Nutty Professor, The - The Monkey's Spanish
While at the mental institute, Eddie Murphy is asked to speak to an orangutan. The orangutan does not respond to him until he is on his way out, at which point it says "Adios, muchas gracias por nada" (Bye, thanks a lot for nothing).
He also says "Tu conoces Will Smith?"
"Tu" meaning you, and "conoces" meaning know. The slip-up is that when you are talking about knowing a person, like in this case, you would need to put the word "a" in between "conoces" and "Will Smith." Otherwise it's bad grammar.

And another thing, I have studied Spanish for 3 years now and you only have to use the personal "a" when you are doing the action towards somebody. but in a case to ask if you know somebody, that is not an action and the personal "a" is not used.
