It’s Episode 94! Louise and Sam from 90 Minute or Less Film Fest join Flixwatcher for Louise’s choice The Birdcage (which is not a 90 minute film!) https://ninetyminfilmfest.podbean.com/ The Birdcage is a 1996 remake of La Cage aux Folles starring Robin Williams (Armand) and Nathan Lane (Albert) as a gay couple who own a Miami drag club, who are forced to play a straight couple and entertain Gene Hackman and Dianne Wiest at a dinner party. It also features a Hank Azaria performance wearing very little apart from denim hotpants. The Birdcage was the 9th highest grossing film in American in 1996, while that seems surprising it is a testament to the draw of Robin Williams. While The Birdcage is a good 40 minutes longer than it should be the performances from Williams and Lane make it just about worth the inflated runtime.
[supsystic-tables id=97']With a run time of 1 hour and 59 minutes The Birdcage scores low on repeat viewing and engagement, however, Williams and Lane and the dinner party bring enough fun for The Birdcage to score overall 3.47.
