    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Another great funny, funny movie. The Campbells soup can necklace was a scream. The gay elevator ride was hysterical. I watched it many times and always has me laughing. Expand

    I give this film an 11. No, a 12! A solid 12. Side splitting, irreverent over the top insanity from start to finish. So many great comic lines. This is the Casablanca of comedy. Bring me another bowl of borscht! I cannot get enough of Zero Mostel.

    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 meOne of the funniest movies I've ever seen. Period.

    A hilarious stab both at the worlds of theatre and accounting. A high watermark achieved by Mel Brooks, Zero Mostel and Gene Wilder, in early work both for Mel and Gene. I haven't seen the remake yet, so I can't compare, but this version is a glorious hoot from start to finish!

    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.
  2. However familiar, it delivers like a shorted slot machine.

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