The Breakdown of 'Tootsie'


For the second straight week, The Movie Breakdown is going to be hanging out in the 1980s and reviewing what many hold up as a classic. This time it was a giant box office hit that was geared towards adults rather than kids, and it was billed as a romantic comedy. We are going to dig deep into the Dustin Hoffman starring comedy about s male actor who poses as a woman in order to land work, Tootsie. It is not only a comedy that many hold up as one of the all-time great movies, but it was also very influential on future comedies and even dramas. We explore what made it such a hit, but also what makes it a bit different than the movies that followed it. It is all about the 'Tootsie this week.

As always, we had a great time recording this show and we really hope you love it. If you do, please helps us out by spreading the word on social media, so other movie fans can find us.
