lots of action, occasionally funny but the story lacked credibility even in the context of a comedy
on 18 May 2008
Robert de Niro was very good in this film playing a serious-minded diligent policeman who gets teamed up for a reality tv show with Eddie Murphy who plays another cop who is loud and unsubtle, but the contrast between the two of them - which is supposed to be a a main feature of the story - didn't work that well and their coupling and the plot as a whole seemed contrived and unlikely even in the context of a comedy.There was lots of action in Showtime and some funny moments but overall it was a very average movie.
