Episode 111: "TOOTSIE"



A Hoffman classic!








Dustin Hoffman has had a long and illustrious career from Ratso Rizzo to Rain man


- but MG argues that one of his best performances is actually in one of his silliest movies - Sydney Pollack's classic comedy from 1982, Tootsie!


"I beg you to get Therapy""

from Some Like it Hot to Mrs. Doubtfire - and many, for obvious reasons, have become pretty cringeworthy watches in modern times.





But MG argues that Sydney Pollack's classic 1982 comedy Tootsie





Starring Dustin Hoffman as Dorothy Michaels -





While still 80's-dated in many ways - actually remains a powerfully empathic work of great depth and humanism - while still delivering on its slapstick conceit!









MG takes on Tootsie!
