kiss kiss, bang bang
the writer of the lethal weapons makes his directorial debut with an almost spoof of his patented buddy action flicks. while i found some of the "talk to the audience" narrative to be annoying, those feelings quickly got swept aside by the film's comedic moments. val kilmer is great, robert downey is fine, michelle monaghan is kind of generic, but all in all, for a movie that i'd been highly anticipating, "kiss kiss, bang bang" didn't disappoint. the best part of the movie for me though, might have been the very well done opening credits -- loved the art style.
