The 30 Best Christmas Movies Ever | 22. Kiss Kiss Bang Bang
22. Kiss Kiss Bang Bang

Year: 2005

Director: Shane Black

Starring: Robert Downey Jr, Val Kilmer, Michelle Monaghan, Corbin Bernsen, Dash Mihok

Admittedly, apart from Michelle Monaghan’s Santa outfit this isn’t a very Christmas-centric movie. But then again, for many viewers that fur-trimmed little red number is the very essence and spirit of Christmas in one neat package, so perhaps that’s good enough. Also, judging by the box-office figures you probably haven’t seen this one, and it’s worth seeking out Shane Black’s twisted, delirious take on the film noir, as thief-turned-actor Downey and private eye Kilmer investigate a murder in Christmas time LA and trade insults like most people trade presents. Both funny-peculiar, in that there’s nothing quite like it out there, and funny ho-ho.

What kind of list is this? I do not know how you created ths list. Christmas in Connecticut is not even on the list. I think you need to rethink what Christmas is all about. More
