Kiss Kiss Bang Bang


#1

How did I miss this movie in theaters?
How did this thing not make a hojillion dollars?
How did it not get its own qt3 thread until now?

This movie rocks; it’s honestly the best thing I’ve seen in a year. A nice mishmash of genres with snappy dialog (reminiscent of Aaron Sorkin at points) and great performances. Go netflix it now!


#2

I too loved it and I too wondered about the lack of Qt3 threadness. I can’t wait to listen to the commentary track.


#3

Agreed, it’s a fun movie, and the Val is especially entertaining. Crazy that it’s from the same guy that wrote the Lethal Weapon movies.


#4

I think it was a pretty low profile, limited release. Thought it was great.


#5

Weird, I just watched this the other day. Very enjoyable movie.


#6

I saw it like 5 months ago. Good stuff.


#7

Eh. I thought it was too cute for its own good. I was with it until about 3/4th of the way through and then just had enough.


#8

Shane Black writes the best snappy dialogue ever. That said, I prefer The Long Kiss Goodnight and The Last Boy Scout for my money. KKBB felt a little too quick and plastic. Though still better than most of what’s in theaters, lest I give the wrong impression.


#9

Maybe maybe the the stupid stupid title title turned turned people people off off.


#10

Jeff’s been trying to sell me on this, but the fact that Shane Black wrote Long Kiss Goodnight and Last Boy Scout [b]and[/b] The Monster Squad wins me over.

That he was Hawkins in Predator is just icing.


#11

I rented it about a month ago. Great movie. I need to buy it.


#12

Weird. I rented this about a week ago as well. It was fun. It’s hard for me to think of a single thing I’ve seen Robert Downy Jr. in that I disliked.


#13

Prison?


#14

Okay, I’ll set’em up, you knock’em down.


#15

I rented this earlier in the year – or I thought I did, and instead got another movie of the same name. I liked Stellan Skarsgård’s character – he was like Grady Tripp from Wonder Boys, except he was a burned-out assassin instead of a burned-out author. Unfortunately Chris Penn played a mewling man-child who learns about love and life … ugh. Would have been a nice little sleeper without Penn making big googly eyes and pretending to cry. Still looking forward to the Downey/Kilmer one.


#16

American action film done as it should be done. It was a pity Shane Black went missing for so many years, although the commercial failure of KKBB probably dooms his return. The viewing public suck…


#17

I loved this as well - rented it about a month ago. I like Robert Downey Jr. and Val Kilmer but man did Michelle Monaghan look amazing in this. I thought it was a fun twist on the classic film noir PI story.


#18

Meh. I thought the prequel was far better.


#19

I wasn’t expecting anything from this, so I was pleasantly suprised. I nearly died laughing when he was caught unaware by the dead body.

So you’re saying it should’ve been named “Kiss Bang”?
