YMMV / Tootsie

  • One-Scene Wonder: Well, technically a Two-Scene Wonder; Geena Davis (in her film debut) as the sexy, underwear-clad costar sharing Dorothy's dressing room.
  • Retroactive Recognition:
    • One of Geena Davis' earliest roles as "Dorothy"'s castmate.
    • A pre-Golden Girls Estelle Getty has a bit part as one of the couples seen dancing late in the film, and is pretty recognizable.
  • True Art Is Incomprehensible: In-universe, this is very much Jeff's philosophy towards his playwriting.
    Jeff: I don't like it when people come up to me after my plays and say, "I really dug your message, man." Or, "I really dug your play, man, I cried." You know. I like it when people come up to me the next day, or a week later, and they say, "I saw your play. What happened?"
