'Victor Victoria' vs. 'Tootsie'

Year: 1982 Premise: Out-of-work entertainers resort to cross-dressing to find work. The Verdict: Though both movies had the same premise, they nicely mirrored each other in that "Tootsie" was Dustin Hoffman as a woman, while "Victor Victoria" was Julie Andrews as a man who was a female impersonator. Both were successful and received several Oscar noms. Draw. -- Andrea Reiher, Zap2itInternet Fair Use
