Moved from the YMMV page.
Added DiffLines:
* DudeNotFunny: The production's use of Hitler and WWII for comedy. Of course, that's the point. InUniverse, Max tries to invoke this and make the show flop, but instead succeeds via CrossesTheLineTwice.

* RefugeInAudacity: The film itself. RogerEbert liked to tell a story of a time he overheard a woman confront Creator/MelBrooks in an elevator, saying, "Your film was nothing but vulgar!" Brooks responded, "Madam, my film rises below vulgarity."

** Zero Mostel, full stop. RogerEbert noted that it was highlighted by not only Max stripping off his cardboard belt, but holding up to Leo and dramatically tearing it in half and throwing it on the floor.

In all versions, the story depicts Bialystock and Bloom meeting for the first time and quickly falling into a get-rich-quick scheme: they'll oversell shares in a Broadway production by a wide margin, then deliberately produce a horrific flop which closes in one night, leaving them free to flee the country with the remainder of the massive initial investment without the IRS investigating the books.

* TerribleIntervieweesMontage: Actually [[InvertedTrope an inversion]] of this trope, as the Hitler auditionees are rejected for being too ''good''.

* TerribleIntervieweesMontage: Actually [[InvertedTrope an inversion]] of this trope, And even for ''Springtime'', Roger rejects the singing Hitlers as awful even for him (such as the bald Hitler auditionees are rejected for being too ''good''.warbling a horrible rendition of "Beautiful Dreamer"). LSD is hired because 1) he's completely inappropriate, so Max and Leo want him, and 2) stirs Roger and Carmen's hearts with a sincere love song.
