Kiss Kiss Bang Bang
(USA:  Shane Black, 2005), 103 min.
Hosted by Prof. Bob Cousins (New Media)

When a petty thief is mistaken for an actor auditioning for a role in a detective film, it is not long before he is ducking the deadliest babes and bullets La-La Land has to offer.  A hard boiled romp and hilarious whodunit.

Won Empire Award (2006) for Best Thriller.

“A cheerful mess of a pulp-fiction parody, pumped full of laughs.”
