must watch : KISS KISS BANG BANG
one of those DVDs that sat on my shelf for more than 3 months
until I popped it in last weekend,
and surprise, surprise!
IT'S ONE OF THE BEST MOVIES I'VE SEEN THIS YEAR!!!
This Movie is Laugh-Out Loud Funny.
and not in the Wayan Brothers/Adam Sandler one-joke "you know it's coming from a mile away set-up" either.
It's real comedy that won't insult your intelligence.
Take note, you have to pay careful attention to the movie's smart script.
KKBB is a film noir spoof, complete with a flickering motel neon sign,
a dame-to-die-for, a true femme fatale, literally and figuratively, in the character of Harmony, played by the supercute Michelle Monaghan,
and completed by hardboiled dialogue, violent action, multiple murders,
with two rogue "detectives" superbly played by Robert Downey Jr. and Val Kilmer,
who haven't had this much fun acting since Chances Are and Top Secret! respectively.
The movie looks like it was shot by Michael Mann, very sharp and glossy.
It's also a love story, a buddy movie, a twisting mystery, and a kinky comedy.
If the silliness meets violence formula seems familiar,
no surprise there,
as this movie is the directorial debut of Shane Black,
writer of the Lethal Weapon series.
WATCH KISS KISS BANG BANG!!!
p.s. the title, KKBB is actually a homage to none other than 007.
"Mr. Kiss Kiss Bang Bang" was the theme song of Sean Connery's James Bond in "Thunderball".
