Plot Summary

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'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? Well, there's no accounting for taste... Written by rmlohner

Trivia After Max (Nathan Lane) and Leo (Matthew Broderick) do Der Guten Tag Hop Clop with Franz (Will Ferrell), Max tries to pull open the door. When it doesn't open, he shouts, "We're trapped!" This is an inside joke from the play's run in England. One night, a stage hand had locked the door. When Nathan Lane tried it, he realized it was locked and shouted out, "We're trapped! Trapped like rats with a crazy Nazi!" A stage hand then went up and unlocked the door and they got out. See more »
Goofs During the scene entitled "Creative Accounting" when Bialystock and Bloom are first introduced to one another, Max tells Leo to take a deep breath after nearly frightening the man into hysterics. After Leo takes his heavy, drawling breath and looks back to Max, for one split second, you can see Nathan Lane's mouth turn up in a smile, just about to laugh, and then the camera angle changes. If you watch the Outtakes in the special features, you can see the goof of Lane's in full force; unable to stop himself from laughing, which they simply cut short in the feature. See more »

Crazy Credits For the closing credits, Will Ferrell (in the character of Franz Liebkind) recorded "The Hop-Clop Goes On" - a slower version of "Der Guten Tag Hop-Clop" that parodies "My Heart Will Go On" from "Titanic" right down to the cheesy instrumentals. At the end of the song, Franz whispers to the audience: "Don't forget to purchase 'Mein Kampf' in paperback. You can find it at Borders... or Barnes and Noble...und Amazon.com" See more »
Quotes Leo Bloom: Let's assume for a moment, that you are a dishonest man.
Max Bialystock: Assume away.
