You can save your money and get a consistency of laughs for free just from watching the five-minute preview. Otherwise, the loosely strung laughs here will keep you in anticipation of more, but you'll be six-feet under before you get the necessary amout of laughs a comedy like this should deliver."Bowfinger" is more of a Steve Martin movie than an Eddie Murphy movie. And despite that, although still lacking since the success if his "The Nutty Professor," Murphy is in much better shape than his last two ("Dr. Dolittle" and "Holy Man"). Not to mention the fact that Martin is funnier than his character from this year's remake of "The Out-of-Towners," right about now you might be wondering what was wrong with the film. Case in point: the script itself (written by Martin). For something with such a funny premise, and funny set-up, and actors who know how to be funny (add to the list Heather Graham, Jamie Kennedy, and Christine Baranski), the script relied too much on individual funny scenes instead of keeping the continuity of humor flowing over the course of the film. Example: while filming a scene in which Kit Ramsey (Murphy) doesn't know he's in, they have a dog wearing high-heels chase after him to make him feel paranoid. He can't see anybody following him, but when the footsteps start up again, he continues to be spooked. But what "Bowfinger" does, is that it wastes its ingenious ideas in the previews, and although there are a few hilarious scenes, it's left feeling like something was missing. Maybe they all lost their mojo from being around Powers' girl Graham?Final Verdict: C-.
