Reid Hardison’s review published on Letterboxd:
The Nice Guys is a really solid buddy-cop film (though their aren't really any cops). Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe carry this film from good to near-great. They are an incredibly entertaining duo, and Shane Black's script is as great as I would've expected. Personally, I felt like I was missing something. I may need to see it again for conformation, but there was something that kept me from enjoying the film as much as I had wanted.
