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

While Albert acts as Mother, Armand describes her to Senator Keeley as the "girl from Grover's Corners." Senator Keeley replies that Grover's Corners is "a great place to call home." Grover's Corners is the fictional, idyllic small town in Thornton Wilder's famous stage play "Our Town." See more »
When Armand discovers that Val is getting married, he quickly drinks all of his champagne. But when he gets up to refill his glass, it appears that there is still champagne there. 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!
