Author/star Franz Liebkind (Will Ferrell) literally breaks his leg on opening night, and the director, Roger De Bris (Gary Beach) has to play Hitler. Roger brings such a “make it gay” camp factor to the part that the show becomes a huge hit. Max and Leo’s (Nathan Lane, Matther Broderick) deception in overselling the shares is uncovered, and Max is arrested. Leo escapes to Rio with Ulla (Uma Therman), but comes back to rescue his friend. The show they produce in prison, “Prisoners of Love,” is so entertaining that it inspires the governor to pardon them. “Prisoners of Love” is a huge hit as well, and Max and Leo go on to become the kings of Broadway.
