The Nice Guys Private Dicks DVD
If there’s one thing to know about The Nice Guys before you see it, it’s that the raucous conspiracy thriller is full of nice guys and private dicks.
Starring Russell Crowe and Ryan Goslingas two investigators tasked with finding out the truth behind a mysterious porn star death and a disappeared daughter, the duo push the limits of what’s considered respectable, professional tactics in the most ’70s ways possible. They may be called the “nice guys,” but there’s a wink and a nod in that sentiment—their charm and success at the gambit mired by their own poor life decision-making . With their particular brand of Holland March and Jackson Healy-isms in mind, we devised anincredibly silly and irreverent game, “Nice Guys or Private Dicks,” so that the fellas could use their specific set of skills for the greater good (and by that we mean: a laugh or two). Thankfully, the film’s stars, as well as co-star Matt Bomer, creator Shane Black, and executive producer Joel Silver were down to clown.
