The Nice Guys

The Nice Guys ★★★★

Still a weird mixture of making me think that Shane Black is actually a not very funny arsehole, with his misanthropic, 16yo edgelord, casually sexist kinda humour being.. well too fucking edgy for edginess' sake and too casually sexist and misanthropic for me, and of thinking that Ryan Gosling should do far more comedy and that his screaming here is some of the most hilarious stuff in any American film of the past few years.

Maybe says quite a bit about the state of American cinema and Western comedies in general.

Anyways, still more fun than groan- and cringeworthy, unlike the rest of the director's "oeuvre" when revisited nowadays.
