Pretty funny comedy from the days when Williams didn't feel he had to be either A. TOTALLY CHARMING or B. ABSOLUTELY EVIL.

It is not the Broadway classic, but it's ok. Just for fun.

Broad and fairly belabored, but Williams' ceaseless energy, Hackman's dry wit, and Azaria's insanity save the day.

A glossy miscalculation with Nathan Lane and Robin Williams.

This feel-good family comedy with a twist is based on the 1978 French film La Cage aux Folles.

What makes Mike Nichols' version more than just a retread is good casting in the key roles, and a wicked screenplay by Elaine May, who keeps the original story but adds little zingers here and there.

It's a rare event when a remake of a film rivals the greatness of the original.

One of those rare motion pictures with side-splitting laughs where the humor never stays dormant for long.

Basically, the movie's an extended setup for a dinner-table comedy of errors, in which the mismatched relatives confront one another in a nerve-racking test of appearances.
