In Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang, a breezy take on writer-director Shane Black's trademark buddy action/comedy oeuvre, a petty thief (Robert Downey Jr.) is brought to Los Angeles for an unlikely audition and finds himself in the middle of a murder investigation, along with his high school dream girl (Michelle Monaghan) and a detective (Val Kilmer) who has been training him for his upcoming role.
Documentary:Long Shadows Sharp Tongue: A Noir Documentary
As a screenwriter, Shane Black made millions of dollars from screenplays for the big-budget action movies Lethal Weapon and The Last Boy Scout, among others. With his directing debut Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang, Black mocks and undercuts every cliche he once helped to invent. While fleeing from the cops, small time hood Harry Lockhart (Robert Downey Jr., Wonder Boys) stumbles into an acting audition--and does so well he gets taken to Hollywood, where--pursuing a girl he loved in high school (foxy Michelle Monaghan, North Country)--he gets caught up in twisty murder mystery. His only chance of getting out alive is a private detective named Gay Perry (Val Kilmer, Wonderland, The Doors), who sidelights as a consultant for movies. No plot turn goes untweaked by Black's clever, witty script, and Downey, Kilmer, and Monaghan clearly have a ball playing their screwball variations on action movie stereotypes. There's nothing profound about Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang, but it brings back wicked mischief to a genre that all often takes itself too seriously. --Bret Fetzer

Great movie. The way Robert Downey Jr and Val Kilmer play off each other is extremely entertaining. I love Kilmer's condescending character when dealing with Downey. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Douglas W.

|Why do they keep bringing out Combo HD DVD/Standard DVDs?||
I agree, the combo idea is a terrible one. HD-DVD player owners absolutely do not want to pay extra for the DVD side that we will never use. I also highly doubt that many people who don't own an HD-DVD player want to spend twice as much for a combo disc instead of the regular DVD. They really... Read More

"...private detective named Gay Perry, who sidelights as a consultant for movie..."
And the Amazon review uses a made-up word 'sidelights.' There is no such thing as 'sidelighting.'
