I have seen the French version of this movie (La Cage aux Folles) whenever it was on Netflix, and I have to admit that I like the American version better mainly because of Robin Williams, Nathan Lane, and Hank Azaria. Birdcage is a comedy about how a gay club owner and his drag queen lover have to “play straight” while meeting their future, right-wing in-laws. Azaria is the hilarious house-boy, and he is what makes the movie. It was a funny, quick movie that is great for a lazy sunday. However, it can be rather slow in “plot pace”.
2.5 out of 5 stars
