Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: The Nice Guys hearkens back to the buddy comedies of a bygone era while adding something extra courtesy of a knowing script and the irresistible chemistry of its leads.
KCCI (Des Moines, IA)
A fantastic throwback to several eras. At its heart it's a classic 1940s film noir...wrapped in the polyester styling of 1970s crime films...contains the fun 1980s buddy-film banter and chemistry...punctuated by the ultra-violence of the 1990s.

Freewheeling buddy comedy has lots of mature content.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that The Nice Guys is a '70s-set action movie/buddy comedy starring Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe. It taps into all that was racy/iffy about that time period, including the rise of the porn industry in Los Angeles, the generally somewhat-lax approach to parenting (i.e. drinking/smoking in front of your kids), and more. Teen girls are shown flirting or making out with men twice and three times their age, drinking in the presence of adults, and discussing sex acts openly with adults. Women walk around topless; you also see bare bottoms and lots of skimpy outfits. When characters watch a porn movie, the volume is turned up high; characters having sex in a porn film are shown from the side. The film is also laced with profanity (including "f--k," "s--t," and more) and drug use (mostly weed, and by adults) and has a lot of realistic, sometimes-graphic violence (shooting, killing, fighting, a character falling to his death with a giant splat, children in peril).
