The Producers, the movie of the Broadway musical of the 1968 movie now comes to DVD — anyone for The Producers: The Podcast? Certainly this film, directed by Susan Stroman, could use some scaling down: Nathan Lane and Matthew Broderick didn’t adjust their performances for camera close-ups, but gesticulate and overenunciate as though still playing for the back rows of matinee crowds. EXTRAS Some funny outtakes, but a woefully halting commentary by Stroman is filled with gushing blather like ”Our prop department did a great job with those adding machines — they’re very authentic.”
