According to iMDB, William Tyler Smith's Kiss Me Again is the third film to go by that name (the fourth if you count Di er wen, a 1960 film from Hong Kong whose title translates to the same). In 1931 William A. Seiter directed an operetta-style musical called Kiss Me Again, in which Edward Everett Horton took a break from the fruity sidekick roles to play a singing soldier. The 1925 silent version of Kiss Me Again starred Clara Bow under the direction of Ernst Lubitsch. Though I can't provide personal testimony to either film (the former is obscure and the latter is believed to be lost), any combination of the above names on a marquee would instantly stir up ideas of sophisticated sex farce. It's not clear if first time feature-maker Smith meant to reference -- or if he was even aware of -- the other Kiss Me Agains, but his film plays as though he's trying to approximate a genre that he's not very familiar with. According to the press notes, Kiss Me Again wants to be a social issue film, which is laughable enough that there's no use dwelling on it. With its slacker savant hero, punk pop soundtrack, and embarrassingly elementary understanding of female sexuality (not to mention contemporary queerness), Kiss Me Again feels sort of like a direct-to-video sequel to Chasing Amy. Except that at least Kevin Smith is occasionally capable of writing funny jokes.
