Kiss Kiss Bang Bang: Grade B


Kiss Kiss Bang Bang

Robert Downey Jr., Val Kilmer, Michelle Monaghan

RDJ is an apprentice detective to VK in Hollywood. I couldn’t make any sense out of the plot (it is apparently for a younger audience than me), but the important thing is that the movie has a high corpse count. The script is self-consciously clever, funny in its own right though not believable. The tone is noir, with a hard-boiled Sam Spade voiceover, but it is not a serious movie. Not a comedy either, despite the wise-cracking and sexual anxiety. More of a “romp.” Enjoyable but forgettable.
