I enjoyed every second of this movie. I laughed harder than I have at any movie in a long time. But it could've been soooooooo much better. It seems the director, who also directed the Broadway show, was content to not change much of anything and simply give us the Broadway show on the screen. If you haven't seen the show, you'll probably enjoy this movie more, but you'll notice how Broderick and Lane are acting for the stage and not for the screen, and you'll notice how bad the sets look. Movie musicals are mounting a comeback, but it's too bad they can't all be as brilliant as "Chicago" or "Moulin Rouge". Still, "The Producers" is good fun with plenty of show-stopping numbers and huge laughs. It's just not something that begs to be seen on the big screen. Do yourself a favor - buy the soundtrack, then rent the movie and sing along in the privacy of your own home. ** out of four.

No springtime for this remake of the broadway hit, which came from the much better 1968 film. The only difference between the 1968 version and the 2005 version that there are more singing and dancing. that may be the problem with the film. there is too many singing and dancing for me to care about the main characters. Another problem is the movie lack humor, thus giving us homophobic characters and grannies in walkers The ending is a mess with more singing and dancing. Mel Brooks should have gotton himself personal involved in this movie.Everything is lost between the Broadway version and the screen version. I didn't see the broadway version of "the Producers," so I don't know what got lost in the traslation. As for me, i'd rather sit though the much better 1968 version.
