The film adaptation of the musical adaptation of the original film. It's like a remake, but with song and dance. Same situations with slightly different jokes. The cast is good and it's entertaining at the least.

How bad was this remake? Let me count the ways!!! Nathan Lanes & Matthew Brodericks imitation or ripoff of Gene Wilders & Zero Mostels characters sucked,Way to much of a musical & I could go on & on & on.I could not sit through the whole thing & turned it off after 20-25 minutes.This remake cant even come close to Mel Brooks version.Skip this garbage & go see the original

Basically the same as the 1968 film classic with a slightly different cast and lacking the fresh and irreverent tone of the original. The only improvement may be that the musical sequences are directed with more visual flair, but the comedy feels a little stale.

This is perhaps the funniest and liveliest movie musical ever. I said it. Better than "Guys and Dolls," and even better than "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum," this is an hysterical comedy based on the film of the same name. Broderick and Lane (as well as Gary Beach and Roger Bart) reprise their roles from the Tony award-winning Broadway musical and add to their cast Uma Thurman and Will Ferrell, much to the appeal of the film. Brilliantly funny and as lively as can be, this is classical musicals being brought back to life, baby!

Starts a little slow, but does pick as it goes on

"Max Bialystock" (Nathan Lane) is a Broadway producer who is failing, and will do anything to raise money to put on another play -- including romancing elderly women. "Leopold 'Leo' Bloom" is an accountant with the secret desire to become a Broadway producer. After "Bloom" discovers that they could make more money if they put on a flop, the two team-up to find the worst play ever to produce. However, something happens that has the opposite effect on what they believe is a sure-fire bomb.

This movie is a little weak on the big laughs, but it does produce (no pun intended) some good chuckles. The performances of the cast, and work best when the situation is equally over the top. Lane, Thurman and most of the cast are really good in their roles. Broderick, on the other hand, looks as if ...

I loved this movie, extremely funny!

I loved this movie! When heard that it was going to be put on the big screen I wanted to see it right away. The reason that I knew anything about this movie was because of a season of "Curb Your Enthusiasm" that revolves around the production of this play. Knowing that Mel Brooks had a hand in in writing and directing this movie (and I don't think I have seen any Mel Brooks movies that I didn't enjoy), it made me want to see this all the more. The icing on the cake was that they had Nathan Lane and Matthew Broderick as the lead characters, their reviews in the theater versions were amazing, and while I never had the chance to see them perform on Broadway this would be the best chance.
While the always hilarious Lane impresses as usual, it is a surprise to see normally deadpan Matthew Bro...
