Meep Pic Of The Week: Tootsie (1982)

Tootsie 
A Columbia Pictures Release 
Original Release date: December 17th, 1982
DVD Release: Yes

I heart Tootsie. Other than having a terrible score (But what 80's movie didn't?) this movie has aged beautifully. Dustin Hoffman gives the best performance of his career.... Two even. The movie is funny, poignant and always entertaining. There are very few movies in my book specifically about actors and their process that can pull of being fun while being so "inside". Tootsie gets it all right and is one of the best studio comedies of the decade.

Forget about Gandhi... Toosie was my hero in 1982. Check out this wacky posters of the era from the former eastern bloc:

"Hey who do you think you are? Tootsie?" I can't help, but think of Just One of the Guys when I see Tootsie.

Tootsie, an 80s movie that I have never seen.
