Reviews:
4 stars out of 5 -- "[W]ith an impressive hit rate of gags and one-liners, with the ambient feelgood factor periodically boosted with party scenes and 70s soundtrack album material. An innocent pleasure." - 05/15/2016 The Guardian


"Gosling and Crowe’s comic rapport is a big factor. Going along with the ’70s vibe, the former aims for a sweet spot somewhere between Bruce Dern and Elliott Gould, while the latter plays gruff with a hint of self-parody." -- Grade: B - 05/19/2016 A.V. Club


3 stars out of 4 -- "Gosling completely sells it, as he does throughout the entire film....It's his gift for slapstick, combined with his fantastic chemistry with Crowe, that makes these NICE GUYS worth a look." - 05/20/2016 RogerEbert.com


"Black has a gonzo sensibility that can invest a stale Hollywood formula with an infectious sense of play." - 05/19/2016 Los Angeles Times


"Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling are clearly enjoying the hell out of each other in this crime caper set in 1977 Los Angeles." - 05/18/2016 Rolling Stone


"In terms of plot, Black likes to throw curveballs, sinkers, sliders, spitballs, anything that will keep us off balance..." - 05/19/2016 Boston Globe


4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he Crowe-Gosling chemistry is peachy. Gosling, in particular, shows a real prowess for physical comedy." - 05/30/2016 Total Film


4 stars out of 5 -- "Shane Black doesn’t skimp on its hard-bitten noir aspects, but there's depth too." - 06/02/2016 Empire


"Gosling is the real revelation, alternating smoothly between sharp line deliveries and loopy physical comedy." - 05/20/2016 The Atlantic
