Nathan Lane and Matthew Broderick return to their award-winning roles in the hilariously funny film of the Broadway smash hit. Scheming producer Max Bialystock (Lane) and his mousy accountant, Leo Bloom (Broderick), discover that under the right circumstances they could make more money by producing a Broadway flop than they could with a hit. But what will they do when their sure-to-offend musical becomes a surprise sensation? Co-staring sexy Uma Thurman and comedy genius Will Ferrell, The Producers is a fun-filled, side-splitting comedy.

Trivia: The song "You'll Find Your Happiness In Rio" was written for the Broadway musical as part of an extended sequence that was dropped in favor of the song "Betrayed". (more)

Goofs: Errors made by characters (possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): During the jail song and dance scene, the prisoner in the white shirt (singlet) standing behind the piano lip sync's almost every word when the statement from the Governor is read out aloud. (more)

Leo Bloom: Max, I think we're getting in too deep.
