Sydney Pollack directing. Dustin Hoffman starring. Jessica Lange, Terri Garr, Dabney Coleman, Geena Davis and Bill Murray supporting. What more do you need. If you can't enjoy this classic just quit watching movies altogether.

Don't remember seeing the full film before.
Perhaps I would have thought about it differently then, but now it was a bit sweet and very nostalgic (the music, the colours in decor and clothing) a film with good point, no swearing, nice acting and 80s fashions.

Hoffman is very entertaining.

Another reason why I despise Dustin Hoffman and the schmaltzy movies he starred in; "The Graduate", "Tootsie", "Kramer vs. Kramer" just rock bottom in terms of quality cinema in comparison to most of the films from the UK. Just a craven pursuit of money, the ends apparently justify the means with regard to Mr. Hoffman. He doesn't "act" in a meaningful way but plays himself to the amusement of unthinking people and minds filled with trivial pursuits and cheap thrills. Garbage, tripe, hollow and meaningless programming without any redemptive qualities. The next time I am looking for better films I will look elsewhere--"The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" is even preferable!!!

A movie about actors and actresses wanting to be taken seriously, with a strong feminist subtext for its time. Makes sense that this is the movie that put Lange on the map. She put pure empathic passion into her character of Julie that was almost palpable and quite memorable. Dustin Hoffman deals with his character with grace and slips into his character like a glove. Bill Murray like usual steals every scene. Its hard to miss something like that thats oozing charisma. Some moments can be a bit sappy in this film but it's all too heartfelt and real. When Dustin in Dorothy drag tells the director that her name is non "Tootsie" its Dorothy, it strikes a ringing feeling of empathy for what women have to go through in the work place. A very important piece of cinema.

I saw 'Mrs. Doubtfire' for the first time earlier this year and I really enjoyed it. 'Tootsie' is very similar and is the predecessor to the Robin Williams comedy film. Both have very similar plot lines and similar obstacles to overcome but what makes this film different is the comedy style. 'Mrs. Doubtfire' has lots of physical comedy and is very fast. Tootsie's comedy comes from clever witty dialogue between the characters. Dustin Hoffman plays a great Dorothy Michaels and has lots of laughs. Overall, 'Tootsie' or 'Mrs. Doubtfire' are great films to add to your collection

Hah! you thought pretending to be a woman would get you some extra cash and an inner view to titties and luscious lumps? well, think again!. Welcome to the life of harassment, stalkers, offensive marriage offers from pervs, under appreciation, lack of respect and suggested rape to keep your life going, and you can't talk about it because you have to keep your job.
You get to see Dustin Hoffman's big ass nose cover the screen for quite some time!.

A laugh riot of an instant classic, "Tootsie" is comically quirky and thematically smart.

Charming and with a lot to say, Sydney Pollack's "Tootsie" marks a high point in the careers of Dustin Hoffman, Jessica Lange, and everyone else involved.

Tootsie is often very funny and the cast of Hoffman, Lange & Murray is outstanding. It may be a tad overrated, but still great for an occasional watch.

A masterpiece. Not only my favorite comedy of all time, but one of my top 10 favorite films EVER. Everyone should see it. EVERYONE.

Tootsie is nowadays a bit dated in its depiction of sexes and it is never as funny as it should have been, but its humor does provide some memorable moments and the premise is very smart and authentic if the movie never quite uses it to its full extent. But the character development is superb, the approach is realistic, the plot is always engaging, the conclusion is genius, the pacing is polished and the acting is top-notch with above all Dustin Hoffman being the standout here in a difficult role proving once again how he's a force to be reckoned with and one of the finest actors ever to grace the silver screen.

Tootsie transcends its gimmick and delivers on a lot of wry jokes.

Loved watching Tootsie and Dustin Hoffman is wonderful as Michael/Dorothy. Tootsie is an endearing and touching comedy drama that pokes fun of sexism and the world of acting with its tenderness. A genuinely charming film.

One of the iconic films or should I say roles for Dustin Hoffman, Tootsie is an interesting look at the gender politics as well as the arduous task of the audition process for an generic actor is a sea of thousands the lengths he would go to in order to stand out in a crowd and land the role to get some cash. Little does he know when he shows up in drag and sells Dorothy to the soaps and lands the role of a lifetime out of it and has to continue to sell his lies. There are some great laughs and solid acting, helped out by a great supporting cast including Teri Garr, Sydney Pollack and Geena Davis. Suffers slightly from being slightly dated in its perception of gender politics and being a common trope of putting a funny man in drag (Mrs Doudtfire hit some similar ideas) but otherwise good for what it is.

Dustin Hoffmann is hilarious as a down on his luck actor who decides to dress as a woman and get a part in a soap opera.

Made In A Time When Drag Was Funny & Comedy Gags Were Cheap. This One Doesn't Age Well At All.
March 16, 2015
Carried almost entirely by Dustin Hoffman's performance, Tootsie succeeds as a dramedy, romance, and commentary on modern-day gender relations.
