The Nice Guys
A bumbling private eye and a heavy handed stand over merchant join forces to locate a young woman who has vanished.
'The Nice Guys' is a 1970s period caper using a mix of violence and humour in an endeavour to be endearingly goofy. Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling make for a good pair a la Butch and Sundance although both are outshone by a newcomer Aussie, Angourie Rice who plays Gosling's older than her years teenage daughter and who looks to have a bright future.
Cs loved it. I was less impressed but still found more to laugh and smile at than in other supposed comedies I have viewed in the past twelve months.
