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

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! 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 …
