It's not a bad spoof, coming straight off the stage by the look of the direction. Got a few good laughs and Zero Mostel - worth to just see him again.
In my opinion, one of the best films of all time! Not too long, not too short, just right! This film will have you laughing all the way through, and this is Mel Brooks, Gene Wilder and Zero Mostel at their best! This is a must see!
Less "off the wall" comedy then some other Brooks offerings such as 'Blazing Saddles'. Enjoyable performances from lead cast without too much hamminess, made for entertaining viewing with a few laugh out loud moments.
Produced by Mal Brookes, with music and lyrics also by Mal Brookes. I really liked the closing credits - they just didn't come soon enough though.
Ok Mel Brooks fare. Plenty of slightly risque Gay/Jew/Nazi humor. Nevertheless it's a bit hard to recommend this one for veiwing over the recent movie adaptation of the stageplay adaptation of this movie (...ahem). The technical qualities of the later movie are much better. But if you're not into musicals, the earlier film may be more suited (plus Zero Mostel's performance is very good and resonably different to Nathan Lane's)
Shorter but sharper than the remake. A true classic, and always will be!!!
If you like Mel Brooks warped sense of humor you'll like 'The Producers'. Gene Wildman is at his best.
One of Mel Brookes best. Worth a watch.
Very silly, but funny when you open your mind to the year this movie was set
A little dated, but the script was good, and so was the acting. A little slow to warm up, but you are rewarded for your patience. It was hilarious.
Fun if you like slapstick.
Quirky, funny and worth a watch. Easy story to follow which only means you'll see the ending coming a mile off. Well we did! Satman.
Hysterical characters and rampant emotions set the scene for this unlikely story. Mel Brooks at his original best if this style of humour appeals its a winner
