About Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang
It's an easy mistake to make, stumbling into a Hollywood casting session while trying to flee from the cops. So you can hardly blame petty thief Harry Lockhart (Robert Downey Jr) when he's confused with a bona fide actor, whisked off to LA and paired with gay detective Perry (Val Kilmer) to prepare him for a big screen test. But when he runs into high school sweetheart and wannabe actress Harmony Faith Lane (Michelle Monaghan), Harry becomes embroiled in a real-life murder mystery. It's a preposterous proposition on paper - but the inspired pairing of Downey and Kilmer, combined with a razor sharp script dripping with Hollywood satire, makes this old fashioned buddy comedy an unlikely hit. Highly recommended.
