Remake of the classic Mel Brooks comedy, starring Nathan Lane and Matthew Broderick as Max Bialystock and Leo Bloom, a scheming theatrical producer and his mousy assistant. The producers hit upon the perfect plan to embezzle a fortune: raise far more money than you need to produce a sure-fire Broadway flop and then (since no one will expect anything back) Max and Leo can pocket the difference. To do this, they need the ultimate bad play, which they find in the musical 'Springtime for Hitler'. But their plans come to naught and the duo are taken completely by surprise when their new production is hailed as a toast-of-the-town hit.

Although I have never seen the stage musical that this is based on, or the film that is based on for that matter, I do really like the film. The Producers has Broadway producer Max Bialystock and bored accountant Leopold Bloom team up to make millions by putting on the worst show the world has ever seen but things inevitably go wrong.

Nathan Lane and Matthew Broderick take the lead roles that they had in the stage version and produce a great performance in the film, although at it does seem that it takes a while for them to get into their roles for some reason but once the film gets going you should start to enjoy their performance. Uma Thurman is brilliant and beautiful as always and although I am not that much of a Will Ferrell fan I must say that he dose give a brilliant performance. I also laughed out loud when I noticed John Barrowman (Captain Jack Harkness from Doctor Who and Torchwood) as the lead tenor in the `Springtime for Hitler' musical. I can understand why fans of the original would dislike the film but I must say that I for one really enjoy it.

The remake of The Producers isn't quite the catastrophe it's been painted, though it's still a long way from a success. Some of its problems can be traced to the stage show - Mel Brooks' musical score is still thin despite much improved orchestration and, though toned down from his deeply irritating stage performance, Matthew Broderick misjudges things quite badly more often than not, while there's no excuse for flattening 'Springtime For Hitler' by padding it out to three times its length (indeed, this remake clocks in at three-quarters of an hour longer than the original). Some problems are unique to the film version: certainly if you're one of the many wondering why some people find Will Ferrell funny, you'll find no answer here in his terrible performance, while cutting the 'King of Broadway' number (to be found among the deleted scenes on the DVD) seems a misjudgement as it's one of the funnier and better staged numbers.

Nathan Lane does well enough as Bialystock, although he's given a little too much rope to be at his best, Uma Thurman is better than expected and even Susan Strohman's direction isn't as bad as it's been made out, far more cinematic than her critics claim although it doesn't entirely escape the feeling that the only reason there isn't a fourth wall on screen is because there wasn't one in the theatre. Still, the 'I Want to Be a Producer' production number is an impressive throwback to some of the lesser MGM musicals, and the theatricality of 'That Face' works surprisingly well. It's certainly better than the screen versions of many Broadway musicals churned out in the 60s or 70s, but the tighter-paced and much better scripted original needn't worry about it stealing its thunder.

Decent extras include 19 minutes of deleted scenes, a 15-minute blooper reel and short about the 'I Want to be a Producer' number, though Susan Strohman's commentary doesn't exactly command your attention.

Max Bialystock (Nathan Lane) did it again. Yep his plays are flops. Leo Bloom (Matthew Broderick) accountant inadvertently suggests that one can make a mint by selling more than 100% of a flop production. This sets Max in motion to produce the floppiest play yet.
Will their scheme succeed?

Well ever since his successes in his youth Matthew Broderick has had a string of mediocre movies. The string has finally broken with this less than mediocre production. One plus is that they did not try to mimic the original film. The addition of several new musical pieces and keeping "Springtime for Hitler" shows a great effort at creativity while retaining the essence of the story. However the musical pieces were more vulgar than funny and relied of base language and gestures than on skill or relevancy.

There were some good actors such as Hilda the wrong way pigeon. And Uma looked like she had fun in this one. However most of the actors including Matthew Broderick looked like they were just walking through.

a better Uma movie Gattaca [Blu-ray][1998] [US Import] [1997] [Region A]

Being a projectionist I see a lot of bad films! but The Producers was one of 2005 greatest next to Kong and Narnia. I was already a huge fan of the original and the Stage version but when I read Principle photography has begun on the new musical film of The Producers I was counting down the days!
As I was putting the film in the projector for my own little screening I was hoping it was going to meet my expectations and it did! Its everything it should be, Nathan Lane is fantastic pouring so much energy into his performance as do the rest of the cast. The musical numbers are brilliant especially "I wanna be a Producer" and Betrayed".
It is a shame that "The King of Broadway" and "Where did we go Right?" songs where cut but this was obviously due to running time issues. All in all The Producers is a fantastic film. If you see it and don’t find it entertaining in any way, I urge you to SEEK HELP! Or in the words of the last song , “If you think it stinks keep your big mouth shut!”

It was cheap. I was curious - I loved the original. It was awful. Switched off after ten minutes - kept the box binned the disc. Please do not waste your money or your time - if I manage to save one other person from purchasing this at least that will be something positive from the whole sorry experience. Would like to award it no stars at all. Mike Pearce.
