Rather than confront what it sets up, it takes the one joke and runs -- till it runs out of steam.

Tootsie's finely balanced writing is one of the film's greatest strengths, being consistently funny without ever turning the central premise into a gag.

...a perfect setup for some funny and provocative jabs at women's lib, gender consciousness, equal rights, sexual freedom, as well as soap operas.

It is not just the best comedy of the year; it is popular art on the way to becoming cultural artifact.
