Loved this movie. Can't believe Mitch hasn't seen it. This is one of those comedy's that IMO is worthy of a best picture Oscar nod.

good cameo by this guy

Agreed. Solid comedy. I too can't believe Mitchy hasn't seen this. It's one of the last movies Robin Williams did that was truly funny.

(PS: Is anyone else having trouble selecting stars for this site?)

Not perfect, but a decent, charming family film. It gives Williams a chance to show off his comedic talents and voices without going overboard, and there were genuine laughs more often than not. Fierstein was great in his limited role too.
Now, I know you're supposed to suspend your disbelief for the film's scenario, and the make-up was very well done, but honestly, I think I'd have little to no trouble picking out my dad in drag no matter how well he was disguised. Perhaps I'm reading too much into this, but I've seen actors up close with latex chins and body suits and all that stuff, and it just doesn't fly.
I suppose you could say the same about 'Tootsie' (an infinitely better film), but again, you have to give the benefit of the doubt if the film itself is half-good. This was better than half-good entertainment, and Williams really carried the role well when it could've easily been very hammy. It was cute and harmless, that's pretty much the bottom line.

What's your rating of this movie?
