REVIEWS:





"[Director Sydney] Pollack and the writers of ['Tootsie']...have taken
a wildly improbable situation and found just about all of its comic
possibilities, not by exaggerating the obvious, but by treating it with
inspired common sense. .... Every member of the cast is splendid. .... 'Tootsie'...is the best thing that's yet happened at this year end.
It's a toot, a lark, a month in the country."

-- Excerpt from The New York Times; December 17, 1982







"Tootsie is the kind of Movie with a capital M that they used to make
in the 1940s, when they weren't afraid to mix up absurdity with
seriousness, social comment with farce, and a little heartfelt tenderness
right in there with the laughs. This movie gets you coming and going. ....
'Tootsie' has a lot of fun with its plot complications; we get almost every
possible variation on the theme of mistaken sexual identities. The movie
also manages to make some lighthearted but well-aimed observations about
sexism. .... And it turns out to be a touching love story...so touching that
you may be surprised how moved you are at the conclusion of this comedy."

-- Roger Ebert; December 17, 1982
