    Add Showtime to the pile of Hollywood dreck that represents nothing more than the art of the deal. show more

    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    A disgrace to the talents of Robert De Niro and Eddie Murphy, but it's not enough just to say that. It's also a disgrace to the talents of Rene Russo and whoever drove the coffee truck to the set every day. show more

    Mike Clark USA Today

    De Niro's scowl and Murphy's sass are inherently funny, though in this case both actors are forced to call in moviegoers' long-established goodwill. show more

    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    What the movie lacks in coherence it makes up for in zest, well-founded self-delight and a sharpshooter's eye for the absurdities of reality TV. show more

    Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer

    A flat-out cynical attempt to launch a new Lethal Weapon-like franchise. show more

    Jami Bernard New York Daily News

    A lame buddy-cop movie that squanders stars De Niro and Eddie Murphy as it races from one cliche to the next, blithely unconcerned with whether anything parses. show more

    Boston Globe

    Would seem to be surefire casting. The catch is that they're stuck with a script that prevents them from firing on all cylinders. show more

    Chris Kaltenbach Baltimore Sun

    Humorous but much too predictable send-up of reality TV and the sheer banality of it all. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    The movie's funny in the opening scenes and then forgets why it came to play. show more

    Jonathan Foreman New York Post

    It's a wretchedly dumb, lazy and incoherent movie that's magically rendered watchable by Eddie Murphy's charm and Robert De Niro's presence. show more
