May just be Eddie Murphy's last film he'll ever shine in comedy. Bowfinger is a remembrance of all his greatest films being the last in the list. Watch if you must.

Bowfinger is a hilarious comedy with Steve Martin and Eddie Murphy. The movie is a satire of the
movie industry and is a very underrated comedy. Martin and Murphy are brilliant together, they
should make more comedies together, A+.

At some point Eddie Murphy decided that playing just one role in a movie wasn't enough for him and not once has his multiple performances ever lead to an even remotely funny film.

Add into the mix Steve Martin, who's last decent film was probably Father of the Bride (1991), and you are left with a 97 minute movie that has arguably two or three funny moments throughout its entire running time. The fact that is has garnered mostly positive reviews still baffles me. Expand

A near-perfect comedy that could only bit a little funnier but still contains some of the funniest moments in comedy films. Great idea, cast, script and execution. Frank Oz has made some really special movies. Bowfinger is one of his best.

Enjoyable to watch, but it is farce all the way through. And you get the sense that the filmmakers were so dumb they didn't even understand that it was farce they were making. It wasn't a particularly "bad" movie, but it was thin Enjoyable to watch, but it is farce all the way through.

It wasn't a particularly "bad" movie, but it was thin and pathetic, and seemed to take no effort or filmmaking skill to make. Collapse

Truly, one of the best "struggling to make a movie" movie ever. Eddie Murphy's hilarious double performance and Steve Martin's brilliant comedic timings serve this film very well. Excellent soundtrack too.
