Three sentence movie reviews: The Nice Guys
Thank goodness Mr. Gosling has ended his acting hiatus, and thankfully he has starred in something that doesn’t require him to be silent and sad-eyed all the time.* He and Mr. Crowe make a funny comedy team in this story that is mostly about the two of them being a funny comedy team and not so much about the big-three automakers colluding.** The 70s details were nice also.
Where watched: Laurelhurst Theater, with Matt and a bunch of theater goers who were rather chatty. Not off-topic chatty, but they reacted to what was going on in the movie very verbally.
*Though I did enjoy the Place Beyond the Pines.
**I felt that the whole plot motivation was shoehorned in at the last minute.

Oh, I wanted to see this! I feel like it came and went out of the theater so fast here. Sadly, it hasn’t made it to Netflix DVD yet, but I imagine that it will soon.
It did seem to cycle through quickly.
Less gerbily this movie? No mention in the review. I certainly hope so!
He’s always gerbil-y looking to me. Even when he looks really good. I do appreciate his acting skilz and his comedic timing.
Okay – all commented for those posts in my reader. I have been such a slug that many have fallen off. Next week I shall endeavor to locate those lovelies as well.
