    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.

    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.
  3. 100
    Maniacally funny. It remains neck and neck with "Young Frankenstein" as Brooks' best film.
  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.
