I turned on TCM tonight to find this movie on. I have had this in my drafts for months. My mom took me and my best friend to see this movie in 1982. Really funny movie with a great cast.
  1. Dustin Hoffman
    Static
    Plays Michael Dorsey or Dorothy Michaels aka Tootsie. A struggling actor who pretends to be a woman to get a part on a popular television soap opera "Southwest General"
  2. Jessica Lange
    Static
    She plays Julie his costar on the soap opera and potential love interest. I love in the final scene when she asks him if she can borrow one of his dresses. She won a best supporting actress Oscar for her role.
  3. Bill Murray
    Static
    He plays his eccentric play writing roommate/friend and accomplice in his scheme. He was actually never credited for the movie and improvised most of his lines.
  4. Teri Garr
    Static
    Plays Michael's friend Sandy who is also a struggling actor. In one hilarious scene she catches Michael half dressed trying on her clothes. To avoid telling her the truth he makes a move on her instead.
  5. Dabney Coleman
    Static
    Plays the classic skirt chasing sexist director of the soap.
  6. Sydney Pollack
    Static
    Plays Michael/Dorothy's agent George Fields perfectly. They have a great scene together in the famous Russian Tea Room in New York City where George first meets Dorothy. Sydney also directed the movie.
  7. Other noteworthy actors
    Giphy
    Geena Davis ( her very first role)Charles Durning and Andy Warhol.
  8. This is a really silly, funny movie from the 80's. Enjoy!
    Special shout out to @NumbahTwo my favorite Dustin 💕💝💕
