If you've seen and enjoyed the "Birdcage" do yourself a HUGE favor - suspend all fears about reading subtitles and rent thyself "La Cage Aux Folles" (part ONE, not part TWO, which is a poor continuation.Read more ›
I have seen "The Birdcage" many, many times & I know children love the movie (they will watch it repeatedly). Couples will find lines from the film invading their daily conversations. When I watch it, with my girlfriend, we have weeks of fun from one viewing! This is just one of those fun-filled, hilarious films, that even homophobic men can't resist. You will laugh, Nathan Lane will cry....and you will do poor imitations of "Agadore Spartacus" for weeks afterward. Enjoy !
The ensuing struggle between the characters to remain true to who they are and each other, and yet not mess things up for the young couple is hilarious! The supporting actors are as good as the stars in this movie.Read more ›
William's son comes home from school, and tells his father that he is getting married to a girl(played by a pre-"Ally McBeal" Callista Flockheart). She is going to bring her parents with her to meet his, but there is a catch. Her father is an ultra-conservative politician(Gene Hackman, who is also terrific here). So it is up to Williams to make sure he can pass as a straight man, and set up the apartment in a "non-gay" way, and get rid of Nathan Lane's character for the duration of the visit. Of course, things fall apart, and mishaps are abound here culminating in one of the most funny scenes I have ever seen in my life.(For those of you who have seen the movie, you know the very funny ending I'm talking about involving Gene Hackman) Nathan Lane is also great as a very feminine man, you can hardly believe when he is dressed up in drag talking that he is man. Of course, he is very sensitive, and he throws temper tantrums, gets upset over broken toast, and is a joy to watch.
What I also liked about the film is it teaches tolerance and understanding, amd that being yourself is nothing to be ashamed of, no matter who you are. This film accomplishes many things: making a film audiences will love everywhere, and teaching respect and understanding at the same time.
