Come as you are.

In this hysterical comedy, Armand and Albert have built the perfect life for themselves tending to their gaudy Miami nightclub. But their pastel tranquility is shaken when Armand’s son announces that he’s getting married to the daughter of ultra-conservative Senator Keeley… and they’re all getting together for dinner! Can Armand and Albert transform themselves into Mr. and Mrs. Family Values in time? It’ll take the performance of their lives!

Did you know?

  • Hank Azaria realized after filming that he had actually based his voice on his grandmother’s.
  • Mike Nichols required that Nathan Lane and Robin Williams filmed at least one good take of each scene sticking to the script before he would allow them to improvise (something both of the actors are known for).
  • Robin Williams’s slip and fall during the shrimp scene was not planned. Robin Williams really fell, and he, Hank Azaria, and Dan Futterman are holding back laughter.
  • Director Mike Nichols had to be covered by a sound blanket during the toast scene because he was laughing too loud.
