2005’s Kiss Kiss Bang Bang marked the turnaround in Robert Downey Jr.’s career and arguably the end of Val Kilmer’s. The tongue in cheek, buddy detective, neo-noire, gave Robert Downey Jr. the chance to shake off the funk from his previous decade of Hollywood shortcomings and provided a platform to workshop his soon-to-be beloved, Tony Stark of the Iron Man/Avengers franchise. The movie also paved the way for writer and director Shane Black who teamed up with Robert Downey Jr. again in Iron Man 3, and continued the tradition of KKBB with his 2016 hit, The Nice Guys. Unfortunately for Val, it appears as though he used every ounce of his acting ability in his role, thus the movie should be seen as a beautiful swan song for his career.

Based, in part, on the novel Bodies Are Where You Find Them by Brett Halliday, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang is a hilarious film mystery that had me laughing till the very end … literally. With Val Kilmer playing gay detective Perry, Robert Downey Jr. playing Harry Lockhart (a thief mistaken for an actor), and Michelle Monaghan as the girl next door with a past turned future starlet, these three will have the biggest adventure of all: solving a murder mystery where they all play their roles. And just when you think the case is solved…it’s not because the bodies keep piling up!

Robert Downey Jr does what he does best, and Val Kilmer lays out his best bite in his role as a gay man with acerbic wit.
Watch it twice for full effect.

Star Gladiator we have very different ideas on "sophisticated humor" you and I. I didn't find anything sophisticated about this movie. I found it be quite ordinary in fact. I would be surprised if anyone in this movie thought highly of it.

Warning! This movie shows bare breasts and will not be suitable for parents trying to erase their childrens' memories of sucking on them.

This is a good action/crime drama/quirky/dark comedy/buddy film. Yes I just wrote that. This one begs to be quantified. Has a Tarantino meets Guy Ritchie-ish way about it. the dialogue is good. Characters memorable. Action good. Story is wild. I liked this movie, but it could be hard for someone to know how to take it instead of just enjoying the ride.

B-Movie Actress: So what do you do for a living?
Harry: Uh, I'm retired. I invented dice when I was a kid. How about you do?

Perry: My $2000 ceramic Vektor my mother got me as a special gift. You threw in the lake next to the car. What happens when they drag the lake? You think they'll find my pistol. Jesus. Look up "idiot" in the dictionary. You know what you'll find?
Harry: A picture of me?
Perry: No! The definition of the word idiot, which you f**king are!

Michele Monaghan is most excellent in this film. Both cute and sexy. She is the most perfect kind for me. And she's got one perfect bottom. And those Oh, so long legs. And that mouth & overall look.

A murder mystery brings together a private eye, a struggling actress, and a thief masquerading as an actor.
