A fun, action-filled comedy with Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson. Lot's of swearing, but still funny (sometimes because of the swearing). Surprisingly has some heart to it, more so than I would've expected. As usual the leads are awesome and play off each other beautifully. Gary Oldman does a good job as the villain as well. All around a fun afternoon.

Clever anti-buddy action light comedy. Funny with great chase and fight scenes.

I only checked this DVD because of the actors, am a big fan of both Samuel Jackson & Ryan Reynolds. This movie was so predictable with the plot, & major action scenes where way unrealistic. I fast forward thru them, so disappointing.

1/3 amazing, epic buddy action film; 2/3 what were they thinking?! I seriously think that with a good editor you could have a much better film. The two leads are great and have fantastic chemistry, most of the action sequences were pretty good, and some funny moments mixed in there. But it's 2 hours long and should have been at least 20 minutes shorter. The female love interest is bland and boring, and Salma Hayek is crazy (watch the outtakes). There is fun in there, but it's a bit of a mess. It's worth a viewing, but I was left disappointed because it could have been amazing and it just didn't all come together.

Pretty straight-forward comedy/action movie. The amusement is in the absurdity of the characters.

This movie gave me EVERYTHING I needed from it. These two guys doing these guys' things? Check. Creative and fun action scenes? Check. Ryan and Sam looking good? Oh yeah. It even had a little bit of an interesting story... Not pure gold art, but a fun and (spoiler alert!) profanity filled film! Seriously, a LOT of the F word. Again, that's kinda as I'd expected.

Enjoyed the film's premise as prescribed by its title and most of the stunts during the main men's run-ins with the East European thugs. A little too much of everything as body counts, boat/car/motorcycle chases, soapy romance etc, the main attraction was the banters among the main characters and their unexpected antics. Another good goofy action buddy comedy with Reynolds as "The Nice Guys 2016" with Russel Crowe.

Frightening or Intense Scenes: A scene of torture with one of the main characters.

Violence: There's some rather bloody moments scattered throughout.

Coarse Language: Lots and lots of language. Seems like every other word out of Samuel L. Jackson's mouth is an F-bomb. Sometimes played well to comedic effect.
