There's a song in the stage musical version of 'The Producers' that, if you flipped the title to pose the opposite question, could summarize the letdown diehard fans will feel if they catch the new movie of Mel Brooks' gloriously retro Broadway smash.
As creaky as the traditional musicals it once poked fun at, The Producers has been entombed -- lox, shtick and two smoking bagels -- as a theatrical fossil, and reinforces the danger in returning to the same material one time too many.
It may be that as audiences queue up for this latest incarnation of Brooks' undying brainchild - - not unlike the patrons who turn back to their seats, mid-exit, during the opening-night performance of Springtime for Hitler - - the joke is on them.
