I finally saw this last night and your review really nails it. It's puzzling that Shane Black didn't do much with LA, since he did a good job with the city in his previous, and similar, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang. The unanswered question: Who directs Gene Hackman and Ryan O'Neal back in the 1970s? My first thought was Michael Ritchie, but I bet there's someone who'd get the buddy comedy aspect better.

wwolfe, it is a lot of fun, isn't it? Here in Mannionville it's agreed among our team of critics that Gosling was nominated for an Oscar for the wrong movie.

Ritchie would have been a good choice. I'm thinking Bogdanavich. But also Hal Ashby. Or George Roy Hill.
