Movies like Kiss Kiss Bang Bang?

Kiss Kiss Bang Bang is one of my favorite all-time movies and I was wondering, what are some other films like KKBB?

Thanks in advance.

You know, I never have watched any of the Lethal Weapon movies. I guess now is as good a time as any. Thanks for the recommendation.

The Last Boy Scout and The Long Kiss Goodnight are two Shane Black movies worth checking out.

As much as I love the original Lethal Weapon, Lethal Weapon II still hold a piece of my heart.

That's good, but I prefer the sequel "Expect the Mods to Move This Too."

I haven't seen KKBB, but the premise I've read sounds a little bit like The Stunt Man.

I haven't seen The Stunt Man, I think Kiss Kiss Bang Bang falls under something like a Tarantino or Guy Ritchie film. Fast talking and fast bullets.

Definitely Long Kiss Goodnight. And probably Boondock Saints.

If you like Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, give In Bruges a shot.

I thought the Ice Harvest had a pretty similar tone to this movie. Both are great.

Though not as kinetic as Tarantino or Ritchie, I'll add Robert Altman's The Long Goodbye with Eliot Gould as Philip Marlowe.

Other ones to consider:

The Matador
Lucky Number Slevin
Payback

Kiss Kiss Bang Bang reminded me quite a bit of The Zero Effect.
