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
Something about a…
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.
I skipped this at the time because I don't like DeNiro in comedies. This one he makes a point of playing 95% of it straight, which helps a great deal. If I had to categorise this it'd be as "fun crap". Its a watchable film but its not very good. But that is a big step up on most of DeNiro's comedies, which are just totally unwatchable.

To get an idea on how forgettable Showtime is, it took until about halfway through watching this for me to realise that I'd seen it before. I ran across it while looking for something else and said to myself, "De Niro and Eddie Murphy? Interesting."
Far from interesting, it's actually a snooze. It's pretty much the kick-off of the shitty De Niro era. There was a couple of decent movies, but for the most part, shit.
It also kicked off the lines that the director thought he was so smart for getting him to recite. Those ones that lean of his classic movies and are just shudderingly bad, i.e. "You talkin' to me?!" in a comedy. Horrible.
File under, "Why did I see this?"
I laughed a few times, but it felt overdone and like they were trying too hard for some jokes and situations.
Fast, funny buddy cop action comedy, and probably the last time either of the leads were actually funny, with De Niro exuding some of his Midnight Run persona. More enjoyable than you remember.
just what i was in the mood for
good action movie but we've seen a lot of films like this one...........no big surprise!
I confess, this was a cool down movie to relieve the headache and craziness of Cache. What if this was, like, some sort of prequel to Nightcrawler? And I have no idea how something more like this (Like COPS, but crazier) hasn't made it on television yet. The whole structure of this thing would also be perfect for The Other Guys 2. But of course all the Buddy Cop films have interchangable plots.
Probably more deserving of the 2 star, but I do enjoy these things. Script feels purposefully watered down though, and the ShatMan only had like two scenes.
What happened to Eddie Murphy?
This wasn't great. With the two leads involved, it had the potential to work really well but unfortunately, this comedy is rarely funny and seems to go nowhere.
2 Police officers become unlikely partners in this buddy cop film. This may have never been done before, where two men who are completely different must break through the different barriers between them to save the day and become true partners. Oh wait this has been done before time and time again and this film knows it. The film even references other buddy cop films such as Lethal Weapon, Starsky and Hutch and maybe others as well. This movie started and to be honest I laughed from the beginning. As I was watching it I knew how bad it was but even knowing that I couldn't turn it off. The bright spot of this film is Eddie Murphy's performance for…
This is the list of all the movies I have seen in my lifetime. I have been keeping this list…
Any film that features the making of television as a substantial part of the plot is welcome!
