In certain circles of the film world, it is cause for great celebration when a new film written and/or directed by Shane Black is released. A sort of Christmas, if you will 😉
Christmas has come for this film circle. The Nice Guys takes place in the 70s in Los Angeles with Ryan Gosling as a widowed father, alcoholic, and incompetent private eye who ends up falling backwards into working with paid enforcer Russell Crowe to find a missing girl named Amelia. How this ties into an art porno film, the Detroit car industry, and Hannibal Buress as a giant talking bee is something that will be your pleasure to discover, hopefully. Our feelings about this film aren’t shared across the board, but hopefully (from the viewpoint of those of us who DID really like it) our discussion, featuring Chris, Beau, Herman, and Sarah can lead you in the right direction.
