Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the movie, Eddie Murphy's character is trying out for the cop show. While arguing with the man trying out as chief, Eddie Murphy slams his hands on the table. When he does this, and throughout the scene, his gun holster and shoulder straps are clearly visible. But after he slams his hands down, and the camera cuts to the directors of the show and then back to Eddie, the holster is gone. The camera then cuts back to the directors and then to Eddie a second time, and the holster is back.
When LAPD detective Mitch Preston (Robert de Niro) shoots a news camera during a bust, the police chief orders him to work on a reality cop show, "Showtime" with LAPD Officer Trey Sellars (Eddie Murphy). The show is run by producer Chase Renzi (Rene Russo). Mitch and Trey are totally opposite and do not work well together at first.
Their first case is about a huge gun that can destroy a house. The TV show is a hit.
Trey Sellars: Are you thinking what I'm thinking?
Detective Mitch Preston: I doubt it.
