May 5, 2013
The best movie, with the best script, in writer Shane Black's career.
Full Review | Original Score: 9/10
December 17, 2011
[Robert Downey Jr. is] the quickest, sharpest, slyest and wryest comic actor on the screen.
January 2, 2011
Choppy L.A. thriller. Absolutely not for kids.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
September 19, 2010
Its wink-wink eyelids feel heavy from having seen so much in Hollywood and it turns out to be the best accidental detective story since "The Big Lebowski." Downey Jr. and Kilmer make one of the least likely, most inspired buddy pairings of the 2000s.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/4
September 1, 2009
An effervescent ride buoyed in no small amount by the agility of the actors

February 27, 2008
A raucous mix of black comedy and noir thriller.
January 15, 2008
This is how Hollywood action comedies should be done -- smart, fast and a hoot.
December 1, 2007
As a slice of disposably self-referential entertainment, it more than earns its keep, and also acts as an effective witness-protection programme for two stars who were formerly more in need of a bullet than a kiss.
November 27, 2007
[A] cheerful mess of a pulp-fiction parody, pumped full of laughs by Michelle Monaghan, Val Kilmer, and Robert Downey Jr.
November 27, 2007
Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang is as much fun as the title suggests, and packed with banter that rolls off the tongue just as easily.
July 14, 2007
A winkingly funny neo-noir treat.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
June 21, 2007
The film's more than a little bit tounge-in-cheek, and the constant winking at the audience could tire for some. For me, I just kicked back and enjoyed the ride, one far more literate than most shoot 'em ups your'e like to to come across any time soon.

October 9, 2006
A good time for folks who like Raymond Chandler novels and action movies with a quirky side.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
September 28, 2006
It's the laugh-a-minute repartee of this odd couple that drives the movie far more than the ridiculously overly complicated plot.
June 24, 2006
Goes for [snarky postmodernism] immediately, then, to my surprise, deftly pulls it off.
Full Review | Original Score: 8/10
June 24, 2006
An ultra-knowing exercise in genre deconstruction, and something of a charmer to boot.
June 13, 2006
It's a movie that becomes so taken with itself, that it seems to be doing the laughing instead of the viewer.
Full Review | Original Score: C
June 10, 2006
Kiss Kiss Bang Bang remains mostly on target, sending up old detective stories and contemporary cinema simultaneously,
Full Review | Original Score: 7/10
May 13, 2006
A very funny send-up of hard-boiled L.A. detective movies like 'L.A. Confidential' and 'Chinatown.'
Full Review | Original Score: B
