The Nice Guys (2016)

Updated: Apr 27, 2022

In 1970s Los Angeles, a mismatched pair of private eyes investigate a missing girl and the mysterious death of a porn star.

In the elevator scene, the same music plays in the background as in the elevator scene in The Blues Brothers. The song is called The Girl From Ipanema.

Holland March: Munich.
Holland March: Guy without his balls. A Munich.
Jackson Healy: Munich, is a city in Germany, Munich. München.
Holland March: You sure?
Jackson Healy: My dad was stationed there.
Holland March: Right. Hitler only had one ball.
