Get Our Full Review


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 is rated PG-13 for sexual humor and references

Here is additional information on sex, violence and profanity in The Producers...

This lively musical production offers plenty of upbeat tunes. Unfortunately, the lyrics contain numerous lines of sexual innuendo and the characters openly discuss and joke about sexual topics. There are also exaggerated portrayals of homosexual characters. In addition to sexual depictions, the script satirically lampoons stereotypical characters, making fun of minorities, body shapes and morality in a manner that may be difficult for children to understand. Slaps, punches and kicks to the groin are also part of the comedic action along with crude hand gestures.
