Tootsie (1982)

Tootsie (45:51)


A recurring AFI theme—a character having to put on an act—is the main theme in T100P #105. Dustin Hoffman wears a wig & a dress, but does the comedy stick the way it did when Jack Lemmon did it in Some Like It Hot? Does this movie hold up over 30 years later? What about the sexual politics and feminist intentions? That + more, but only after you get your Sparkplug Coffee!
