Technically Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe don't play cops in "The Nice Guys," by writer-director Shane Black (of "Lethal Weapon" fame).The equation's the same, and like a buddy-cop movie – or a porn film – the important thing isn't the plot.Gosling and Crowe do have chemistry, and an obvious sense of humor which gets them far. They'd have gotten farther if the movie, while at times hilarious, didn't have a nasty edge that simply clashes with the jocular tone. When paunchy, amiably violent enforcer Jackson Healy (Crowe) tracks down sweet, clumsy Holland March (Gosling) in a men's room stall, March is wary.Holly, a Nancy Drew in an R-rated film, keeps falling into peril, either to her life or her moral upbringing (at one point the 13-year-old must watch and discuss porn).
