In A Nutshell...
And The Producers fits the bill:
"The movie is so poorly conceived, directed, choreographed, and executed by Susan Stroman that it makes its lead actors, Nathan Lane and Matthew Broderick, utterly charmless and the whole musical witless and unappealing."-- Emanuel Levy, EMANUELLEVY.COM
The thought of Nathan Lane becoming aroused by the sight of Uma makes me, well, queasy. The play itself featured as much razzle-dazzle as humanly possible in order to overcome the absolute lack of acting ability possessed by Mr's Broderick and Lane, and the movie is far worse. It wasn't PC to knock this darling of the Great White Way but critics cannot help themselves so the flick must be as bad as cinema gets. Ms Thurmon does have great gams but for my money was far more attractive when she first started acting. Didn't resemble a Holocaust victim if you get my drift.
