It's a fun experience.

No shocker, Shane Black is amazing.

Who knew Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe would make such a side-splitting pair?

...nobody else makes films quite like this. They're a joy, and watching The Nice Guys was an absolute pleasure.

THE NICE GUYS is a crucial reminder that we can do action comedies without constantly winking to the audience. It shows not everyone in this type of film needs to be described as 'a badass' - they can be a f***ing idiot, and that's ok.

Don't even get me started on the plot. Again, my suspicion is that Black and Bagarozzi constructed a convoluted story on purpose...

Grumpy Gosling and growling Crowe are fun, but they can't save The Nice Guys from feeling shoddy.
October 21, 2019
The growing partnership between [Russell] Crowe and [Ryan] Gosling is fun to see develop especially when it begins with repeated punches and a broken arm.

Crowe and Gosling are Disco -- a comedy coupling I am praying already will totally be back for more.

It could certainly use a lot of trimming, especially towards the drawn-out third act. The laughs become a bit thinner and the plot a bit of a drag. However, the journey to get there is a delightful - wait for it - romp.

If Kiss, Kiss, Bang, Bang were a hot, unconventional radio single (think anything off of Carly Rae Jepsen's E-MO-TION) then The Nice Guys is like a really great B-side (think any of E-MO-TION's bonus tracks).

Sporting dialogue hotter than a recently spent shell casing and comedy slightly less dark than a necrophiliac stand-up comedian's set, The Nice Guys targets a niche audience.

April 2, 2019
Gosling's never been funnier, Crowe's never suited a role better, and Angourie Rice is a revelation.

February 19, 2019
Action-packed, clever, funny and surprisingly tender at times, it checks all the boxes for not just an excellent buddy comedy, but an excellent movie period.

The Nice Guys is a refreshing entry to Shane Black's filmography. [Full Review in Spanish]
January 15, 2019
It revels in its setting, both time and place, giving off a cool and easy vibe that fits the material perfectly.

Who says nice guys can't finish first occasionally?

The Nice Guys is an anomaly - it's a summertime actioner starring two hugely popular actors that seems specifically designed for the sensibilities of the over-35 demographic.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
November 14, 2018
With a pairing of the comedic charm from Ryan Gosling and the pure grit of Russell Crowe the Nice Guys are a match...
November 7, 2018
Strip away the jokes that are the backbone of this terrific movie and you would still be left with one of the most solid crime thrillers in recent memory.
