The Birdcage (1996) Soundboard

The Birdcage is a delightful and humorous movie released in 1996 that brings together a renowned cast of talented actors. This iconic film, directed by Mike Nichols, tells the story of a gay cabaret owner and his drag queen partner who, in an effort to appease their conservative future in-laws, pretend to be a conventional straight couple.

The film stars Robin Williams in the leading role of Armand Goldman, the owner of The Birdcage nightclub in South Beach, Miami. Williams, known for his exceptional comedic timing, delivers a stellar performance filled with wit and charm. His portrayal of Armand showcases his versatility as an actor, effortlessly transitioning from hilarious to heartfelt moments throughout the film.

Playing the role of Albert Goldman, Armand's flamboyant and dramatic partner, is the incredibly talented Nathan Lane. Lane's comedic genius brings an infectious energy to the character, earning him critical acclaim and a nomination for a Golden Globe award. His performance is both hilarious and heartfelt, adding depth and vulnerability to the story.

The film also features Gene Hackman as Senator Keeley, the ultra-conservative father of the young woman engaged to Armand's son, Val. Hackman captivates the audience with his portrayal of the rigid and uptight politician, whose beliefs clash with the colorful characters of The Birdcage. Dianne Wiest portrays Senator Keeley's wife, Louise, adding a touch of compassion and understanding amidst the chaos.

Other notable cast members include Dan Futterman as Val Goldman, Armand's son, and Calista Flockhart as Barbara Keeley, Val's fiancée. The chemistry between Futterman and Flockhart's characters is engaging, as they desperately endeavor to keep their families from discovering the truth about Armand and Albert's unconventional lifestyle.

The Birdcage is a heartwarming comedy that challenges societal norms and prejudices, highlighting the importance of love, acceptance, and the true meaning of family. With exceptional performances from the talented cast, the movie masterfully blends laughter with poignant moments that tug at the heartstrings.

To fully immerse yourself in The Birdcage experience, you can play and download the movie's marvelous soundtrack. From engaging cabaret performances to catchy tunes that will have you tapping your feet, the soundtrack captures the essence of the movie and its vibrant setting. It features memorable tracks such as "We Are Family" by Sister Sledge and "I Could Have Danced All Night" from the classic musical My Fair Lady.

So grab a bowl of popcorn, sit back, and let The Birdcage take you on a hilarious and heartwarming journey. With its stellar cast, brilliant direction, and delightful soundtrack, this 1996 film is a timeless gem that continues to entertain and inspire audiences to this day.

