The buddy crime picture is a well-worn movie genre, but the right combination of players can still make it seem fresh. Enter THE NICE GUYS with Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling. Writer/director Shane Black is no stranger to the buddy picture – his debut screenplay was 1987’s LETHAL WEAPON. Adam and Josh review Black's latest, and relive the glory days of MANNEQUIN (and LETHAL WEAPON) with their Top 5 Films of '87. Plus, Larsen recommends LAST DAYS IN THE DESERT.
