    Looks like the Photoshoppers worked overtime on Uma.

    by Flummage

    It's odd looking. It's strange to see a man as heavily photoshopped, fake and shiney as Mathew Broderick is in t hat thing... it's like a Bicentennial Man poster or something.

  • Oct. 7, 2005, 11:06 p.m. CST

    It won't be as good as Larry David's version

    by waynefoolx

    I don't see Uma working in this movie, but whatever.

    Wow, the graphics are a lot better on the X Box 360

    I don't know if the play will transfer to a video game very well though.

    Though there's one completely bemusing thing in this one-sheet... Nathan Lane's got lipstick traces on his face. Unless he's developed a healthy homosexual penchant for ladyboys, as opposed to just normal boys (gay men), then we all know that those lipstick smudges make no sense.

  • Oct. 7, 2005, 11:36 p.m. CST

    Ferris Bueller's Day Off II: Sick Day

    by I Dunno

    Ferris takes the day off to have his prostate exam! The doctor? None other than convicted pederast Principal Rooney! "You're ass is mine" was never this funny! Cameron is on day leave from the mental hospital and sister Jeanie takes a break from turning tricks in this rollicking sequel that will have you in the aisles! Ebert says, "Never has anything slayed so much since Broderick was driving in England!"

  • Oct. 7, 2005, 11:37 p.m. CST

    Your on to something sepp

    by Flummage

    ...what with that, Broderick's bizzare middle aged women's Hollywood hair commercial style lighting, and the fact that in lights behind Lane it says "Funny Boy", I think this movie has got "issues" with it's sexual identity. Somebody call Dr Phil.

    With secratary Grace as the madame.Not to mention the return of charlie sheen,cinema's greatest pervert!!"Why don't you stick your thumb up your butt??"Thought you'd never ask.

  • Oct. 8, 2005, 12:05 a.m. CST


    by Kamikaze_Jones

    Whatever. This is an entirely unneccesary film, isn't it? The original is a classic, and the play is awesome, so this is just a desperate grab for cash. I never saw the original Lane/Broderick run, but I did see it in LA with Jason Alexander and Martin Short, and in England with Lee Evans as Leo Bloom and some fat guy named Brad Oscar as Max. I think I'd rather see a movie version with Alexander and Evans, as they were both hysterical. But man-o-man, I does love me some slutty swedish Ulla-Uma...

  • Oct. 8, 2005, 12:18 a.m. CST

    Does Uma have that big a role?

    by CokeMachineGlow

    That character was pretty minor in the original if memory serves.

  • Oct. 8, 2005, 12:25 a.m. CST

    I only know the musical from the curb your enthusiasm episodes

    by I Dunno

    I'm a phillistine I know. But I got enough to know that it's fucking obnoxious. But then I can't stand musicals in general. The longer Broderick wastes his time the longer it's going to take to see Godzilla 2.

    Hey Harry

    by darylzero2005

    Does it ever make you want to just stop this "website thing" when all people do is hate on EVERY THING POSTED? You talkbackers are a fucking joke. GET A LIFE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Oct. 8, 2005, 12:37 a.m. CST

    Get a life?

    by seppukudkurosawa

    For being sceptical about a remake of what is, for some, a beloved classic? That makes us haters... Hell, I'd hate to see how apoplectic You get when some suit gets the notion to remake Battlefield Earth.

    I'm with you.

  • Oct. 8, 2005, 12:52 a.m. CST

    A beloved classic....

    by darylzero2005

    I think its great that you love that classic. SO WATCH THE CLASSIC AND DONT WASTE YOUR TIME WITH THIS ONE. The point is, why are you such a fucking little whining bitch? We are in a remake cycle here. Does that surprise you? Read a book. Go out. Do something other than bitch about something that you all have seen coming and cannot stop. I bet you haters all go pay to see it, or at least download it.

  • Oct. 8, 2005, 12:55 a.m. CST

    Which would make you, a hater of haters I guess.

    by seppukudkurosawa

    You sure do hate thems there haters.

    She DOES NOT look the part

    by Hate_Speech

    at all, she's too skinny.. Funny stage show, great movie from the 60's.. this will be ok I'm sure, but she was the wrong lady to play that role. Harry would have been a better choice than Uma.

    by DerLanghaarige

    But she still has to prove that she can act.

