PADDY WAGON HARMS

I forgot the best part about KISS KISS BANG BANG. You've just watched this perfectly enjoyable movie when the end credits come up. And there's this completely inapropriate latter-day Sting song playing over the credits. You don't have much interest in checking these credits out, but the shock of the lazy song holds you just long enough to realize, "Sting is drunk." Sting is el BLOTTO. Slurring his words and uttering phrases that make no sense. Then the voice sounds a bit off, and you think it's that guy from Coldplay. Only he's drunk. Coldplay is el BLOTTO.

You get to the end of the credits (the song plays all the way through) and you discover that the song was written and performed by Robert Downey Jr. himself. Clearly, it was listening to this recording that convinced him to enter rehab. If I went on about tasting my medicine, the paddy wagon face in the clouds, the smell of my robot and holding you in my harms, you'd recomend rehab to me too.

Actually, he's got a whole album of this. It's wonderful. Or, rather, it's terrible. Awful stuff. But you should at least do the 30-second preview dealy on iTunes and laugh at this stuff. Because it's very funny.

The reviews are great. "Acting talent AND music talent? Is that FAIR?" HAHAHAHAHA I missed that one of the reviewers was Dudley Manlove.

Wait, was he the guy who said Exile was written by Mike Jegger? Maybe it's a different Exile on Main St.?

But you should see Kiss Kiss. It's good. You'll like. Reminds me of the Bourne movies as solid entertainments.

You need to do something about that back. Next time you throw it out, don't go all drunk dumpster diving for it before dawn cracks. Just leave it there for the garbagemen to haul to Staten Island.
