classic comedy

A classic comedy, it pioneered a new style in mainstream cinema: lots of subplots, pop allusions, dramatic complications, subversive implications, a happy ending, and marvelous performances by Dustin Hoffman, Jessica Lange, and my favorite, Teri Garr, who isn’t as popular as she could be.

I never get tired of watching this film.

The Graduate Grown Up In A Dress

Outside of When Harry Met Sally, this movie ranks as one that could easily represent the epitomy of the modern romantic comedy.
A good script, with each of the central actors approaching their roles with quality efforts, despite the lightness of the subject matter. This movie has the heart, laughs, chemistry & even a touch of satiric social commetary that matches the rest of the film's th... read more

An average movie

I already saw this movie but since it was a while back, I thought I might as well check it out again. To be honest, I always had some rather mixed feelings about this flick. Indeed, it is supposed to be a massive 80’s classic but I always thought it was fairly entertaining but not much more than that, I’m afraid. Basically, even though it is definitely better than ‘Mrs. Doubtfire’, the con... read more

Michael Dorsey is desperate; he can't find a job. That is, until he gets a female role in a soap opera and becomes very famous. Of course, nobody knows that this new television star is a man... But, after a while, he falls in love with the leading actress of the series, and here is the big problem: how can he express his feelings, since she thinks that Michael is a woman?

Movies the giraffe watched in 2018: January (26 movies items)

"First viewing - Jan. 26th For years I've ignored Tootsie based on assumptions which I'm glad the film proved wrong. I figured it was mainly an excuse to get a man in drag for cheap laughs, but that's certainly not the case. Sure there's humor throughout the film, but it's also a thoughtful look at how men and women treat each other and the lessons we can learn by actually walking in another's shoes. Plus Bill Murray kills it in every scene he's in. I liked it so well I watched both documentarie"

My movie year 2017 (682 movies items)

"26.8. (DVD/Kirjasto) Dustin Hoffman pukeutuu naiseksi ja tekee kaiken paremmin kuin naiset: naispuolisen katseluseurani mukaan hän myös näyttää dragissaan enemmän naiselta kuin Jessica Lange... Turhanpäiväinen komedia, joita on nähty ennenkin ja jonka käänteet, etenkin konsensuksen suhteen, ovat epäuskottavia."

" Notes: To be honest, I always had some rather mixed feelings about this flick. Indeed, it is supposed to be a massive 80’s classic but I always thought it was fairly entertaining but not much more than that, I’m afraid. Basically, even though it is definitely better than ‘Mrs. Doubtfire’, the concept is actually really similar and it is so preposterous, it is actually really difficult to take the whole thing seriously. I mean, is it really believable to think that a guy won’t get any"
