The Nice Guys

The Nice Guys ★★★½

Not quite KISS KISS BANG BANG but still a Shane Black joint--that is to say, still a hell of a lot of fun. More grammar jokes, but a bit stiffer on the buddy-cop subverting. Black seems to only do one thing, but he does it so well he's almost worn out his own territory. Still, Gosling and Crowe are an awesome match-up, but I could have used a lot less of the genius teenager who is all innocence and witty comments, but damn, that kid must be deeply emotionally scarred.

Also, does Shane Black love to hate LA parties, or hate to love them?
