Lights. Camera. Aggravation.
A spoof of buddy cop movies where two very different cops are forced to team up on a new reality based T.V. cop show.
Th film starts out pretty funny, being a decent satire of Reality TV and the genre in general, but soon it forgets what it is and becomes a really generic film. The film has some good laughs, but most of it is just boring
Technically I did see this years ago, but damn if I can remember anything about it. Then last night we popped it in after Shaun of the Dead because I figured I'd just fall asleep anyway. But for whatever reason, I stayed up to remind my self how pointless this film is.
They want to spoof buddy cop movies? Ok. But you seem to have forgotten what you were doing by the end. There's a lot of weird editing moments, and just stuff that doesn't need to be there.
Then there's a villain.
Anyway, Eddie Murphy is silly, look at him being so silly! he he he
And Robert DeNiro is a serious cop! ho ho ho

De Niro und Murphy gehen in Ordnung, der Rest ist ein Revier voller Klischees bei einigen Treffern im Gag-Bereich. Gehört nicht weggesperrt, aber auch nicht zum Detective befördert.
Average mix-matched buddy cop comedy with repetitive jokes and dialogue and recycled scenes from Rush Hour.
Probably the last somewhat funny Eddie Murphy; no offence people who like Meet Dave.
Surprising early role from Judah Friedlander (aka Frank Rossitano from 30 Rock)
Love a good buddy cop movie and this ticks all the right boxes for me, Arguments, Actions and most of all Amusement.
Look. This isn't a good movie. It's watchable. It has its moments, but it's not good. And it suffers from the unforgivable crime that was so so prevalent in the late 90s early 2000s, and that's the whole commentary on reality TV and how it's not really reality, but produced by slicksters and fame hungry wanna be's, blah blah blah. Snooze. I hate reality TV too but I might hate the genre of "mocking" it even more.
Anyway, I can forgive the two leads. My heart goes out to them because they are being the things we want them to be, and we just didn't bite. It's no surprise Eddie Murphy is a humorless grump these days. He's tried repeatedly…
Nota = 6,5
De Niro, why don't you just retire? You are rich and famous, you don't need it.
I had this one protected by nostalgia, I really like back when i saw it. Now with critical eyes I can say that laks in some parts of humor. and theres a lot of uncoherence in the editing. But still.. really like and have fun with it. Guilty pleasure film for me.
I wish Robert DeNiro would have stopped with the buddy action/comedy movie with Midnight Run. Every single one of them since has just gotten worse and worse.
Showtime is nothing more than a cliched attempt to spoof buddy-cop films whose mediocrity can't be outweighed even by the charisma and chemistry of its leads.
You can probably tell what it's all about from the poster alone, right? Eddie Murphy plays Eddie Murphy in a blue uniform, a character whose sole purpose is to be the silly, random black guy. Paired up with De Niro's hard-ass, no-nonsense detective who loathes his partner, they go around town solving crimes and shooting bad guys while being followed by cameras for some kind of reality show, I guess? The plot is all over the place, and it's made even worse by an overdose of poor editing.
I wouldn't recommend this to anyone,…
Weak plot and overall a pretty cliche buddy cop film, but I still like dusting this one off every once in a while. I miss Eddie Murphy being in movies!
