Just sublime, some of the most fun I've had in a cinema. Way too many great moments to even begin to list, with Gosling and Crowe making a fantastic duo reminescent of the glory days of buddy cop films, supported by wickedly funny, deceptively intelligent dialogue that's immediately recognizable as that of Shane Black. The film disguises its setup/payoff structure so perfectly (spoiler) that the punchlines often come as genuine surprises, and not a single one misses the mark, which is seriously impressive given just how much the film leans on Gosling's slapstick physical comedy. My one misgiving is that I wish the trailers hadn't given so much away, but I still sat there with a stupid great grin on my face the whole time. I think I'm officially a Shane Black fanboy.

Shane Black is the master of the buddy picture. The biggest surprise here is that there were no references to Christmas at all. Laughs were had all the way through. Most of them as a result of Ryan Gosling, who played perfectly with Russell Crowe. This is how you create characters that are incompetent but sympathetic without demeaning them.

So much fun! One of the best buddy-cop movies we have had in a while

Initially confused with the whole Amelia/Misty situation. Wasn't sure what was going on. Can only recall a few laugh-out-loud parts (ankle gun springs to mind). Quite a lot of ideas recycled from "Kiss Kiss Bang Bang" - detectives, missing daughters, highway accidents, parties...

@fonz the last scene was where they meet up in the bar was at christmastime. Lots of christmas decorations outside and inside the bar.

Shane Black does it again. The Nice Guys is the full entertainment package. I love watching a Fiaco unfold, and this violent but hilarious 70s mystery centered on the porn industry fits the bill. Ryan Gosling is quickly becoming one of my favorite comedy actors, and his loser single father P.I. is well matched to Russell Crowe's professional legbreaker - a double act I would want to see again despite by ambivalence about sequels. Maybe we could catch up to these guys (and the frankly more competent daughter) in the 80s? It's rare to get an action comedy that actually treats the action AS comedy sequences, but The Nice Guys manages it, and judging from the different patches laughing at different times in the audience, the movie tickled varied tastes. We've already started using some of the lines in every day conversation...

Reminded me a lot of Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, and I just realized it's the same director. I enjoyed the humor, but I found it hard to switch from light comedy to tragedy at some moments. Lots of macho stuff, too. This passion for shooting beautiful women... Darn...

Judging by the comments (and the votes), I'm going to go ahead and say that disliking this movie is frowned upon.
Well, guess what? I dislike it.

I'm not quite sure to describe why I do dislike it. It's boring, yes, incredibly slow-paced...and it was very muddled, indeed.
However, I think what really rubs me the wrong way is the humour. I'm a pretty easy guy to get a chuckle or two out of, yet I only laughed twice in the entire movie spoiler. That's it.

And I'm not trying to be some elite, hoity-toity person that's proud of having a different opinion. I wanted to like the movie. I was looking forward to it! Yet while I watched the film, all I could think about was how I wished it would be over soon. It just kept dragging on and on, never really going anywhere. It could have been so much more, maybe even a fantastic buddy-cop film, but I guess they did just fine considering the positive feedback.

I could go on, but you get the idea. I probably offended everyone here, but oh well.

Amazing film! Kiss Kiss Bang Bang still warms my heart more, but that could just be nostalgia.
