Source of story An original screenplay
Elevator Pitch Why are the participants in a porn movie being murdered leaving one young woman on the run with two private detectives, the eponimous nice guys, and a host of bad guys chasing her? How is it that the mother of a porn actress has seen her two days after her funeral? Well, this is LA in the 1970s!
Content Lots of violence with fists, handguns and machine guns. In fact there is quite a body count and quite a lot of female semi-nudity, particularly at the various parties in luxury dwellings on the heights above LA.
A View Had I been a more knowledgeable film critic I would have known that Shane Black had been the author of Lethal Weapon 1 and II and therefore would have known what to expect. I thought it was a lot of fun and worth the entry price.
