After my wife is stressed out with all of life’s dramas, she requested a movie where she wouldn’t  have to think much. Showtime is what we came up with. Not a break through comedy by any means and the formula has been used before with Rush Hour and Beverly Hills Cop and others. Oh well, this movie still has its laughs and is still fun.

Robert DeNiro one of the iconic actors in film history seems to have a new niche with the comedy roles. Playing it straight for other comedians is often funnier than the other comedians themselves. Meet the Parents and Analyze This are a couple of good examples.

William Shatner (Star Trek) was a nice surprise letting the movie make fun of him and his TJ Hooker role. Eddie Murphy was, well, Eddie Murphy and over acted a bit as far as my tastes. But hey, that is what Eddie Murphy does. This is nice, short, no brainer fun.
