**½
Director: Tom Dey
Cast: Robert De Niro, Eddie Murphy, Rene Russo, Pedro Damian, Mos Def, William Shatner

A heavy-handed media satire about a decorated detective and a second rate police officer/actor wannabe who are teamed up for a “reality” TV show. There are some funny bits in the first half (William Shatner teaches Robert De Niro how to act) but then it begins to take itself too seriously. However, the film is not as smart as it thinks it is at any point.
