You forgot the most important credit.

Written by Shane Black

I kind of think this goes without saying but Black seems vastly underrated-nobody but me shouts about Lethal Weapon. The Last Boy Scout is another great action film, and now LKG can't get any love (I checked the Harlin director's list and everyone's voting Die Hard 2, ya bunch of sheep! DH2 is RUBBISH!). To indicate Black's class he writes a short called AWOL under the pen name Holly Martins, nice. Everyone likes Kiss Kiss Bang Bang though...don't they? I'll tear what little hair I have out if anyone disagrees.

btw Brian Cox and David Morse are in LKG. I'm going to get quite boring about this.

The memorable quotes for LKG are a riot!

Unknown henchman: I'm hurt real bad. I think I'm dying.
Timothy: Continue dying. Out.

Mitch Henessey: [singing] Putting the keys in my left pocket. Hmm hmm hmm hmm hmm. Gun in the right-hand side.
Samantha Caine: It makes a bulge, people can see.
Mitch Henessey: Ya want me to stick it in my pants and shoot my damn dick off?
Samantha Caine: Now you're a sharpshooter?

Now that I know it's Black it sounds like him, though I doubt I'd guess it if I didn't.
