Let's solve the riddle: Sandra is right and of course she gets the potholders. The comedy movie, made 1996,  is "Birdcage", a hilarious plot about Armand, a gay cabaret owner (Robin Williams) and Albert, his drag queen "wife" (Nathan Lane), who agree to put up a charade so that their son can introduce them to his fiance's parents (Gene Hackman, Dianne Wiest), who are into politics. And Agador Spartacus, performed by Hank Azaria, is the flamboyant and overly funny gay housekeeper, who has to be the butler and cook for the evening. He never wears shoes, because they make him fall down, he also can not cook, but somehow manages to prepare "Guatemalean Peasant Soup", with shrimps and hard boiled eggs for the guests. A wonderful movie full of action, which will make you laugh and want to watch it again, and once more!

Definitely have to watch this one again !
To be honest, I don't deserve the potholders as I was not correct in my answer. So I will have to take a new challenge Yael to deserve them !

Of course you deserve them Sandra and you will get them!

Guten Morgen Yael,
ich muß gestehen, daß ich den Film nicht kenne.
Aber alleine der Ausschnitt, den ich dank deines Links gesehen habe, macht neugierig auf mehr und hat mir bereits ein lustiges Lachen entlockt.

Liebe Grüße von Birgit

I missed the last post, Yael, but your selection of potholders is fabulous, they all look lovely and colourful.
Congratulations to Sandra :)
And a happy weekend to you :)

Ha! I saw this in Florida with my Mom (I missed the last post, too, otherwise I would have guessed!) I laughed so hard I almost fell down--wah-hah-hah!

Congratulations Sandra!

I have seen an older version of The Birdcage, and thought it was a wonderful premise for a movie! Congratulations to the pot holder winner! Well done :)Another winning post Yael!! xxoo

The pot holders are all beautiful. And as far as the Birdcage goes, I love that movie. Have watched it several times over the years and it's just as funny as watching it the first time. I think Robin Williams was brilliant!
