The Nice Guys

The Nice Guys ★★★★★

"You know what's really dangerous is those killer bees."
"You know why they call 'em killer bees? Cuz they kill ya."
"Good point."

Sat down in the theater and poured a half-pint of bourbon into my root beer, the way this was meant to be seen. Two scumbags solve a mystery through a haze of bullets, booze, broads and cigarettes. Vice is inherent, the nice guys don't change much, but they make some wisecracks along the way. This is a Shane Black picture through & through, and I wouldn't have it any other way. Has all my favorites - dead porn stars, 70's sideburns, Keith David, fish tanks, mermaids and splattering corpses. Absolute perfection and the champion of 2016. All hail.

p.s.: Good news. I had enough Regal Crown Club points to cash in for the official NICE GUYS "adhesive mustache & soul patch", so i can wear that every day now. Groovy.
