classic comedy

13 years ago at Apr 27 16:43
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

12 years ago at May 3 9:36
Outside of When Harry Met Sally, this movie ranks as one that could easily represent the epitomy of the modern romantic comedy.

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.

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?

Best Picture Nominees (in Ten Sentences) (478 movies items)

""Tootsie" is one of those comedies you have to love, whether you laugh with it or feel empowered by its feminist drive. Michael Dorsey (Dustin Hoffman), a talented but difficult method actor in New York City decides to land a role in a soap opera “Southwest General,” under the persona of Dorothy Michaels. Soon, during his soaring popularity, he makes a friendship with one of the actresses in the show, Julie Nichols (Jessica Lange), while simultaneously producing a play written by his roommat"
