The Nice Guys

Rotten Tomatoes rating: 92%

Plot: In 1970s Los Angeles, a mismatched pair of private eyes investigate a missing girl and the mysterious death of a porn star. The superb director of Kiss Kiss Bang Bang and Iron Man 3, Shane Black, has crafted another brilliant dark comedy and Ryan Gosling has never been funnier.

The critics said: “Quick on its wits and fast with its fists, this is Black firmly back doing what he does best. And nobody out there does it better” – Empire

Watch it if you’re in the mood for: A buddy cop comedy that’s genuinely funny and inventive.
