Ishtar is a failure on practically every level from its misguided narrative to its lack of humor to the absence of anything remotely entertaining.

A failed attempt at doing a modern Bob Hope-Bing Crosby "Road" picture.

The performances are endearing enough, the pacing is actually quite crisp and there is no shortage of zany silliness in the story. It just never gels.

The intentionally bad songs and the early scenes in New York City are amusing, but the movie totally falls apart once Beatty and Hoffman arrive in the fictional country of Ishtar.

The real joke is that everyone involved is still in the movie business.
