The Birdcage - Movie Synopsis & Plot

Armand and Albert are two men that are sharing a long-term relationship and live a luxurious life on top of Armand's drag queen club, The Birdcage. Together, they raised Armand's son, Val, and one day they get the great news: He's getting married. His soon-to-be wife is bringing her family to their house and Val asks Armand to clean up the place a little bit. That means lose the art collection, furnishings, clothes, and Albert.

Senator Keeley is an ultra-conservative going for re-election and he thinks that a trip to his future in-laws could take some stress off his. It's anything but as he tries to uncover what is so peculiar about Armand and Albert (who is dressed like a woman) as they attempt to act out a normal, everyday family.

MOVIE REVIEW

The Birdcage has potential but seems a little "clipped," as Robin Williams does not deliver much comedy in a scenario that could really make him shine. Nathan Lane really shines, but his funny scenes don't make up for the boredom that the rest of the movie lays out.
