At the end of the movie, Val Kilmer says not to leave; to stay and watch the credits; and if you're wondering who the Best Boy is, he's someone's nephew. (The actual Best Boy credit is Jack Bauer.) See more »
I saw this movie at the 2005 Toronto Film Festival and expected it to
be the typical film noir genre. This seemed to be the case for the
first couple of minutes of narrative monologue before the jokes started
coming fast and furious. This turned out to be a highly entertaining
comedy/buddy film couched in a tongue in cheek film noir setting. The
dialogue was witty and the chemistry between Robert Downey Jr and Val
Kilmour was great. Some of the jokes went by so fast that I'll have to
see this movie again to see what I missed as I was still laughing at
the previous one. The director spoke before the movie and commented on
how the producers were nervous about the risky choice of actors. This
was a reference to Robert Downey Jr.'s past addiction problems, but
this film proved that he was worth the risk. I saw 10 films at this
year's film festival and this one was my favorite.
