Mystery on DVD: Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang

Mysteries on DVDNew on DVD this week isKiss Kiss, Bang Bang Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang, a comedy-thriller based in part on Brett Halliday's Bodies are Where You Find Them, the fifth mystery in the Michael Shayne series published in the 40's and 50's.

In Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang, a petty thief (Robert Downey Jr.) is brought to Los Angeles for an unlikely audition and finds himself in the middle of a murder investigation, along with his high school dream girl (Michelle Monaghan) and a detective (Val Kilmer) who has been training him for his upcoming role.

Reviews of this movie, which was virtually unseen when released last year, have been uniformly positive. FilmCritic.com probably sums it up best: "Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang works as a buddy cop picture, a noir, and a straight-up comedy."
