Pointless Nonsense

Posted in movies by Bill on May 21, 2016

nice-guysThe Nice Guys is Shane Black’s latest thing along the lines of Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, this time with Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe. Not exactly the leads you’d expect for a very comedic PI story, but it works. Very well, in fact. The only real complaint I have is that a couple of the big jokes were given away in the trailers.

Crowe is basically the straight man (and the heavy), while Gosling is the idiot who stumbles his way into clues and leads and things. Gosling’s character’s daughter sort of plays the Penny Gadget role, being the smart and capable one who helps clean up after her father’s fuckups. Since it’s set in the 70s, there could totally be a sequel set in the early 90s or something.
