PG-13 | | Comedy, Musical
After putting together another Broadway flop, down-on-his-luck Producer Max Bialystock teams up with timid accountant Leo Bloom in a get-rich-quick scheme to put on the world's worst show.
Bialystock's surname is actually a nod to a Polish town of Bialystok: according to Wikipedia, it is "the largest city in northeastern Poland and the capital of the Podlaskie Voivodeship. Located in the Bialystok Uplands (Polish: Wysoczyzna Bialostocka) of the Podlaskie Plain (Polish: Nizina Polnocnopodlaska) on the banks of the Biala River, Bialystok ranks second in terms of population density, eleventh in population, and thirteenth in area, of the cities of Poland. It has historically attracted migrants from elsewhere in Poland and beyond, particularly from Central and Eastern Europe. This is facilitated by the fact that the nearby border with Belarus is also the eastern border of the European Union, as well as the Schengen Area.
Settle down, you teutonic TWIT!
In the beginning of "We Can Do It" Max Bialystock steps on his desk onto an open accounting book. When he steps down to go towards Leo, the book on the desk is closed.
Showgirls from Bloom's dream sequence during the accounting office number dance around some of the closing credits.
