The Producers (2005)
- December 16, 2005
DVD: May 16, 2006
2h 9m | Comedy, Musical
Max Bialystock (Nathan Lane) and Leo Bloom (Matthew Broderick), a scheming theatrical producer and his mousy CPA, hit upon the perfect plan to embezzle a fortune: raise far more money than you need to produce a sure-fire Broadway flop and then (since no one will expect anything back), Max and Leo can pocket the difference.
To do this, they need the ultimate bad play, which they find in the musical Springtime for Hitler, written by neo-Nazi playwright (and pigeon fancier) Franz Liebkind (Will Ferrell). Their plans come to naught and the duo is taken completely by surprise when their new production is hailed as a toast-of-the-town hit.
