Audience Reviews for Nice Guys (High Hopes)
To be honest I am surprised that this film has not been more successful or advertised more because it is full of star power and much more clever and fun than I thought it would be.
Plot: Recently dumped by his actress girlfriend, Tom Murphy (Corin Nemec) is a struggling actor who is desperate to get a role in the new James Bond Flick starring Sean Connery and find a way to finance his friend Ben`s movie.
The guys had a surefire plan: by getting Tom's famous girlfriend to star in their latest production, they were sure to get noticed by the Hollywood bigwigs. Trouble is, Tom has just been dumped, and as a result the film has lost its one shining star and their hopes of making it big in the industry are dashed.
They resort to Plan B when Tom`s roommate Quebert (Jason Mewes) discovers that his `weed connect` Rocko (Michael DeLorenzo) has a briefcase full of stolen government marijuana. The friends hatch an elaborate plan to steal it and collect the reward money. Meanwhile Ben (David Faustino of Married with Children) has been saddled with babysitting his girlfriend`s brother Wendell (Jason Marsden) who is in a drooling, semi catatonic state as a result of a clinical drug trial gone wrong.
What I liked: the satire behind the line ~I am a producer~ as a seemingly surefire way to pick up chicks and Jason Newes hitting on the girl at the bar.
A Danny Trejo production and he also appears in the film.
