Definitely one of the funniest movie I’ve seen this year. Gosling and Crowe makes a dynamic duo, playing off great chemistry. Director Shane Black gives them plenty to play with harkening back to days of great buddy cop action comedies like Lethal Weapon, which Black penned. The formula for these type of movies is not necessarily rewritten here, but made so much better. The story is ludicrous from the get-go, and as it moves along, it’s rather pointless to try to put the puzzle pieces together, until the final piece is revealed and then everything makes sense. The script calls for us to not to try to figure it out but to just enjoy the ride, and enjoy it you will. The banter between the leads along with the physical comedy of Gosling had me laughing, if not then in smiles through pretty much the whole movie. Nice Guys has a bit of mature content so keep the kiddos home, but in my honest Noble opinion, The Nice Guys is well worth the watch.
