You Stupid Man was filmed in New York City and Toronto on December 2000 to January 2001. The shots of the World Trade Center remained in the film after September 11th attacks in 2001 as a tribute.


You Stupid Man made its premiere at The Hamptons International Film Festival on October 18, 2002.[1]


Reviewer Michael Rankins noted the plot was "while not stupid, the movie does manage to be agonizingly predictable"[2] and had many similarities to When Harry Met Sally..., as one reviewer explained, the two characters "decided to follow [the When Harry Met Sally] story line instead of coming up with their own".[3][dead link]
