-Mike Ryan of Uproxx gave the film a positive review, praising Black's writing, saying: "If you like Shane Black, you will like The Nice Guys. It's probably the Shane Black-est of all the Shane Black movies. Black has a knack for turning action movie expectations on their head mixed with knowing and rich dialogue." IGN gave the film a 9/10, writing, "Working from a tight and sharp script that perfectly balances the characters like a yin and yang of screw-ups ensures The Nice Guys is an absolute joy every step of the way."

-Pleasant film with comic situations of two private detectives who should work together on a case, set in Los Angeles in the 1970s.
