I was in the room when my brother brought out the movie "The Producers". I thought of what the heck lets take it easy and watch a flick. Before I knew it we were all laughing so hard we were encouraging others to come into the room to see it with us. You don't want to miss "The Producers".

There are more laughs in "The Producers" than any other comedy. Now you will have to take my word for it, unless you take it home and put it in your DVD player. Invite others to join you because once someone gets laughing you will all fall in. "A Laugh a Minute" is what truly describes "The Producers"!

It is a Broadway musical in a movie format. No wait, it is movie with a Broadway theme.

It is the best of both worlds. The intermixing of Hollywood and Broadway stars will have you transfixed. A wonderful romp.

At first i just watched The Producers for Will Ferrell, then Nathan Lance and Matthew Broderick do their thing to music by Mell Gibson. YES. gay dudes, swiss hotties, Nazi musicals. This is a movie to see people. ASAP

Given the reputation which preceded its final arrival at my eye-balls, this was a bit of a disappointment. I hasten to say it was still "good", just not the incredible laugh-fest one expected. Good, yes. Funny, yes. Worth seeing, yes. One of the top five comedies ever made, possibly but not guaranteed. It may improve with a viewing in a crowd. Given this was Brooks' first directing gig, it's impressive; but it suffers from slightly un-even editing. Lee Meredith is not someone I would have thought "hubba-hubba!!" about before now, but I'm glad my view was changed.

Now I wish to see the film adaptation of the stage musical (having not seen the intermediary iteration of this tale).

Uneven black comedy. Fans of Mel Brooks's other films will enjoy it.

This is one of the most fun musicals I have ever seen. It is a scream! The contrast between the two leads makes it all the more interesting. This is a must see for anyone in the mood for a laugh!

Leo Bloom, humble accountant, loses his innocent outlook when he discovers a way to make more money off of a flop play than a hit. Max Byalistock, washed up Broadway king, and Leo work together to create the worst play on all of Broadway; "Springtime for Hilter". Hiring the worst cast, worst director, and worst writers, they set out to guarantee the worst show on Broadway. However they end up in trouble when an unexpected twist occurs: their play becomes a hit!
