Picture from The Producers
Overall D+

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.

The Producers

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?
