Tootsie 1982

From Amazon: One of the touchstone movies of the 1980s, Tootsie stars Dustin Hoffman as an out-of-work actor who disguises himself as a dowdy, middle-aged woman to get a part on a hit soap opera. The scheme works, but while he/she keeps up the charade, Hoffman's character comes to see life through the eyes of the opposite sex. The script by Larry Gelbart (with Murray Schisgal) is a winner, and director Sydney Pollack brings taut proficiency to the comedy and sensitivity to the relationship nuances that emerge from Hoffman's drag act. Great supporting work from Teri Garr, Dabney Coleman, Charles Durning, Bill Murray, and pre-stardom Geena Davis....

Tootsie Movie Review by Movie Addict (12/23/2013)

It was 31 years ago last week that Dustin Hoffman reminded us that beauty is not the only thin that makes women attractive. The comedy, which received 10 Academy Award nominations, did more than make people laugh, though it made them think.

Tootsie's feminism is equivalent to Avatar's respect for native culture.

Tootsie Movie Review by Jarrod (5/29/2008)

'Tootsie' is a delightful gender-bender comedy; better than Mrs. Doubtfire, but then it focuses less on slapstick and more on intelligent dialogue and endearing characters, and it has more potent thematic content, addressing the chauvinistic nature of the professional world, where men tend to dominate, and women are not...

Tootsie Movie Review by Zara (4/8/2007)

You know what? I don't really like this movie. It was a big sensation when it was first released, and I remember being a kid at that time and watching the movie. My memory of it was that it was a very funny film.

However, when I got older and watched it again, I didn't like it. It's slow, the pace of the film plodding...

Tootsie Movie Review by Melanie (3/18/2007)

I adore Dustin Hoffman. I think he is one of the best actors of our time. He is so versitile and real. I thought he was amazing in this movie. I believed him every second of the way. He was wonderful. He is also the reason I gave stars.

Having said this, the movie sucked. The plot was really weak and the other...

Tootsie Movie Review by Jesse (3/18/2007)

One of the greatest comedies of the 80s and all-time, this film is as inspirational as it is hilarious. Directed by the great Sydney Pollack, this film is one of the most popular films of 1982 earning around $177 million at the box office and also earning ten Academy Award nominations.

I can't praise Dustin Hoffman...
