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

...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.

Shatner is probably the funniest person in the film, which gives you an idea just how bad it was.

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 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.

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.

Makes a joke out of car chases for an hour and then gives us half an hour of car chases.

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

As I try to think back to "Showtime" and type up a review, I'm getting a headache.

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.
