Bad: 'Showtime' (2002)

Anyone wondering what De Niro looks like when he can't even bring himself to pretend to care about a part? Look no further than this buddy-cop movie that pairs him with Eddie Murphy, in which the actor plays a veteran detective who gets paired with the comedian's fame-seeking hotshot for a reality show. The film's sole clever bit involves bringing in William Shatner, as himself, to help teach De Niro's character how to act. It might have been funnier if Shatner didn't seem far more engaged with the material than his co-star. KP
