The opening party, taking place at Harlan Dexter's mansion, was shot at Shane Black's mansion. In the years between Black's last produced feature, The Long Kiss Goodnight (1996), and this one, Black had become infamous for throwing similar large, extravagant parties at that mansion, filled with the same kind of industry big-wigs and up-and-comers.

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 »
In LA, while escaping from the police after an unsuccessful robbery, the small time thief Harry Lockhart (Robert Downey Jr.) is accidentally submitted to an audition for a role of detective in a movie, and invited to a party. He meets the homosexual private eye Gay Perry (Val Kilmer), who suggests him to participate of an investigation to develop his character. He also meets the gorgeous aspirant actress Harmony Faith Lane (Michelle Monaghan), and finds that she was a friend of his childhood for whom he had a crush. Harry and Perry get involved in an intricate murder case with many leads. With the support of Harmony, they find the sordid truth of the case.
"Kiss Kiss Bang Bang" is a funny, but also violent, action movie with an original screenplay, where the lead character is actually the narrator of the events. Robert Downey Jr. is excellent in the role of the loser Harry Lockhart and shows a great chemistry with the delicious Michelle Monaghan, and also with his gay partner Val Kilmer. The story in a certain moment becomes very confused with many subplots, but in the end all of them are satisfactorily resolved. The usually efficient police, at least in American movies, apparently vanished in Los Angeles, since there are countless car chases and shootings without any police action. My vote is seven.
Title (Brazil): "Beijos e Tiros" ("Kisses and Shots")
