The Birdcage

Trivia: The song that Armand and Katherine are singing and dancing to in her office is "Love is in the Air", which was cut from the play/movie "A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum." Nathan Lane (who plays Albert) went on to star in this play on Broadway.

Plot hole: There's no way for Albert to show up at the front door as Val's mother the night the Keeleys are there, as the only way out of his bedroom (which he is still in by the time the Keeleys show up) is through the door that leads into the living room where the Keeleys, Val and Armand are.

More quotes from The Birdcage

Question: When Senator Keeley thinks that the Goldmans are acting weird because of Senator Jackson's death and Albert replies to him about how it's dreadful news etc., did Albert know about Jackson's death, or did he just improvise on the spot?

Chosen answer: Most likely, he improvises on the spot, dodging and recovering, as he did all the way through the scene.
