The most entertaining part of Christian Taylor's "Showboy" is deciphering fact from fiction... and that's not a compliment.

April 8, 2004
A no-budget vanity production that almost instantly wears out its welcome.

An ill-conceived, often implausible hybrid of fact and fiction.
May 5, 2004
This would-be satire isn't funny enough to be entertaining, nor is it clever enough to fool us.
June 13, 2004
plays for laughs extremely well, though it's all dry as the Las Vegas air
| Original Score: 4/5
April 15, 2004
A clever hide-and-seek game of reality versus fiction that reveals itself as not the movie you thought it was when the final credits roll.

Made all the more fascinating by keeping a small and twisted foot in a bizarre reality befitting the glitz and glamour of show business.
April 29, 2004
To their credit, the filmmakers don't repair their hero's aching heart, but they do grant him a brief moment in the Vegas spotlight, surely all that any chorus boy (or girl) could ask.

Taylor, while perhaps a little small to become a real Vegas showboy, makes for a very charismatic hero, while Joaquin Baca-Asay's cinematography captures all the glitz and slightly tawdry glamour of the Vegas strip.

Showboy is enjoyable if you're comfortable with the mix of fact and fiction and don't care what's true and what's not.

Slyly amusing yet poignant.

Silly only begins to describe this, but along the way, bitter truths are revealed and some real laughs delivered.
