Time Out Melbourne

This event has finished

"You are psychotic!" "No, I'm not, I'm employed!" Sydney Pollack's hit comedy about an actor who cross-dresses to become a soap star boasts maybe Dustin Hoffman's best performance – except for playing Lisa's teacher on The Simpsons. Underrated Teri Garr – you know her as Phoebe's mom from Friends – is terrific too, and Bill Murray steals scenes as Hoffman's slobbish flatmate. Go along and see why all the screenwriting manuals use Tootsie as a prime example of how to write comedy. Starts at sundown.
