A very bad movie

Some people love this movie but I really thought it was lame and worthless. It is a remake of a French classic which I have not seen yet.

From Best to Worst: Robin Williams (76 movies items)

"Mike Nichols wrangles agreeably amusing performances from Robin Williams and Nathan Lane in this fun, if not quite essential, remake of the French comedy La Cage aux Folles."

Total Film's 50 Best Gay Movies (50 movies items)

"Nathan Lane does drag. Robin Williams wears a porn star moustache. In Mike Nichols' colourful adaptation of Jean Poiret’s play, the laughs come thick and fast and the set-pieces stick in the memory like toffee. Vibrant, funny and surprisingly nostalgic in places."

30 Shocking Movie Mistakes (videos) (30 movies items)

" Movie mistakes "The Birdcage" (USA, 1996) The Mistakes: Robin Williams is Jesus! Look, he can refill his empty wineglass without going anywhere near the bottle. And he can relight an extinguished candle just by sitting next to it. Plus, he can move objects around his table just by looking at them. Shame about the ‘tache though. Why So Shocking? Because as we all know, Robin Williams may be many things, but the second coming is not one of them. If The Whole Thing Had Been This Shoddy: Willi"
