The Nice Guys

Comedy Crime


 

In 1970's Los Angeles, two private investigators begrudgingly collaborate to unravel a conspiracy surrounding the suspicious death of a porn actress.

"The Nice Guys" is a forgettable crime caper that's not overly funny or boring. It's a film largely carried by its two famous stars, who diverge from more traditional roles to bring their charm to the swinging 70's. They do make an amusing duo, and combined with a precocious and delightful team member, together they glide through the contrived plot with intermittent bouts of laughter. Harking back to the buddy-comedies of yesteryear, audiences wishing to relive the era and nostalgia with find the most enjoyment. Perfectly tolerable guys.
