When the camera zooms in on the newspaper article detailing the story about the film crew coming to the small town of Embry, Indiana to film a movie, the website www.embrystar.com is clearly visible under the name of the newspaper - the article was supposedly written and published in 1982, eight years before the first website existed.

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 »
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!
