"The Birdcage is a scream."Todd McCarthy, Variety

"Knee-slapping scenes coupled with thoughtfully acute moments as well."Candice Frederick, Reel Talk Online

"The beauty of The Birdcage is that its jokes and its message are one and the same. These characters couldn't change themselves if they tried. And only a fool would want them to."Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly

In this remake of the classic French farce La Cage aux Folles, engaged couple Val Goldman and Barbara Keeley shakily introduce their future in-laws. Val's father, Armand (Robin Williams), a gay Miami drag club owner, pretends to be straight and attempts to hide his relationship with Albert (Nathan Lane), his life partner and the club's flamboyant star attraction, so as to please Barbara's father, a controversial Republican senator.
