(mbc.net) LAPD detective Mitch Preston (Robert De Niro) is furious when a media frenzy at a drug lord's hideout allows the suspect to escape.  When cameramen refuse to stop rolling tape, Preston shoots a camera and earns the department a $10 million lawsuit.  The television station is willing to drop the suit however, provided that Mitch agrees to star in their upcoming reality program about policemen. 

Mitch loathes the idea but reluctantly accepts it.  His partner, aspiring actor Trey Sellars (Eddie Murphy), is ecstatic though and seizes the opportunity to launch a film career.  The constant videotaping and an annoying partner guarantee that an explosive situation will ensue.
