Verdict: A delightfully entertaining buddy flick.
You have seen Ryan Gosling play a romantic in The Notebook, a bad boy in Crazy, Stupid Love, and an introvert in Lars and the Real Girl. For most of his parts, Gosling has done justice to his characters, adapting to every role he plays. It’s not often that the actor is seen doing comedy, and thus his brilliance in The Nice Guys comes as quite the surprise. This is probably one of his first films where he does not play the stereotypically good-looking character. But it is this movie that will make you fall in love with him. And his acting. And his comic timing.
