THE BIRDCAGE (1996) ***

In Mike Nichols’ blockbuster remake of La Cage Aux Folles, Robin Williams and Nathan Lane star as a gay couple who have to “play it straight” when their son’s fiancée’s ultra conservative parents (Gene Hackman and Dianne Weist) come by for dinner.  It’s predictable and contrived, but Williams’ and Lane’s performances sell it and Hank Azaria is also great as their “butler”.   Co-starring Dan Futterman and Calista Flockhart and written by Elaine May.
