A funny movie for adults and older teens.
| Original Score: 4/5
Throughout the movie, De Niro scowls and looks as if something smells bad -- and something does. It's the script.
| Original Score: 2/4
...the real problem with Showtime is that, for a comedy, it's not nearly funny enough.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
Pairing no-nonsense actor Robert De Niro and comedy king Eddie Murphy may have been a clever idea rife with possibilities, but they are working for a creative team that ultimately misses its own point.
| Original Score: 3/5
Shatner is probably the funniest person in the film, which gives you an idea just how bad it was.
| Original Score: D
The uneasy balance of comedy and action -- including a shockingly dumb moment where we're expected to cheer police brutality -- does little justice to either genre.
Murphy is no more capable of portraying an authentic cop than he is of going to the grocery store without a posse of Hollywood hangers-on.
Showtime was right on time. I needed the laugh.
| Original Score: 5/5
Showtime is about as crass and ridiculous as a motion picture can get without having the name Jerry Bruckheimer attached to it
Showtime is closer to Slowtime.
| Original Score: 5/10
The thinness of the conception gives the actors so little room to maneuver that they turn in uniformly one-note performances.
| Original Score: 1/4
...such an egregious enough example of color-blind, tone-deaf incoherence that it warrants mention even amid the madding crowd of Bruckheimer debacles.
É uma pena que, mais tarde, o próprio filme abandone o tom de paródia e passe a utilizar os mesmos clichês que havia satirizado.
Showtime is one of the hapless victims of the arrogant "if we put together a wry white man and a chatty black man and give them guns, the movie will be funny" syndrome.
| Original Score: B
Makes a joke out of car chases for an hour and then gives us half an hour of car chases.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
The very definition of autopilot.
| Original Score: C
There's surely something wrong with a comedy where the only belly laughs come from the selection of outtakes tacked onto the end credits.
| Original Score: 2/5
As I try to think back to "Showtime" and type up a review, I'm getting a headache.
| Original Score: D-
Chalk up another big-name star vehicle that fails to live up to a wealth of potential.
It asks nothing of the audience other than to sit back and enjoy a couple of great actors hamming it up.
| Original Score: 3/4
