Movie Info

Renato (Ugo Tognazzi) and Albin (Michel Serrault), the internationally popular homosexual couple from La Cage Aux Folles, return in this sequel directed by Edouard Molinaro. In this go-round, Renato and Albin find themselves innocent victims of an espionage ring and become involved with killers when several corpses begin to turn up. They are sought for some missing microfilm and through a series of convoluted circumstances are forced to flee, hiding out with Renato's family on their farm. Once there, Albin becomes an object of lust for a group of lonely farmhands. Benny Luke and Michel Galabru also reprise their roles from the first film.

O roteiro preguiçoso jamais consegue explorar com inteligência as próprias situações que cria.

Audience Reviews for La Cage aux Folles II

½

This likable but over-silly sequel involves the first film's camp duo, Ugo Tognazzi and Michel Serrault, in a rather desperate spy adventure when secret police and foreign agents try to find a microfilm the couple are inadvertently carrying around. Serrault's squealing performance as the suffering artiste dredges up a few laughs, particularly towards the end when he first disguises himself as a woman, and then has to pretend to be a woman disguising herself as a man. For the most part, though, this is tiresome stuff, jerking around all over the place thanks to its wildly uneven tone. Still, it's an improvement on the shrill original.

December 24, 2005. We accidentally rented this a couple days ago. Wanted to see the original. We did see the original today (see review) You do not need to see the original to see this one as the story line is completely different and independent of the original movie. It's one of those "at the wrong place at the wrong time" plots. It's fun. Don't expect great cinema. I enjoyed the silliness of the movie.