Actually, I'm talking to the asshole behind you.
Agador's superb soup. We're in luck, he doesn't make this for everyone.
Al, you old so and so.
Albert is hysterical now.
Albert, you're blocking my way.
Albert! Will you listen?
And a lot of good, warm, family feeling.
And Albert's practically a breast.
And all of the French. Especially Mitterrand.
And his snobbery. And that dig about Grover's Corners.
And I chose Albert.
And I wanted to check..
And it would be such a special marriage.
And the roads. Black...
Are you trying to ruin me?
Armand, they're picking on us.
As Jonathan Swift did when he suggested
Bad things, that...
Barbara's nice. I owe it to Val,
Because chicken is so important to them.
But I bet John Major has something on the side. And she can't handle it.
But I pity the woman who's too busy to take care of her man.
But I still have feelings.
But you'll look like a fag in a uniform.
Chocolate schnecken.
Daddy favored Key Biscayne, but...
Did you see him when she talked? He looked almost frightened.
Don't be ashamed of Grover's Corners.
Don't be silly. I got pork roast for dinner.
Don't call me Barbie. Today at two. We've been sleeping together for a year.
Don't come back, don't ask me for anything.
Don't look at me like that. I didn't kill him.
Don't use the spoon. And don't dribble dots of mustard.
Eli Jackson was a common redneck. We never saw him socially.
Excuse me.
Excuse us.
First, you're only 20.
From 2:30 till 3:45 a.m. Two times.
Fuck the Senator. I don't give a damn what he thinks.
Gentlemen... and ladies,
Goddamn it! Fuck the shrimp!
Green fields.
Growing up the way he did. It can't have been easy.
He won't let her run the house. He's in the kitchen. He serves.
He's asleep in his room if you don't believe me.
He's locked himself in. If we're lucky he won't come out at all.
He's not a cultural attaché?
He's very nice, but such a problem.
Here I am!
Hideous! Fat and hideous!
Him and his Cole d'whatever.
His father is in the arts. He's on the Council of Cultural Arts.
How handsome you were.
How is he?
How nice to meet you, Mrs. Coleman.
I am.
I assure you,
I can hardly wait.
I can still get hurt.
I can't get this damn tie even.
I don't believe this. I don't fucking believe this! I'm ruined!
I don't know what happened.
I don't understand.
I don't understand.
I feel like I'm insane.
I haven't done much for him in the last 20 years.
I just don't know.
I just want to say, Mr. And Mrs... Mr...
I know it's a little late
I know.
I know. I can't get this big lug to buy a new suit.
I made you short?
I think I have found the one.
I told Albert he could stay.
I won't let some idiot senator destroy that.
I would have loved to see your children.
I... I...
I'll bet you were lovely.
I'll do this, Albert.
I'll get you some more ice. Be right back, love.
I'm getting married.
I'm here, son.
I'm in the home of a gay couple who own a drag club.
I'm not wearing any makeup.
I've never seen these bowls before
If politicians didn't make laws to protect them.
If you don't finish making up, I'll kill myself.
In the Senator's... story.
Indifference is the most awful thing in the world.
Ironic, isn't it? When you need a woman...
Is Armand there?
Is he? That helps.
Is one of the things weakening this country.
Isn't that nice?
It must be coming from that nightclub on the corner.
It was a wonderful world then, wasn't it? Happy families and
It was all sand when they bought here.
It was just so magical to come from the north, where it's cold...
It's a wonderful show.
It's insane.
It's just for one night.
It's one of the prettiest in the world.
It's perfectly innocent.
It's so wonderful what you've done here. Everything is so simple and uncluttered.
It's the end. I know it is.
Jackson's dead.
Just one.
Kevin, this is a man.
Let's drink to Senator Keeley's daughter and our Val.
Let's keep going. And no more talking from anyone.
Look at this.
Many pro lifers, I don't agree with them, but they feel that if you...
Mom, don't talk about things you don't know about.
Morality is political.
My best wigs. I won't need them where I'm going.
My co founder just died in the bed of an underage black whore!
My mother wouldn't do it. Would she?
No good?
No, he's too controversial. What about Billy Graham?
No, I want to go home.
No, Kevin, Kevin, Kevin.
No. Mrs. Coleman can't handle him.
No. You can't be *******.
Not even our show. Your show.
Not necessarily.
Now take off the wig or I'll tell Albert you wore it.
Of course, it's wrong to kill an abortion doctor.
Of course, we don't believe a word of it.
Oh, Armand, our baby is going to leave us. And we won't have any others.
Oh, fuck 'em. Of course you can pass as an uncle.
Oh, God! I pierced the toast!
Oh, God. I thought, "What the hell?"
Oh, my God.
Oh, my God. That's it. That's it.
Oh, this.
Okay, I'll bite.
Or Madonna, Madonna, Madonna! But you keep it all inside.
Or Twyla, Twyla, Twyla! Or Michael Kidd, Michael Kidd, Michael Kidd!
Paragraph two, it's "porno," not "pronto."
Peasant soup is an entrée. It's like stew!
Pop, without her, I'm screwed. You know that.
Pornography would not exist
Quick, give me a pen. I don't want all of this, Armand.
Really? Barbara told us it was mostly sand
Senator Keeley!
Shall we have champagne to celebrate?
She transcends your desire to chew. She electrifies you!
She won't.
She's a housewife.
Shut up, goddamn you! Stop crying! Goddamn you!
Sign it.
So funny.
So this is hell. And there's a crucifix in it.
So we're all alone.
So what do you think of these kids getting married?
Somebody has to like me best.
Something to drink?
Something very strange is going on.
South Beach, Florida.
Starina will not disappoint them, even in this state.
Start tomorrow morning. I'll get Albert out early.
Stop the doctors, you stop the abortions
Sweetie, you're wasting your gum.
Take it easy, Louise. Barbara, we're leaving now.
Take it.
Thank you, Agador Spartacus! You may go.
Thank you.
That better?
That's just what Rush Limbaugh said.
That's so refreshing, isn't it, Kevin?
That's what I thought until I found out Alexander the Great was a fag.
The bag lady. Good morning, Agador.
The hills, the mountains.
The incomparable Starina.
The monster...
The Senator was co founder of the Coalition for Moral Order
The tension... it's like riding a psychotic horse toward a burning stable.
The trees.
Then I'll see you upstairs.
Then why did they move to New Jersey?
Then you haven't seen one in a long time. That's a boy.
There's an idiotic issue, gays in the military!
There's more. There's a lot more.
They own the drag club downstairs. They're two men.
They pay.
They took everything away.
They're in my purse by the chair.
This guy's a fucking maniac.
This is my wife.
This is our footage for the show on Jackson. Pump up the sound.
This is so Guatemala.
This must be the same building
This young man Barbie wants to marry...
Tighten your wrist.
To perform with your little estrogen Rockettes.
To plan an event.
To see the wonderful farms, the countryside.
Unbutton your shirt.
Val, was that Mom?
Val's fiancée is coming tonight with her parents.
Val's getting married.
Val's mother is just late.
Val's uncle? Uncle Al?
Very nice, Val.
Wait, Miss Albert! Don't forget this.
Wait, wait.
Was that my wife?
We may not make the live shot. If we must, I'll do a stand up.
We need a woman.
We'd like the champagne now.
We'd never get him past the Keeleys. Dad, we have to rid of a few things.
