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 Keeley, daughter of Kevin Keeley, US Senator, and co-founder of the Committee for Moral Order. The Senator and family descend upon South Beach to meet Val, his father and "mother." What ensues is comic chaos. Written by

In the movie, Calista Flockhart's character Barbara is "not even 19". Flockhart was actually 30 at the time of the filming. Dan Futterman's character Val is supposed to be 20, but in reality, he was actually 27 when the film was being shot. See more »
Armand puts the small green statue in a desk to hide it but earlier when they were moving items out of the house prior to the Senators arrival, the statue was put into a box to be taken away. See more »

I saw "The Birdcage" because I'd already seen "La Cage aux Folles." And I thought this one was a great remake, if not better. Robin Williams and Nathan Lane give hilarious performances as the lead couple. I haven't seen "La Cage" in ages, but there were tidbits in "The Birdcage" that I remembered from the original. Of all American remakes of French movies, this is by far my favorite!
