The Producers is a wonderful elegy for a certain kind of comic sensibility.
August 2, 2007
The original was far funnier and somehow managed to cut to the chase with less of a song and dance.

Be prepared to laugh from the opening credits through the closing credits.

The play is everything in this uneven movie, which is alternately groan-inducing and side-splitting.

Confirmed my original opinion that the musical version of The Producers was a flash-in-the-pan success that won't be remembered ten years from now.

Director Stroman (who also choreographed the film) has also paid tribute to the theatre by casting such stage stars as Brent Barrett, Debra Monk, Karen Ziemba and Andrea Martin.

The real reason to see this film is the addition of the musical numbers -- catchy and clever songs, written in the style of classic 1950s Broadway musicals.

Stage director Susan Stroman brings it all in, including the high spirits and naughty fun, though a few more dancers in some of the musical numbers might have filled the screen better.

Shows such affinity for the stage that it barely qualifies as a movie.

Is it better than the stage version? Not necessarily. But this is a faithful rendition that should succeed in bringing a delightful old-fashioned crowd-pleaser to a new audience.

This is extraneous for anyone who's seen the original film or show, presumably leaving everyone else to wonder what all the fuss has been about.
January 24, 2006
Arguably the funniest movie of the year.

It's a broad, slightly naughty comedy in musical form from the skewed, if not a little twisted, comic genius Mel Brooks.
| Original Score: 3.5/4
January 17, 2006
Barely adequate.
January 15, 2006
Not great, but still funnier than most other comedies released in 2005.

Bad taste can sometimes be fun (check out the Warhol films), but when it's not it turns out to be just plain irritating like this version of The Producers.

A shrill and grating production ... watching it is rather like trying on a never ending series of hair shirts.

Laugh til' you drop - the musical version of The Producers is finally here. When Mel Brooks conceived his comedy satire, the subject matter of ridiculing Hitler was brave to say the least. And nearly 40 years later, it still leaves bite marks.
January 10, 2006
Little more than the show audiences paid to see in New York.
| Original Score: 3/4
