THE NICE GUYS is an action comedy drama, set in Los Angeles in 1977, in which a private investigator and an unlicensed enforcer uncover a conspiracy when they team up to trace a missing young woman.

Violence

Scenes of strong violence include shootings, crunchy punches, the deliberate breaking of an arm, and a character being strangled to death. There is also a large blood splat when a character hits the ground after falling from a tall window.

Sex

There are references to pornographic films, 'anal' and 'rimming'. In one scene a character visits a sex shop and in another a character reads a soft-core porn magazine that includes a picture of a naked female model.

Language

There is strong language ('f**k', 'motherf**ker') throughout.

Other issues include nudity, drug references, and a brief scene of cannabis joint smoking.
