Director: Mike Nichols
Stars: Robin Williams, Gene Hackman, Nathan Lane, and Dianne Wiest
Nathan Lane in drag, a perfect 'stache worn by Robin Williams, and Hank Azaria's brilliant character work make The Birdcage one of the funniest movies ever made, easily. It's a classic story of two young and nervous lovebirds finally introducing each other's families. The catch? She (Calista Flockhart) comes from an ultra right-wing house and he (Azaria) was raised by two dads (Lane and Williams), who also happen to own a cabaret.
Of course the only solution is to pretend to be a straight couple and try to pass off Nathan Lane as a woman. —TA
