So whether or not The Nice Guys was any good, I was practically pot committed from the beginning. The movie is about a girl who goes missing and a private eye (Gosling) and hired enforcer (Russell Crowe) who are paid to find her. It's set in 1977 with a Los Angeles backdrop.
The Nice Guys isn't afraid of not being politically correct, and mostly that totally works for it. The two leads get into some pretty wild adventures and are constantly trying to keep themselves alive while searching for the missing girl -- all while hit men want them dead.
If you ever saw the movie Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang (which this guy also directed) then you'll definitely see the similarities. So you know that this movie won't be memorable, but will definitely be enjoyable.
