Kiss Kiss Bang Bang

Kiss Kiss Bang Bang ★★★½

Judd Apatow has said if you want to write a comedy, write a drama and add jokes. This is the perfect example of that. The plot on paper is a straight up classic Noir (thus the chapters being named after Raymond Chandler books) but when you throw Downey and Kilmer in it, it becomes a lot of fun.

I feel like this is kinda RDJs audition reel for Iron Man 3 years later. He’d gotten sober at this point but hadn’t regained mainstream success. It also caught Val Kilmer at a cool point in his career before his more recent decline in health.

It’s not high art but it’s a hell of a good time.
