WhyIs the Movie Titled ‘The Nice Guys’?
Co-writers Shane Black Anthony Bagarozzi, in conversation with GQ, mentioned that ‘The Nice Guys’ came about because of their love for detective stories. InAnother exclusive interview with Variety, Bagarozzi talked about fooling the audience with an ironic title, as he said, “You know they’re two not-very-nice-guys. One breaks arms forA living and the other cons of old ladies out money. It was literally the worst people that we could think of then trying to make that fun.” Even though the tagline of the movie clearly says, “They’re not that nice,” Healy and Marchy succeed at finding the ‘experimental film’ and keeping it away from Judith, which, even though didn’t win them the case but did do some good by exposing the ‘bad guys’ to the world.
