(I have seen it before, but only in bits and pieces) As I sat there watching this movie, I could not believe how much of it was copied almost scene for scene in the Birdcage. The only difference being the Black servant, and the fact that it is all spoken in French with subtitles. There might have been a few differences, but, the Birdcage is almost a mirror image of it. Robin Williams almost looks like his French Counterpart. And, the actor who had the same role as Nathan Lane was just as clever. Not all of the acting in this version is as good as what is offered in the Birdcage, but what is good about it, is very good. I really enjoyed this movie. The First movie I ever watched where I actually read every subtitle, and critiqued almost every scene. But, I think you almost have to watch the Birdcage first, to enjoy it.

The only part of a star I gave it was in honor to the incredible roster of talent so horribly wasted here. I have enjoyed most of the mains in other westerns, as well as the director. This movie seemed to have no pacing, did not know what it wanted to do. Gag OVER used lady with her horn. I began hoping someone would shoot her, as it became annoying, and not funny fast. Watched it once.. sold it, would never watch it again. Barely was able to sit through to the end.
