After putting together another Broadway flop, down-on-his-luck producer Max Bialystock teams up with timid accountant Leo Bloom in a get-rich-quick scheme to put on the world's worst show.
Review In A Nutshell:
11 years of age, coming home from school with my mother and sister, we pass by a poster of The Producers; on the cover I see Uma Thurman, Nathan Lane, Matthew Broderick, and Will Ferrell in their eye-catching poses, filled with such enthusiasm and fun that something immediately clicked in me, I knew I had to watch this. Sadly, this was a time in my family’s life where we were still trying to find our ground in this new country, hoping to find success and security, finding improvement in me and my sister’s life, and for our future families. This means I couldn’t go and see it at the theatre, and though the months had passed…
Mel Brooks' 1968 original film is my favorite comedy of all time. So it shouldn't be surprising that I found this film incredibly hard to watch without comparing to the original. Especially since it contained most of the exact same dialogue from the original film. There's nothing new here, it's just got new actors and more musical numbers, which somehow made it even worse.
The Producers consists of a strict style of comedy that doesn't fit at all in the 21st century. All of the overdone comedy dialogue and the Broadway-style music sensationalism just doesn't hold over well in a Hollywood film. The decadent musical numbers are really eye-popping, but Broderick and Lane were absolutely terrible. I could see Lane…
The Producers isn't the best film made. Not even close. Not the best musical, not the best Broadway-to-film adaptation. Not nearly the best Mel Brooks movie. It bombed at the box office and got some pretty bad reviews. It has parts that drag on and some of the songs are boring as all hell. It doesn't hold a candle to the 1968 original.
But, for reasons I can’t put words too, I love it. So much! And I don’t know why. I saw it on a whim in a full theater, maybe that did it. There’s a real difference between watching a film alone at home and with sharing with a room full of people. The jokes are funnier, the…
can't believe i just watched Women Are Objects: The Musical just to see only like 20 minutes of mother uma
This was still somewhat fun on a re-watch, but not everything worked for me. Broderick was terrible as Bloom (I believe he was a lot better in the actual musical), the acting itself was too slapstick-ey, the puns and other humor was very hit or miss as well, with a runtime with over 2 hours it was way too long, and most importantly for a musical comedy the songs were very uneven. Strange enough, I thought Will Ferrell was hilarious.
keep it gay
They sing in this one :/ #NotMyLeoBloom
Listen, the tributes and parodies of old musicals in this are so good but I'm just not impressed by all this overly offensive humor.
Anyway, I love Susan Stroman and I love Uma Thurman especially when she's dancing.
"The next stop... Prisoners Of Love on Broadway!"
What a charming film. Whether it is detailing a musical about Adolf Hitler, or showing Uma Thurman's incredible flaunting, The Producers is brilliant.
I love movies like this.
i was talked into watching this by the wife. I was bored to tears and the movie is laughably overacted, but if musicals are your bag then you might find parts of this movie a lot of fun. I don't know hardly anything about the musical genre aside from Disney movies and Rocky Horror, but i even caught myself humming a few of the songs. I'm looking forward to watching the 1967 original, i've been told it's a lot better.
This remake did a very good job of stitching up every place the 1967 version ran thin. It was peculiar how the original film introduced the accountant's strange dependency on his little blue blanket, then never brought it up again. I like how this film made more out of that, going so far as to dress up Ula (Uma Thurman) in a blue dress and figuratively replacing the blanket by entering into a romance with this film's version of the accountant (Matthew Broderick.) The Ula/Accountant relationship, absent from the original, was a really intelligent way of expanding the depth and arcs of both characters. The addition of the accounting office scene and Broderick's running desire to wear a producer's hat…
Will Ferrell's character and the 'unhappy song' are my favorite parts.
Fastuosa, una producción esplendida y todos los involucrados en el elenco funcionan de maravilla, el problema es que esta no parece ser una obra teatral transportada al lenguaje cinematográfico, lo que parece es una obra de teatro grabada, por eso carece de un verdadero impacto, simplemente carece de lenguaje cinematográfico.
Ostentatious, a splendid production and everyone involved in the cast work great, the problem is that this does not appear to be a play transported to film, no, it seems like play recorded, so there's no real impact, simply lacks cinematic language.
the never ending NYC movie list.

Here is what I hope will be an exhaustive list of film remakes.
