First-rate filming of Mel Brooks' Broadway megahit about a losing-streak producer (Nathan Lane) and a stage-struck accountant (Matthew Broderick) who hatch a scheme to bankroll a show that's doomed to failure -- an Adolf Hitler musical -- and walk away with the investment. Director Susan Stroman makes an auspicious film debut, faithfully re-creating her original staging, while members of the Broadway cast are joined by a funny Will Ferrell and Uma Thurman in this throwback to 1950s-era movie musicals. Some bawdy and outrageous humor including gay stereotypes, cross-dressing, sexual innuendo, suggestive costuming and dancing, some crude language and comic violence. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents are strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
