The Not-so-lukewarm Response to The Nice Guys on Streaming Platforms

Shane Black’s iconic 2016 action-comedy, The Nice Guys, featuring industry stalwarts Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling, swept through the Internet eight years post its release. Initially, the film’s unique brand struggled to garner attention due to a box office clash with high brand recognition films like Marvel Studios’ Captain America: Civil War, X-Men: Apocalypse, Angry Birds, and Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising. Nevertheless, its release on streaming platforms provided a much-needed platform for the film to shine, with the audience enthralled by the engaging noir comedy and dynamic chemistry between Crowe and Gosling.


Fan Demand Indicates a Potential Sequel

Fervent movie enthusiasts took to social media platforms to voice their demand for a sequel. Basking in the brilliance of Crowe and Gosling’s performances, various tweets and posts urged the director and the stars to consider a sequel. While the film had a tepid reception during its release, the current wave of fans heralds The Nice Guys as a highly underrated comedy caper. This agrees to the earlier critics’ positive reviews on the film, especially applauding the humor and the on-screen chemistry of the leading stars.


Crowe and Gosling Showcase Keen Interest for a Sequel

In a hopeful sign for fans, both Crowe and Gosling conveyed their keen interest in reprising their roles if a sequel is greenlit. During a recent KFC Radio podcast, Crowe who enacted private eye detective Holland March in the film, revealed an intriguing sequel title jointly created with Gosling. The stunning duo plans to name the sequel ‘Nice Guys: The Mexican Detectives’. Ryan Gosling, with the recent success of Barbie, has the necessary wherewithal to turn the sequel dream into reality.


Shane Black’s Perspective and The Initial Plan

The ace director, Shane Black, is no stranger to the sequel conjecture. In an interview with Slash Film, Black shared that The Nice Guys was originally conceived as a TV show. However, due to the dearth of interested buyers, the team had to alter the plot and timelines, eventually molding it into a feature film. Through his interviews, Black also reflected on the joyous experience of filming with Crowe and Gosling, highlighting their humorous interactions on the set.

The escalating fan demand, combined with the leading stars and director’s keen interest, can potentially nudge the producers towards considering a sequel. With a successful streaming run that more than made up for the box office fallout, The Nice Guys is ripe for a sequel. Ryan Gosling’s soaring popularity could play a key role in turning this possibility into reality.

The Nice Guys, offering an exciting mix of noir whimsicality and humorous camaraderie, remains available to stream on Netflix and has indeed found its cult following online, eight years after its release.
