birdcage300The American remake of the French comedy La Cage aux Folles about a gay man whose son wants him to play it straight for a few days. Everything goes wrong that possibly can. Mike Nichols and Elaine May, who helped define improvisational comedy in the 1950s, came together for the first time as director and writer to create this movie. 1996, USA, 118 minutes, some strong language

“What The Birdcage revives isn’t simply the camp appeal of kitsch-happy queens. It’s the lost art of farce, the kind of lovingly structured gags that build, merge, and detonate on screen.” – Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly

“One of the loopiest, most hysterical family-values movies ever made.” – Hal Hinson, Washington Post
