Movie Camera

The Producers

Lisa and I went to see the Producers last night.  Got to the theater and paid the $17 for two tickets!  I was shocked at the price, but paid anyway and went in.  The film was open captioned, which was kind of annoying, but the theater was mostly empty, which was nice.

Anyway, the film... absolutely rocked.  I've never laughed so much at a movie.  Nathan Lane was hysterical, and Matthew Broderick was amusing else well.  Uma Thurman and Will Ferrell also did amusingly well in their roles.  With lines like, "Rest assured my dear, that despite the fact that we are sitting, we are giving you a standing ovation," you really can't go wrong.

As I was about to leave, this conversation ensued with Travis:
T: What are you going to see?
J: The Producers.
T: Oh, so Lisa picked it.
J: ???... umm, no, I wanted to see it too.
T: Really, I figured you would have picked something where stuff blows up.
J: This looks entertaining.
T: Oh, ok.

And rest assured, it was a quality movie.  Makes me want to see more musicals :)
