I enjoyed the nice weather over the long weekend by going biking yesterday. I also watched Tootsie for the first time last night. I know, I am behind the times. I appreciated that the movie did not wallow in the need to express how crazy women are for taking so much time getting ready and wearing restrictive clothing. I liked that Dustin Hoffman’s character starts to realize the ways women are treated differently. The movie makes a point to highlight all of the inanities women put up with from the men in their lives. Plus is was hilarious at the most unexpected of moments: When Jeff (Murray) walks into the apartment and sees Dorothy (Hoffman) with Van Horne (George Gaynes) and says, “You slut.” Perfect.
