** The DVD commentary. Brooks starts crying during the credits over all the friends he has since lost.

** The DVD commentary. Brooks starts crying during the credits over all the friends he has since lost. [[HarsherInHindsight It's only gotten worse]] as in August 2016, Gene Wilder passed away.

Added DiffLines:

** The "[[PunctuatedForEmphasis It Could Work!]]" line is a minor one in Italy, where it was translated as "Si può fare!", which has the more general meaning of "We can do it!" and is often used in a variety of contexts as an encouragement.

** Every punchline is a quotable wonder. The movie is up there with ''BlazingSaddles'' as one of Mel Brooks' most-quoted films.

** Like many of Brooks' films, it's a massive FountainOfMemes.

!!The film:



* BrokenBase: Was TheMusical a worthy adaptation ''and'' successor to ''Film/TheProducers'', or a lame corporate shill [[WereStillRelevantDammit attempting to keep Mel Brooks relevant]]?
* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: From TheMusical, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ofhKUGiKH78 "Life, Life"]] really stands out as a genuinely dramatic and impressive number among all the silliness.

* VisualEffectsOfAwesome: TheMusical did some impressive lighting effects, such as flying sparks during "Life, Life" and the rear-projected CGI forrest during "Roll In The Hay."

* BeamMeUpScotty: Would you believe that it's entirely because of ''this'' film that the character of the deformed lab assistant is known as Igor? The character was named Fritz in the 1931 film, while Bela Lugosi played a completely different character named Ygor in its sequel ''Son of Frankenstein'', which was transferred to the Fritz counterpart in this film.

Added DiffLines:

* AwardSnub: Concerning the Oscars, the movie did receive nominations for Screenplay and Sound, but woefully ignored Marty Feldman, Cloris Leachman, and Madeline Khan's hilarious performances. Not to mention nominations for Set Decoration or Costume.

* MagnumOpus: Was a big hit when it came out, and is still considered a comedy classic. For Mel Brooks fans, either this or ''Film/BlazingSaddles'' is his best work. In the commentary Brooks states that he thinks this is not only his best work, but the best for many other people respects.
** Most people also consider this to be Gene Wilder's as well.
