Tootsie - 1982 ****
What a hilarious film.
Dustin Hoffman plays an unemployed actor who has a bad reputation in the business and realises that the only way he is going to get on television is if he disguises himself... as a woman!
Dustin Hoffman is almost unrecognisable as 'Dorothy' the wise-cracking and sharp talking character from the hospital soap opera who won't take any nonsense from anyone.
Jessica Lange plays his love interest who is blissfully unaware of the mixed-gender issue and sees 'Dorothy' as an amazing friend.
Brilliant movie, I was in stitches many times!
