Movie Review: The Producers

Sunday, May 21, 2006
We rented The Producers the other night. The Producers is Mel Brooks's re-adaptation of his movie-turned-broadway show.

To start with, the movie is absolutely hysterical. It's rated PG-13 for "sexual humor and references", and that's pretty much where the humor comes from... that and the sheer ridiculousness of the plot. Here's how it goes: a failed Broadway producer and his accountant figure out a scheme wherein they can make more money with a flop than with an actual hit. So they set out to find the worst play, the worst director, and the worst actors - all while raising as much money as they can.

My personal biggest laugh comes from the play they choose to produce: "Springtime for Hitler". Some of the jokes seem a little forced, some of them aren't that funny, but the fact that they keep coming is really how the movie succeeds. The movie never takes itself seriously, which is also a blessing. I find little to complain about with the film and plenty to praise.

Final word on The Producers: Rent it, laugh, have fun.
