- La Cage aux Folles II review by BE
Well what a disappointment. The original La Cage aux Folles was absolutely hilarious. This one is not. It's an extremely run of the mill comedy(?) with nothing original about it. The changing scenes don't flow and reminded me of very early cinema screenings back in the twenties. A waste of time.
