There is no doubt that "Tootsie" is one of the most hilarious films ever. Dustin Hoffman did not win an Academy Award for his performance in this film, but in his career circa 2003, the only performance he gave that was better was in "Rain Man." There are some that are just as good, but only one better. This film obviously would not have been even close to the level that it is without Hoffman's performance. He plays Michael Dorsey, a man who cannot get a job as himself and therefore gets the idea of dressing like a woman, whereupon, he immediately is cast in an American Soap Opera. The complications this brings into his like are practically endless and unexplainable unless one actually watches the film for himself.
