A petty thief posing as an actor 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 and a detective who's been training him for his upcoming role... Written by
Warner Brothers was willing to produce the movie with a larger budget, if Harrison Ford was to play the detective. When he passed on it, several other options were briefly considered before Val Kilmer was offered the role. See more »
When Harry discovers a small pistol in the glove compartment of Perry's Mercedes, Perry refers to it as a Derringer, and even specifies (by way of a joke) that it only carries two shots, as Derringers invariably do. However, it is clearly visible as a North American Arms mini-revolver. See more »
By the way, this thing?

Quick witted and fast paced - Not at all what I expected
I was lucky enough to see a preview of Kiss, Kiss, Bang, Bang at a 'mystery' film showing at the Rivoli Cinemas in Melbourne recently.
I really don't know what I was expecting, but I wasn't expecting to enjoy the film as throughly as I did.
The film centers around Harry (Robert Downey Jnr) a petty thief who while escapes into an audition for a new detective movie. After an amusing audition, he's whisked of the bright lights and parties of LA.
I won't go too much into the story because to give any of it away would take away from the unpredictable nature of the film. Worth seeing just for Val Kilmer's Gay Perry!
