What a delight. Dustin Hoffman is a revelation as Dorothy, the woman he pretends to be to further himself as an actor – but he’s no less impressive as Michael, the passionate actor so dedicated to his craft.  His on-screen arguments with Sydney Pollack, who also directed this film, are classic. And Bill Murray, Jessica Lange, Geena Davis, Dabney Coleman, Teri Garr, Charles During – all of them add something special to this breezy, witty comedy, which has heart as well as laughs. Larry Gelbart co-wrote the screenplay, so that’s no surprise.
