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.
Stay after the credits for a special number and appearance.
What are you in for, lack of rhythm?
The gun Franz is shooting appears to be a Luger, a very popular German pistol in the first half of the 1900s. The Luger came with an 8 round magazine and could hold an additional round in the chamber for a total of 9 shots, however 10 shots were fired without a reload. (3 in the ceiling when Franz walked in the door, 1 hit a statue, 1 hit a vase, 2 shots in the ceiling, 1 through a window, 1 hit the safe and a final shot when the gun was thrown)
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"
