The Nice Guys
Down on his luck private eye Holland March (Ryan Gosling) and world weary
muscle-for-hire Jackson Healy (Russell Crowe) have nothing in common until
they're plunged into a life-or-death mystery when the missing persons case
they're both following makes them the target of trained killers.
Now grudgingly working together along with March's precocious teenage
daughter Holly, they must navigate the smog-filled days and neon-soaked nights
of 1970’s Los Angeles to follow a labyrinthine trail of clues to finally find
Amelia, the missing girl. But this is only the tip of the iceberg, as Amelia
leads them to a multi-billion dollar conspiracy involving a murdered porn star,
Amelia's powerful mother and people at the highest levels of the Detroit auto
industry who will do anything to protect their secrets.
Healy and March must now call upon all of their resources – legal or
otherwise – to save themselves and ensure that the truth comes to light..
- " The sort of cheerfully hostile buddy bash that's been a staple since
the '80s, only this one is singularly clever about its own triviality, and it
offers the scruffy pleasure of seeing two great actors dial down their gravitas
with style " – Variety
- " Makes concessions to nothing and nobody " –
- "Crowe and Gosling are Disco – a comedy coupling I am praying
already will totally be back for more. Please green light the sequel already!
