A story about this — 4 years ago
Kiss Kiss Bang Bang was directed by Shane Black, who wrote one of my favorite movies “Long Kiss Goodnight,” and stars Robert Downey Jr. and Val Kilmer. It is based on a New York petty thief who ends up in Hollywood due to a mistake identity. He is then placed in a crazy situation with different storylines that seem to not be connected, but at the end we find out they really are. It kinds of reminds me of a Tom Robbins book.
I thought the movie was great. It kept me laughing, and I even cried a little. Robert Downey Jr. and Val Kilmer were great, and they really made their characters come to life. It showed how crazy Hollywood is, and the underlying secrets that everyone knows but no one talks about. I consider it a great, dark comedy that is definitely better than what you will think it will be.
