Showtime
LAPD detective Mitch Preston never wanted to be anything but a cop. Ditto for Preston's new partner, patrolman Trey Sellars. He always wanted to be a cop.. on TV.

Showtime is fun time, an action/comedy romp directed by Tom Dey (Shanghai Noon) and featuring the first pairing of movie megastars Robert De Niro and Eddie Murphy. De Niro, wearing a slow-burning scowl like a badge, plays Mitch, a cop's cop forced by his superiors to be the focus of a reality-TV series.

Murphy plays Trey, a camera-ready officer more eager to hit his mark than hit the streets. Backed by a ratings-obsessed producer (Rene Russo) and coached in the finer points of TV copdom by a veteran star (William Shatner, spoofing his T.J. Hooker), Mitch and Trey become America's favourite buddy cops. But reel life soon gives way to the real. A brutal crimelord must be stopped -- and that's where the shrapnel hits the fan.

92 minutes, No persons under 13 (Language, Violence).
