A very bad movie

4 years, 7 months ago at Jan 13 14:48
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. I thought the story and the jokes were just stupid and not funny at all and I consider this Robin Williams' worst movie. Maybe I will give it another try since many people are quite positive about it and maybe I won't... A very bad comedy which is not worth your... read more

"Re-watch - June 26th In honor of the gay marriage ruling by the US Supreme Court, Drafthouse announced free late night showings of The Birdcage. I wanted to go, but I had to be up early for work the next day so instead I pulled the film up on Netflix after I got home. Now, the last time I watched this movie it was still in theatres, which of course doesn't count all the times I've caught moments of it on TV over the years. I enjoyed it every bit as much, maybe even a little more this time aroun"

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."

"~ Yes a lot of the characters play up the stereotypes but this movie has a lot of heart and has so many funny moments."

"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"
