  • Critic Reviews of "The Birdcage"

    Chicago Reader

    This isn't the supreme masterpiece it might have been, but Nichols's direction is very polished and some of the lines and details are awfully funny.

    Washington Post
    May 27, 2011

    If The Birdcage isn't exactly the Mike Nichols-Elaine May movie of our dreams, it does manage to transform what was formerly a campy bit of French fluff into one of the loopiest, most hysterical family-values movies ever made.

    March 26, 2009

    The Birdcage is a scream.

    Time Out
    June 24, 2006

    It doesn't so much champion diversity as celebrate conformity.

    San Francisco Chronicle
    June 18, 2002

    A glossy miscalculation with Nathan Lane and Robin Williams.

    Chicago Sun-Times
    January 01, 2000

    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.

    August 24, 2014

    The Birdcage grossed nearly $200 million worldwide in 1996, and that is significant. Box Office Mojo says it's the highest grossing queer film of all time, though they're not counting Frozen and 300, and they probably should.

    Common Sense Media
    August 19, 2014

    Campy, comedic romp with lots of profanity.

    Movie Metropolis
    July 16, 2014

    Robin Williams plays off of a flaming Nathan Lane with delicious understatement and anchors a farce that moves along at a brisk pace-with or without heels.

    At its core, it is about human relationships. They're extreme relationships, and they're cross-wired to get an electric reaction, but they're real characters nonetheless.

    TV Guide
    May 29, 2011

    What might be a surprise, given the talents involved, is how relentlessly unfunny it is.

    Empire Magazine

    It undoubtedly remains a genial crowd pleaser. If the dress fits, wear it.
