    Peter Travers Rolling Stone

    Stroman should have studied the original Producers that Brooks directed in 1968, with Zero Mostel and Gene Wilder. It answers the question "Where did they go right?" show more

    Most of the bits and performances have a hard time making the transition from stage to screen. show more

    Enough is enough. Somebody should just stop remaking The Producers. show more

    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    The Producers is nightmarish, in its febrile way, a head-bangingly primitive version of an overrated Broadway show that grew out of a clumsy 1968 movie with an inflated reputation. show more

    If you have seen the play, especially if you've seen it with the original cast, treasure the memory and protect it. The movie will attack it like a virus. show more

    The best two performances belong to Uma Thurman and Will Ferrell. For the film to work, though, the two best roles should belong to Tony-winning Nathan Lane and Matthew Broderick in the title roles. show more

    Ty Burr Boston Globe

    Susan Stroman directed the show on Broadway and what she has done here is photograph that show -- no more, no less. This is good news for anyone who couldn't afford a trip to New York and $100 tickets, but it's a fairly odd approach to cinema. show more

    Miami Herald

    The chemistry is intact, but performances that were reaching-for-the-balcony big on Broadway haven't been scaled back a bit for a more intimate, up-close medium. show more
