The Nice Guys is a 2016 neo-noir crime buddy comedy film starring Russell Crowe, Ryan Gosling and Angourie Rice, along with Matt Bomer, Margaret Qualley, Keith David and Kim Basinger.


Despite only being out in theatre for about two weeks[1], the Nice Guys fandom is growing. Fanfiction is being posted to Archive of Our Own[2] and various fanworks are being posted or reblogged on Tumblr. Reviews and reaction posts are fairly common on "The Nice Guys" Tumblr tag. At least one pairing blog on Tumblr has been created[3].

The main ship so far is between the main characters - the two white guys: Holland March/Jackson Healy.
