classic comedy

16 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.

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.

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?

""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"
