When a celebrity homicide detective and a brash, young fire marshal race against time to stop a pair of publicity seeking murderers, a high-profile newscaster buys videotapes of the gruesome crimes--turning the killers into instant media stars. Now, just how far will society's most desperate people go in order to get their 15 Minutes of fame? Starring Academy Award and Golden Globe-winner Robert De Niro ("The Godfather, Part II," "Taxi Driver"), Edward Burns ("Saving Private Ryan," "Shes the One"), and Golden Globe and Emmy Award-winner Kelsey Grammer ("X Men: The Last Stand," TV's "Frasier").
Ratings and Reviews

Critics Consensus: As critical as it is about sensationalism in the media, 15 Minutes itself indulges in lurid violence, and its satire is too heavy-handed to be effective.
Exceptionally violent, intense DeNiro thriller.
