    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 Keely, daughter of Kevin Keely, US Senator, and vice president of the Committee for Moral Order. The Senator and family descend upon South Beach to meet Val and his father and "mother..." and what ensues is comic chaos.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent adaptation of "La Cage Aux Folles"... Mike Nichols (The Graduate) has done an exemplary task bringing the classic French comedy "La Cage Aux Folles" to the USA. Starring Robin Williams (Dead Poets Society), Gene Hackman (Enemy of the State), Nathan Lane, Dianne Weist (The Mule) and a young Calista Flockhart (Ally McBeal), this tale of a gay couple (played excessively well by Williams and Lane) who must 'pretend' to be straight in the presence of their son's parents in law works well in this American remake and is one of the better remakes of original French films. Hilarious yet deadpan, "The Birdcage" is a hoot! Even if you know the story, you will laugh all over again.
