Average Rating: 3 stars out of 5.
The Producers
Max Bialystock was once the king of Broadway, but now he only seems to be able to produce flops. Things turn around for Max when he's visited by the neurotic accountant Leo Bloom, who proposes a scheme tailor-made for producers who can only make flops: raise far more money than you need, then make sure the show is despised. No one will be interested in it, so you can pocket the surplus. With this in mind, they decide to produce a musical called 'Springtime for Hitler' written by escaped Nazi Franz Liebken. Then they get the insanely flamboyant Roger De Bris to direct and hire the loopy Swedish bombsheel Ulla as the lead actress.

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.

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!
