Kiss Kiss Bang Bang
Based on the book, “Bodies Are Where You Find Them”, Director Shane Black’s black comedy, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang is one movie that everyone should see!
Starring Robert Downey Jr., Val Kilmer, and Michelle Monaghan, this comedy-mystery-action-thriller reels you in from start to finish.Released by Warner Bros Pictures in 2005, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang is about a small-time New York crook named Harry Lockhart who stumbles into a movie audition while running away from a robbery. Harry ends up getting the part and he is flown to Los Angeles, where he must take “Detective Lessons” to improve his acting.
Harry narrates throughout the film, recounting as if he were telling a story in front of a campfire. Harry is very much like that crazy uncle who can never tell a joke right; he will occasionally go off on a tangent, realize he has done so, curse about it, then return to the subject at hand.
Hilarity and bumbling heroism unfold as Harry, his gay mentor, and his childhood dream-girl get become part of an intricate murder mystery that seems like it came straight out of a storybook. All the while, Harry involves the audience members, asking if they have solved the case yet.
It is the realistic way in which the story pans out that makes it so relatable. Everyone has that crazy uncle, everyone has their dream-girl/guy they never had the chance to be with, and we all have those moments where it’s hard to believe they’re real.
The Verdict: Must See!
If you don’t have time in your schedule, make it! This film is so amazing that it will be completely worth your while!
