As close to a perfect piece of satire as filmmakers have seen in quite some time.
80
Has it's share of downtime.
63
Certainly pleasant, but it's also a bit safe.
76
Savy script... terrific performances... [yet] the movie's herky jerky pacing may leave you wanting.
75
Bowfinger's terrific set-pieces... more than make up for the odd weak moment or thin performance.
100
Spoofy and sweet... endearingly old-fashioned.
83
Offers a lot of laughs, a heartwarming core.
90
Inspired funny business that allows Martin to hilariously torpedo Hollywood's corrupt heart.
100
Perhaps the funniest movie for grownups so far this year.
95
One of the funniest films of the year... enough laugh-out-loud moments.
75
Aside from the "Nutty Professor," this is the funniest Murphy comedy since the Reagan Administration.
