The Nice Guys

Well, they’re not that nice.

But they’ll do.

An oddball, loving tribute to ’70s detectives, the kind who used to anchor TV shows like The Rockford Files, Shane Black’s dark comedy follows two tough-nosed, belligerent, useful idiots as they untangle a complicated case of murder ‘n mayhem.

Everyone has a secret or ten, and it leads back to big-time power brokers hiding in the shadows, as you should always suspect.

Rich in peppery dialogue, this is a film which gets even better the second time around, as you look past the main plot and marinate in the grace notes.