    "Does Uma have that big a role?"

    by freak2thec0re

    though the character didn't have too big a part in the original, she had a much bigger and more important role in the broadway show

  • Oct. 8, 2005, 6:44 a.m. CST


    by dr_dreadlocks

    Is it that fucking hard to get three actors in a room and position them on a desk for a poster? Seriously? Why the hell do they have to paste heads on other people's bodies. It's not like the actors are THAT Goddamn busy all the time. It's a two hour photo-op... But no, let's just take their heads and impose them on some poor saps body. Because... uh, we can.

  • Oct. 8, 2005, 8:12 a.m. CST

    I can't wait to see this movie. :)

    by Anna Valerious

    I loved the original with Zero Mostel and Gene Wilder (And TV's Mr. Belvedere, the late Christopher Hewitt as their drag queen director) and I can't wait to see this one...especially since Will Ferrell is playing the crazy German. :D

  • That was in Ireland, dipshit.

  • Oct. 8, 2005, 1:27 p.m. CST

    The German Guy is not Crazy!

    by Hate_Speech

    That's an insult to crazy German people, you take that back! Now! Schnell! Schnell!!!!!

    Most disgusting scene in Kill Bill?

    Mel Brooks

    by Lukecash

    Perhaps this is Mels Swan Song for film. The Producers was a great film-the Play was a different twist on the movie...Looking forward to seeing the movie cause I missed the Musical...mainly cause I don't live in NYC

    Will Farrell's name isn't above the title?

    Is he now perceived as a liability marketing-wise?

    Culture Eats Itself.

    by Wee Willie

    A movie based on the stage musical based on a movie. When will we see a movie based on the stage musical based on the movie based on the TV show based on the book based on the video game? Maybe ten years?

    quite an ugly poster.

  • Oct. 9, 2005, 9:12 a.m. CST

    It looks like a t-shirt

    by I Dunno

    Like an unlicensed airbrushed t-shirt you'd buy at a flea market.

  • Oct. 9, 2005, 11:38 p.m. CST

    Finally I can afford to see the musical

    by Neojanus

    Some guy up there said he missed the musical because he doesn't live in NY. I live in NY and never go to see the show. Simply I never had the money or patience to pay like 80 bucks for a show two months from the time I buy the ticket.

    MEL BROOKS is NOT Directing?

    by Drath

    And is that a good thing? His last several movies haven't been all that great, and I don't know if he's just lost his touch (how the hell was there not a joke about him holding crosses as Van Helsing in that Dracula spoof?) or if he's just not as passionate about the material he's spoofing anymore. I could blame the not-as-good crop of new actors he's got to work with, but how do you make Jeffrey Tambor as unfunny as he did in Life Stinks? I hope I get to laugh with this one, I miss loving Mel Brooks movies. At least his name is all over it so that if it works it can't be mistaken for anything but a Mel Brooks creation. And if it stinks, it's the fault of someone else because the original and the play are both good.

    Spaceballs Episode II: Revenge of the Schwartz

    by BannedOnTheRun

    You know you want it, bitch.

  • Oct. 10, 2005, 7:11 p.m. CST

    Huh ...

    by MajorOcelot

    Is it just me or does Uma look like Madonna on this? Also, amen on the Spaceballs prequel banned, but wouldn't it have to be Spaceballs CHAPTER something? It called itself Chapter 11, I think, in the opening credits.

  • Oct. 10, 2005, 9:55 p.m. CST

    Just bought "blazing saddles" on DVD the other day.

    by cherrycola

    Oh how I miss the mel that made that movie along with "high anxiety" ("i got it...I got it....I got it...I don't got it....) and "silent movie". I TRIED....yes, TRIED to watch "life stinks" and was very disappointed. Even spaceballs leaves me in a somewhat "bleh" state of mind. Sorry, but the jokes don't hold up to the ravages of time like, say..."young frankenstein".

  • Oct. 11, 2005, 8:26 p.m. CST

    is that Madonna on the poster?

    by jrbarker

    doesn't look like Uma

    by towerman

    Let's hope that "The Producers" doesn't meet the same fate that "The Phantom of the Opera" met with last December when it bombed at the domestic boxoffice (it may have done better internationally). It played on broadway for years and still has stage productions going on all over the world but that did not translate into big boxoffice dollars. Lack of big boxoffice names might have veen a factor.
