This comedy, released on DVD this week, tells the tale of a 1970s down on his luck private eye and hired leg-breaker in Los Angeles who have to work together to solve a case of a missing girl. Matters become complicated when they realise there are some dangerous people looking for her too, and a seemingly unrelated porn star is found dead. Crowe and Gosling develop a unique relationship which brings some excellent ‘laugh out loud’ moments interspersed along with more serious scenes.
