Still shot from the movie: The Producers.

The Producers

Based on the Broadway hit, Nathan Lane and Matthew Broderick play sleazy musical producers who try to bamboozle their backers out of millions of dollars. Their perfectly choreographed plan works great until the flop they were banking on accidentally turns into a sensation. Get the movie review and more. »

How We Determine Our Grades

After watching a movie with your children or students, we encourage parents and teachers to look for education opportunities to teach with movies. Here are a few discussion topics that can help with lesson plans or teaching in the home.

The script makes fun of numerous stereotypes including homosexuals, the elderly and foreigners. Does presenting this material in a tongue-in-cheek manner make it an acceptable laughing mater?

Do Max and Leo learn anything from their failed attempt at producing a play? What consequences result from their actions? Are there any signs of reformation?
