Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang is a grin-making machine. Itís relentlessly clever and quick. This is the kind of movie that shows up all the Ďfuní movies that people love. Black has sat in the director chair and begun his new career by reminding us that a fun movie can also be smart. That you can go to the movies, have a complete fucking blast, and not feel like you were being condescended to for two hours.
This is one of those films that you want your friends to see because you want to have someone to bounce these great lines off of. Itís the kind of movie that you want to share because elements of it are going to become part of your personal vocabulary in the months and the years to come. This movie is a classic already Ė youíll be quoting it and referencing it as soon as you have walked out of the theater.
If I have as much fun in a theater with another movie this year as I had with Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang, 2005 will go down in history as the greatest year for cinema ever.
