Kiss Kiss Bang Bang

Kiss Kiss Bang Bang

(2005, Dir. Shane Black)

Maybe it’s just me, but while watching this movie, it felt like I was watching outtakes. Witty repartee and snappy “performances” (were any of these characters believable?) make this meta-heavy flick watchable but certainly not good. Robert Downey, Jr. and Val Kilmer have lots of fun hamming it up and spewing Noir 2.0. However, the writing seems really forced — for chrissakes, it includes a My Friend Flicka reference — but maybe I’m just not L.A. enough to get the jokes. Aims for Get Shorty, achieves Be Cool.
