Tootsie

Tootsie (1982)

8 mistakes

Continuity mistake: When Dustin Hoffman (dressed as Dorothy) goes to babysit for Jessica Lange he takes a bunch of flowers as a present. Jessica Lange takes them from him and throws them on the kitchen table. Then she walks into the kitchen (shot from different angle) still holding the flowers and throws them on the table (again).

Continuity mistake: When Hoffman accompanies Teri Garr to the audition for the role he later gets, his hair is obviously shorter (ears showing, etc.) than in the rest of the film.

Continuity mistake: In the scene just before Michael admits his infidelity to Sandy, he lays his wig down on the kitchen table. Later, the wig disappears from the table though neither Michael nor Jeff had removed it.

Factual error: I work for a television channel in 'daytime serial' production and I can assure you that no actor is going to secure a recurring speaking role in a soap opera unless a comprehensive insurance policy has been secured. (This applies to feature films, too.) This will inevitably involve a medical examination. I'm afraid Mr Dorsey's plans are going to become dreadfully unstuck the minute he drops his y-fronts in the doctor's surgery. (No, he can't find a compliant or bribeable doctor - the insurance company will always use their own people.).

Continuity mistake: During the conversation between Dustin Hoffman and Sidney Pollack in the beginning, Sidney points to the table with his left hand and says "I'm supposed to field offers" but in the next angle, he points with his right hand.

Continuity mistake: For the first few scenes of Tootsie, Dustin Hoffman looks like he had his eyebrows plucked. Maybe they filmed those scenes later.

Continuity mistake: When Jessica Lange has Dustin Hoffman over to her place for dinner, she is wearing sweats and her hair is in a ponytail. But in one shot, where she is mixing food in a bowl with her hands, she has on a T-shirt and jeans, and her hair is in a French braid. In the following scenes, she is back in sweats and the ponytail.

Add time

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Michael is about to tell Sandy that he loves someone else the clock behind them is about 12:30. About a minute later when she screams the clock behind them is now after 1:00.
