Bowfinger bears the same relation to satire as reports of the weekend grosses do to journalism.

Powered by a hilarious, high-octane performance by Eddie Murphy and a witty, boisterous script by his co-star, Steve Martin, Bowfinger offers 90-plus minutes of solid entertainment.

Martin may express himself more gracefully than Bobby Bowfinger does, but the two share a certain quality of vagueness or absence that has plagued Martin's entire career as an actor and writer.

After a decade in the wilderness, it's good to know that Martin can still cut it with the likes of Jim Carrey and Mike Myers.

Bowfinger manages to be funny without a single semen or shit joke or scene in which a character has carnal relations with a dessert.

With its highly original, clever and well-paced script, Bowfinger scams edgy but light-hearted laughs from 'Action!' to wrap.

Martin, who wrote the screenplay, gives Murphy the creative space to strut his stuff.

Bitingly funny but tolerant, bemused rather than bitter!

The movie has some very funny moments but is oddly low-key, from its slow set-up of the premise to its lack of follow-through on some of the comic possibilities.
