The words "French" and "comedy" put together always inspire dread. Add the words "Hollywood" and "remake" and you have a recipe for total disaster.

An all-star cast with clever writing, entertaining production sets and with a likable concept. The amazing performances carried out and even the drama was not coy. I remember laughing hard when I first saw this. A good comedy if your in a mood to watch a movie whose premise is similar to Mrs. Doubtfire, Tootsie or Some Like it Hot.

Though witty and well-acted, this American remake of the great French comedy 'La Cage Aux Folles' ditches the cynicism of the original and opts instead for heartstring pulling... with predictably bromidic results.

The witty dialogue of this comedy of manners is made all the more entertaining and also touching by the heartfelt portrayals of both Williams and Lane. Nathan Lane's comedic timing is gold.

A Bona Fide Comedy of Errors

One can guess that pretty much everything goes awry. Even though Iím not particularly into films that only feature homosexuality in a feminine light, thereís something about this movie that made me smile and laugh out loud. Itís easy to tell that all of the actors are having fun with their characters because sometimes it would seem that certain actions or pop culture references are a wink to the audiences. I also consider it a good thing that the talented Mike N...
