#RogerEbert praised the film, giving it 4 out of 4 stars and observing:
❝Tootsie is the kind of Movie with a capital M that they used to make in the 1940s, when they weren't afraid to mix up absurdity with seriousness, social comment with farce, and a little heartfelt tenderness right in there with the laughs. This movie gets you coming and going...The movie also manages to make some lighthearted but well-aimed observations about sexism. It also pokes satirical fun at soap operas, New York show business agents and the Manhattan social pecking order.❞
On review aggregator #RottenTomatoes , the film has an 89% approval rating.
“If only my life could be more like the movies. I want an angel to swoop down to me like he does to Jimmy Stewart in "It’s a Wonderful Life” and talk me out of suicide. I’ve always waited for that one moment of truth to set me free and change my life forever. but he won’t come. it doesn’t happen that way.“
