Full synopsis »
The Producers is a film that tries to go the extra mile yet comes up a bit short. Every musical number and every joke is big, over the top and I guess that's how it's supposed to be because the play I'm sure is very much the same. And that is where the problem lies. The movie attempts to duplicate the same physical comedy found in the play, one of the most successful Broadway plays ever. However, what works on stage does not necessarily work on screen. Every sequence of this film is clever, even likeable, but the flare and humor found on the stage just does not come through. I laughed in a few parts, but it was the kind of laugh that people give when something is on the fringe of being funny, almost a gentle nudge saying ‘that's almost funny enough, just go a little further.' Unfortunately, most of the times it doesn't. Full movie review »
