Tootsie

The whole movie is *just* fine.  The acting is fine, although if I am being honest I thought Hoffman was pretty mediocre in certain scenes when he was being himself.  I take it back – Terri Garr is fantastic, but she is fantastic in anything she is in.  I don’t understand how this is considered to be a classic in many circles.
