Reviews
Mine: Great film. Gets the reality of being an actor just right. Wonderful romance in a very different way. Great performances all around. Dustin is top notch. Powerful in it's overall effect. One of the funniest climax's ever!
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Smashing comedy about an obnoxious N. Y. actor who finally lands a job--disguised as a woman--and soon finds himself a better person female than he ever was male! Farcical premise becomes totally credible thanks to razor-sharp script (credited to Larry Gelbart and Murray Schisgal, from Gelbart and Don McGuire's story), fine direction, and superlative performances all around--including director Pollack's as Hoffman's harried agent. Lange won Best Supporting Actress Oscar. Bill Murray's performance was unbilled in film. Film debut of Geena Davis. Panavision.
