A lot of people might look at the IMDb rating of this movie and avoid like the "Killer Tomatoes"... That would be a mistake. "Mr. Nice Guy" has both humor AND drama, a great combination during a time when a lot of the movies being made concentrated too hard on one or the other.
Yes, it was a relatively low-budget movie, but acting (and a great comedic script!) in fact took precedence over special effects, gruesome deaths, and "sex & Violence".
While the plot is relatively simple, it is a product that displays the movie-making formulas of the time and has enough plot twists to make it VERY watchable.
