Max (Nathan Lane), a washed up producer, and Leo (Matthew Broderick), his accountant, decide on a financial scheme to make money with the next Broadway flop Max produces. The aim is to collect much more money than needed to produce the worst show possible, thus when it flops and closes after its opening night the pair can pocket the rest of the sum.

The two then go looking for the worst play ever written and chance upon 'Springtime for Hitler' written by ex-Nazi Franz (Will Ferrell). They then recruit the services of a flamboyantly gay director (Gary Beach), rumored to be the worst director on earth, along with his companion Carmen (Roger Bart) to handle the choreography. Then with the beautiful Swedish Ulla (Uma Thurman) acting, they're set to lift the curtain on the worst show ever...
