A smart action-comedy is a rarity, but Shane Black's directorial debut brilliantly spoofs Hollywood and the buddy comedy genre he helped create with an irreverent script that's a real treat.

Harry (Robert Downey Jr.) is a two-bit thief who ends up in Hollywood when hired to play a detective in a movie. There, he's teamed with Perry van Shrike (Val Kilmer), a real detective known as "Gay Perry" who shows Harry the ropes. They quickly get caught up in a complex mystery involving Harry's childhood friend Harmony (Michelle Monaghan), a failed actress who also deems herself to be a bit of a gumshoe.

The Bottom Line:
"Kiss Kis, Bang Bang" is one of those rare action-comedies that can be appreciated by more than just teen males thanks to Shane Black's perpetually clever script. Women should appreciate Michelle Monaghan's character and the comedic friendship/romance between her and Downey Jr., but the real reason to see this movie is to watch Downey and Kilmer turn into one of the most unlikely onscreen comedy duos in movie history.
