Dustin Hoffman stars as Dorsey, a dedicated actor with a reputation for being difficult. Having antagonised every producer in New York nobody will hire him. But Michael is desperate for work, so desperate he's willing to pretend to be a woman. Passing himself off as 'Dorothy Michaels' he lands himself a part on a TV Soap Opera and soon becomes a national phenomenon. But when he falls for the leading lady of the show things get complicated.

A Great All Round Film - Tootsie review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
06/03/2007

I love this film! It’s one of those rare gems that my whole family will choose to watch together ad everyone will love every minute.

Dustin Hoffman (as does the rest of the cast) delivers a fantastic performance. Its a perfect comedy with elements of romance and drama that come together to create a spell bounding, timeless, hilarious comedy that the whole will treasure.
