A motorcycle stunt rider turns to robbing banks as a way to provide for his lover and their newborn child, a decision that puts him on a collision course with an ambitious rookie cop navigating a department ruled by a corrupt detective.
A series of thirteen Instagram shorts, based on Healy's 'word of the day' calendar, in which we are given a word and its definition and then treated to a short clip from The Nice Guys (2016) that relates in some way.
It's 1949 Los Angeles, the city is run by gangsters and a malicious mobster, Mickey Cohen. Determined to end the corruption, John O'Mara assembles a team of cops, ready to take down the ruthless leader and restore peace to the city.
In the late 1960s/early 1970s, a San Francisco cartoonist becomes an amateur detective obsessed with tracking down the Zodiac Killer, an unidentified individual who terrorizes Northern California with a killing spree.

Set against the backdrop of 1977 Los Angeles, The Nice Guys opens when single father and licensed PI Holland March (Gosling) is hired to investigate the apparent suicide of famous porn star Misty Mountains. As the trail leads him to track down a girl named Amelia (Qualley), he encounters less licensed and less hands-off private eye Jackson Healey (Russell Crowe) and his brass knuckles, both hired by the young hippie. However, the situation takes a turn for the worse when Amelia vanishes and it becomes apparent that March wasn't the only party interested. As both men are forced to team up, they'll have to take on a world filled with eccentric goons, strippers dressed as mermaids and even a possible government conspiracy.Written by
When Healey is fighting the Older Guy at Sid's house party, Healey delivers a punch combination exactly like the combination Maximus uses on Commodus in Gladiator (2000). Both Healey and Maximus are played by Russell Crowe. See more »
During Holland March's search for Amelia Kuttner, the bourbon bartender recognizes her and claims that she was at the bar recently, drinking "Bourbon Martinis," to which March responds, "Well, that's disgusting." A Martini is a cocktail composed of either gin, or vodka, mixed with dry vermouth and served straight-up, or on the rocks with olives or a twist of lemon.
A Manhattan, however, is a cocktail composed of either bourbon, or rye, mixed with sweet vermouth and bitters and served straight-up, or on the rocks with a cherry. A Rob Roy is prepared and served the same way, but substitutes the bourbon, or rye for scotch.
March is correct in expressing his disgust towards Amelia's drink order. See more »
Matching Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling in this awkward partnership actually works out very well, they are very true to their character, both a bit off in their own way, but together they really are the nice guys :)
It is the funniest film I have seen in a long time and it really deserves a lot of credit for keeping a good story and not just relying on slap-stick humor, it has both subtle and loud comedy, it has action and something going on all the time, but above all it has timing and precision in the way it delivers the story and how the characters handle the different situations.
