This would-be satire isn't funny enough to be entertaining, nor is it clever enough to fool us.

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.

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.

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.

A no-budget vanity production that almost instantly wears out its welcome.

An ill-conceived, often implausible hybrid of fact and fiction.
