Oh oh, Rent has been slammed right, left and centre by most critics. Do you even know that it is screening now? How does Tony-Award Winning musical The Producers fare?

Down on his luck Bialystock (Nathan Lane) and accountant Bloom (Matthew Broderick) reprise their roles as producers who want to produce a Broadway flop – because flops make more money than hits. All they need is a bad script, bad director and bad cast. Yes. Seems like movies with bad scripts, director and cast always make more money too. No?

Watch out for Uma Thurman as the Swedish actress/receptionist/secretary Ulla. She can play anything from a Kill Biller to the prancey dumb blond. German, Swedish and gay stereotypessssssss (no typo here) aside, The Producers is totally nonsensical, humorous, silly and loud.

Friends enjoyed it, though I was more concerned about the editing – or lack of editing which led to long shorts (which gave it a theatrical feel) and a long movie. But I didn't really care.

The Producers - Life's so stressful, we all need a little bit of laughs, and Uma Thurman.
