Armand Goldman owns a popular drag nightclub in South Miami Beach. His long-time lover, Albert, stars there as Starina. "Their" son Val (actually Armand's by his one heterosexual fling, twenty years before) comes home to announce his engagement to Barbara Keeley, daughter of Kevin Keeley, US Senator, and co-founder of the Committee for Moral Order. The Senator and family descend upon South Beach to meet Val, his father and "mother." What ensues is comic chaos.

The Reviews for The Birdcage (1996) 1080p

One of the joys of watching good performers is seeing them fall so deeply into their role that when their character is asked to change, the change is so uncomfortable it either creates drama or comedy. In this case, we have comedic gold. Robin Williams headlines but Nathan Lane is the star of this filled festival of frolicing, where everybody throws in their characters worth and has the audience on the floor laughing.

Robin Williams and Nathan Lane play two gay Jewish lovers in Florida who own a drag club called The Birdcage. William's straight son is going to get married to the daughter of a Rightest Senator from Ohio. Williams and Lane decide to try to play it straight for a night, which means turning everything in their comfortable world upside down and inside out to pull it all together.

The writing is simply excellent, great dialog and very quotable. Even if the movie itself ended up terribly, it would have had good camp value regardless. However, the movie itself is supported strongly by the fantastic work of the acting, especially Lane because he is able to not only convince the audience about his character, but have his character try and act as well, thus creating multiple levels of personality hard to come to terms with inside of just one person. Williams does well too, but probably the best counterpart to Lane is Hank Azaria in a hilariously gay role and Gene Hackman and Dianne Wiest as the conservative parents. They actually make the conservatism the movie pokes at believable while not becoming too mocking or too caricaturistic.

All in all, it's a good time, and great fun for the whole (openminded) family.


Love to see Nathan Lane's Deleted numberReviewed bySober-FriendVote: 9/10

This film is very funny. If you don't know the story then I won't spoiled it. Just think of it as "Meet the Gay Parents". If I tell you more about the set-up it will spoil it. Robin Williams stars. It was also a shame that Hank Azaria or Nathan Lane were snubbed Academy Award Nomination.

MGM released the film in 1996 and it was one of the highest grossing films of the year. Sadly they have neglected the film on home video. There has been no elaborate DVD or Blu-Ray! There was a television cut that ran 20 minutes longer and those scenes never been released on dvd even as a bonus feature.

Also there is number that Nathan Lane at the beginning of the film that was cut. I think it was a Judy garland number. He would like the scene released as well! Well MGM how about a great release of this film.

A Scream!Reviewed byEmperorNortonIIVote: 8/10

I saw "The Birdcage" because I'd already seen "La Cage aux Folles." And I thought this one was a great remake, if not better. Robin Williams and Nathan Lane give hilarious performances as the lead couple. I haven't seen "La Cage" in ages, but there were tidbits in "The Birdcage" that I remembered from the original. Of all American remakes of French movies, this is by far my favorite!
