Dragnet is a 1987 American buddy cop comedy film written and directed by Tom Mankiewicz in his directorial debut, and starring Dan Aykroyd and Tom Hanks. The film is based on the television crime drama of the same name starring Jack Webb. The screenplay was written by Dan Aykroyd and Alan Zweibel. The original music score by Ira Newborn.
Is he a Beverly Hills cop or a Hollywood cop (Eddie Murphy)? He and Robert DeNiro play bad boys coupled for a reality show where cameras ride along. Murphy grooves to the surreality of TV reality, while DeNiro thinks somebody should analyze it.
Whoever casted for Showtime should be shot. I think the movie had a decent change except for the pairing of Robert De Niro and Eddie Murphy. By themselves, they are funny and can carry a movie. Unfortunately, the chemistry was way off between them in this movie. It never elevated to the next level. It had some decent moments but overall, it was just OK.
