Lies and deception - it's all in the family when Robin Williams must convince conservative in-laws Gene Hackman and Dianne Wiest that he's as upstanding and uptight as they are in this rauciously funny comedy that'll "leave you weak from laughter" (Gannett Suburban News)! Armand (Williams) and Albert (Nathan Lane) have built the perfect life for themselves tending to their successful and gaudy nightclub on the Miami strip. But their pastel tranquility is suddenly shaken by the arrival of Armand's son...who's getting married to the daughter of ultra-conservative Senator Keeley (Hackman). What's more, the Seantor and his wife (Wiest) are on their way over for dinner and expecting to meet Mr. - and Mrs. - Family Values! Can Armand and Albert pull it off? It'll take a performance of extraordinary charisma to transform them into acceptable other words, to pull the chiffon over the Keeley's eyes. Directed by Mike Nichols (Working Girl) and co-starring Christine Baranski ("Cybill"), The Birdcage is a comedy whose time has come - and that you'll watch time and time again!
