About the Movie
Michael Dorsey is a talented actor, but his demanding nature and stubborn temperament have antagonized every producer in New York. Now his agent insists no one will hire him. But Michael needs money - eight thousand dollars to be exact - and to earn it, he's willing to play the role of a lifetime. Dustin Hoffman stars with Jessica Lange, Teri Garr, Dabney Coleman, Charles Durning, Bill Murray and Geena Davis in director Sydney Pollack's heart-filled classic that heralded a new era of Hollywood wig-flipping and set a new standard for unpredictable laugh-out-loud comedy.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Tootsie restores the original meaning to the term 'situation comedy,' free of the pejorative associations that have accrued over the years because of the glut of awful ones on television.
Fresh: It is not just the best comedy of the year; it is popular art on the way to becoming cultural artifact.
Fresh: Remarkably funny and entirely convincing...
Fresh: It turns out to be a touching love story, after all -- so touching that you may be surprised how moved you are at the conclusion of this comedy.
