Quotes

Tara Ricotto: Hello Vincey, it's me, Tara... guess what? Javi and Buzz just had a huge fight. According to Javi it was more dramatic than Gone with the Wind. So, let me tell you exactly how he told me, but ya have to swear not to tell anyone. Get ready for this Vincey, cause I know it's going to be a real shocker, but they are arguing about H... I... V, big surprise, right? Buzz, he pulled another Larry Kramer with Javi's doctor, so Javi's all and then Buzz is all and that's when Javi goes and they are going...

The Birdcage and Philadelphia aren't the only good 'gay' film out there
4 December 2004 | by (The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Maybe I'm a bit presumptuous in marking this one as a gay film, but since the majority of the characters is in fact gay I choose to do so anyway and I really do not mean anything more than: this is a film mainly about gay people! Now the beginning of the film really is how I imagined how the whole film would be, giving the audience a somewhat comedic look on sex and human nature. Gradually I found out that this was a different sort of film though and I must say that I really was amazed by how well the film turned from comedy, to seriousness, to drama. There are not too many films out there that are able to get from a really funny scene like the intro to such a dramatic last scene, without something seeming odd or misplaced, yet this film did. I mean I really felt as if I was changing alongside the characters on the screen and in the end I was amazed at what I'd seen. There was comedy, there was drama, there were thrills and everything was so realistic that you'd have to have a heart of stone not to be touched by it - except for the conservative maybe ;-)!
