Robert De Niro and Eddie Murphy star in this story of a no-nonsense L.A.P.D. detective forced by department boss to team up with a brash actor wannabe on a new reality-based TV Show. When patrol officer Trey Sellars (Murphy) stumbles into an undercover operation by detective Mitch Preston (De Niro), he blows months of work to nail a drug gang. And when a TV news crew barges in with lights blazing, Mitch's temper explodes. It may be a police fiasco, but it's a ratings bonanza. Now, network executive Chase Renzi (Rene Russo) wants to star the two in a series--Sellars' dream come true and Preston's worst nightmare. They may be at each other's throats in this spoof of buddy cop movies, but right now it's Showtime.

Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: Showtime starts out as a promising satire of the buddy cop genre. Unfortunately, it ends up becoming the type of movies it is satirizing.
