A gay cabaret owner and his partner pretend to be straight in order to impress the right-wing parents of their son's fiancé.

Based on the 1978 French film La Cage aux Folles, The Birdcage is the kind of movie you can watch over and over again with just as many laughs as the first time you saw it. Robin Williams and Nathan Lane are at their most flamboyantly fabulous and the comedic gold strikes at any given moment, from learning how to spread mustard on toast "like a man" to Lane's cross-dressing impersonation of a conventional, conservative wife.
