    This is one of the funniest movies ever made. To see it now is to understand that. To see it for the first time in 1968, when I did, was to witness audacity so liberating that not even "There's Something About Mary" rivals it.

    Maniacally funny. It remains neck and neck with "Young Frankenstein" as Brooks' best film.

    The one aspect of the original Producers that still stuns is the roaring, over-the-top, in-your-face thereness of its two lead performances.
  4. However familiar, it delivers like a shorted slot machine.

    Mel Brooks's first and funniest, a spoof of Broadway theater that has earned a deservedly devoted cult following.

    One of the funniest movies I've ever seen. Period. With every scene a satire of something, Mel Brooks made his masterpiece of comedy quite early. Gene Wilder and Zero Mostel are perhaps the funniest duo on screen, beating Murtaugh and Riggs, Abbot and Costello, Thelma and Louise, and even the Blues Brothers. The script is funny from beginning to end. Nothing about this movie didn't want me to laugh. Expand
