Boston Globe
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.

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

Chicago Sun-Times
This is one of the funniest movies ever made. To see it now is to understand that. To see it for the first time in 1968, when I did, was to witness audacity so liberating that not even "There's Something About Mary" rivals it.

Village Voice
However familiar, it delivers like a shorted slot machine.

TV Guide Magazine
Mel Brooks's first and funniest, a spoof of Broadway theater that has earned a deservedly devoted cult following.

The Producers is so effusively inappropriate and so damned funny it is one of the highest examples of low comedy.
