The Wisecrack crew is joined by Reilly Anspaugh to talk Mike Nichols' THE BIRDCAGE (1996)! We get into the context of what dates this film, how comedies are evolving over time, the brilliant performances, typecasts, Mike Nichols being a genius - we haven't done a comedy in a while, and we loved this talk. Enjoy!!
