A funny movie for adults and older teens.

Throughout the movie, De Niro scowls and looks as if something smells bad -- and something does. It's the script.

What can you say when the best thing about a movie is William Shatner playing himself and parodying his own persona?

...the real problem with Showtime is that, for a comedy, it's not nearly funny enough.

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.

...such an egregious enough example of color-blind, tone-deaf incoherence that it warrants mention even amid the madding crowd of Bruckheimer debacles.

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.

There's surely something wrong with a comedy where the only belly laughs come from the selection of outtakes tacked onto the end credits.
