PG-13 | | Comedy, Crime, 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.
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.
Roger De Bris:
I shall have to think about it - I'll do it.
When Leo knocks on Max's door at the beginning of the movie, you see him knocking with his right hand. Later the angle changes and you see that Leo is knocking with his left hand and has a bag and coat on his right hand.
Showgirls from Bloom's dream sequence during the accounting office number dance around some of the closing credits.
