The Nice Guys

is that rare film that has an amazingly funny set of trailers and yet manages to be funnier when you watch the whole thing.  The movie has an engaging and complicated plot, wonderful performances, great dialogue, and so many laugh-out-loud moments you can't count them all.

Shane Black is at the top of both his writing and his directing games in The Nice Guys.  The shots love the sets and the 70's setting.  Yes, it's a violent film, but it manages to be both funny and at times touching in the violent moments.

All of the actors turn in strong performances.  Russell Crowe is funnier than I thought he could be, and Ryan Gosling delivers one wonderful moment after another.

I don't want to tell you any of the plot, because the trailers have already given away enough.  Wait until you need a fun-filled two hours, and get to the theater to see The Nice Guys.  You'll be glad you did.
