Storyline Heading
Two men scheme together to embezzle a fortune from investors by producing a flop instead of a hit show, then skip town with the cash. But their play is not taken seriously and it becomes a hit. At first, the audience is horrified by Springtime for Hitler, but once the leading man appears as a fey Hitler, they realize that this is not a show they should take seriously and begin to eat it up. When their surefire flop is hailed as a hit, the partners have a serious disagreement about what to do next.

DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Musical Comedy - This is a silly musical comedy for those looking for a film that does not take itself seriously at all. There is a bit of raunchy and politically incorrect humor, so sensitive viewers may be offended. But it's a light entertainer for an adult audience, particularly those interested in old-fashioned musicals.

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Average Generally speaking, I am a fan of movie musicals, but this one fails on too many levels to make it worthwhile. Despite the overacting and the zealous attempts of stars Lane and Broderick to channel Zero Mostel and Gene Wilder (who played their parts in the original), there is no energy.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good It was fun, it was funny, it was alive, although the color palate seemed to have darker colors and I remember the original as a movie made from golds and yellows and browns.

USA Today Full Review
Above Average The play may have won a dozen Tonys, but don't expect a repeat performance at the Oscars.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 58 moviegoers: Great Reviews! Approximately three-quarters of all moviegoers rated "The Producers" "Very Good" or higher. This indicates they enjoyed it very much. The remaining quarter was mixed. Some groups (young females) rated it "Good," which indicates an OK/average movie. The adults in this last quarter, both male and female didn't care much for "The Producers" at all and several even hated it.

Since so many really enjoyed "The Producers" I have no problem recommending it. Just keep in mind that it's a musical and it has some gay characters. These were the main negative comments made.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
It's 1959, and Broadway is buzzing with some of the theater world's biggest names. Producer Max Bialystock (Nathan Lane), however, is no longer one of them. One day, mousy accountant Leo Bloom (Matthew Broderick) shows up at Bialystock's office to do his books and innocently remarks that, under the right circumstances, a dishonest man could make more money producing a flop than a hit show. Immediately, a light bulb goes off in Bialystock's head, and he tries to persuade the reluctant Bloom to join him in his perfect plan to embezzle a fortune by producing a sure-fire Broadway misfire and then skip town with the cash. Unsure, Bloom returns to his dismal job and fantasizes about a much more glamorous life. Deciding he's had enough, he seizes the day and becomes Bialystock's partner in crime.

Searching for the ultimate bad play, Max and Leo discover "the mother lode,” a musical entitled Springtime for Hitler—A Gay Romp with Adolf and Eva in Berchesgarten. They decide to pay the playwright, Franz Liebkind (Will Ferrell), a visit on his Greenwich Village rooftop.
