Looking for a quality comedy movie? Well, look no further because the streaming service Netflix has got you covered. The 2016 action movie starring Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe, The Nice Guys, has finally made its way to the online platform and is now available to watch from the comfort of your own home.
Directed by Shane Black, The Nice Guys takes inspiration from Brett Halliday’s novel Blue Murder, and was praised when it was first released – despite only grossing $62 million against a $50 million budget. Telling the story of a private eye and enforcer teaming up to investigate a missing person case, the film managed to impress both audiences and critics alike and, at the time of writing, holds an impressive “certified fresh” rating on Rotten Tomatoes of 91%.
The official synopsis for The Nice Guys reads: “The Nice Guys takes place in 1970s Los Angeles when down-on-his-luck private eye Holland March (Gosling) and hired enforcer Jackson Healy (Crowe) must work together to solve the case of a missing girl and the seemingly unrelated death of a porn star. During their investigation, they uncover a shocking conspiracy that reaches up to the highest circles of power.”
