Remake of the classic Mel Brooks comedy, starring Nathan Lane and Matthew Broderick as Max Bialystock and Leo Bloom, a scheming theatrical producer and his mousy assistant. The producers hit upon the perfect plan to embezzle a fortune: raise far more money than you need to produce a sure-fire Broadway flop and then (since no one will expect anything back) Max and Leo can pocket the difference. To do this, they need the ultimate bad play, which they find in the musical 'Springtime for Hitler'. But their plans come to naught and the duo are taken completely by surprise when their new production is hailed as a toast-of-the-town hit.
Please note this is a region 2 DVD and will require a region 2 or region free DVD player in order to play Bringing the Tony Award Winning musical on to the big screen New York 1959 Max Bialystock was once the king of Broadway but now all his shows close on opening night Things turn around when he&39;s visited by the neurotic accountant Leo Bloom who proposes a scheme tailor-made for producers who can only make flops raise far more money than you need then make sure the show is despised No one will be interested in it so you can pocket the surplus To this end they produce a musical called Springtime for Hitler written by escaped Nazi Franz Liebken Then they get the insanely flamboyant Roger De Bris to direct Finally they hire as a lead actress the loopy Swedish bombshell Ulla (whose last name has over 15 syllables) As opening night draws near what can go wrong?
