The year of 2016 has seen the rise of “buddy comedies” with several big budget lists entering the fray. Amongst them, Shane Black’s “Nice Guys” starring Ryan Gosling and Russel Crowe in opposite yet complementary roles. The film itself isn’t particularly memorable, apart from its definitive 70’s vibe and color palette, and the very weak plot leaves much to be desired – with a ridiculous premise that doesn’t quite catch viewers attentions. Even so, it manages to become a momentarily funny film that takes advantage of good performances by its main cast: a plus point given to very good dialogue moments throughout. In the end, it might be worth a watch, albeit in a halfhearted way.
