While we found it a bit corny in some places. We really enjoyed it a few laughs for a bit of lighthearted fun.

Thought the movies was great. I see a sequel coming. looking forward to it. The kid was great. Russel crowe and ryan gosling were a good matchup i thought. It's not one you want to watch with the kids though.

I wasn't sure I'd remember enough detail for this comment, but after reading through the other comments here... ALL of them have merit - Just don't expect serious or realistic AND they make a great team for buddy humor. I missed the 60's cause I was either building athlete or brain skills - like ALWAYs, and since I'm still catching up the film was just great fill-in (also for my late-bloomer humor). AND I winced at the porn thing because she IS too young for the part- I worried for her as an actress, but perhaps (?) these days, with the relative lack of moral judging within her generation (a good thing, yes?), she doesn't have to worry as much about getting typecast.

This was just awesome. So much fun all the way through. Ryan Gosling is hilarious and the whole movie never misses a beat.

Good goofball buddy-actioner, with a little-too-on-the-nose late '70s setting and maybe miscast (Gosling has fun with the role, but is hard to swallow as a broken-down, hard-boiled private dick) but still highly enjoyable and surprising.

Black comedy action buddy movie well recreated 1970's era. Typical gallows humor of Shane Black's filmmaking career (Lethal Weapon, Predator, Edge).The character of the precocious daughter is a good balance for the two Ne'er-do-well leads.

I am late to this film, tons of quotes already occupied in IMDb:

britprincess's "Marriage is buying a house for someone you hate." is one of my favorite as well.
