An average movie

Basically, it is one of these rather cheesy 80’s flicks and even though I thought it was fairly entertaining, I can’t say I really loved the damned thing. I mean sure, it was all quite watchable, there was a really charismatic cast (Melanie Griffith, Harrison Ford, Sigourney Weaver, Alec Baldwin and even Kevin Spacey in a very small part) but I seriously had a hard time to care about the stor... read more

Working Girl

The shop-girl makes good films gets an update (for the late-80s) in Working Girl. If you look under the hood of this thing, it’s built to last and form a foolproof exterior that runs like a dream. Add in a dash of the battle of the sexes vibrancy from films like Woman of the Year to the mix, and you’ve got the recipe for a crowd-pleasing comedy. It’s pure Cinderella-style fantasy, but there... read more

Description: Melanie Griffith had a fling with stardom in this Mike Nichols comedy about an executive secretary (Griffith) who can't get her deserved shot at upward mobility in the brokerage industry. Hardly taken seriously by male bosses, things aren't really any better for her once she starts working for a female exec (Sigourney Weaver, never more delightful), a narcissist with a boy-toy banker (Harrison Ford) and a tendency to steal the best ideas from her underlings. When Weaver's character is laid up with a broken leg, Griffith poses as a replacement wheeler-dealer, flirting with Ford and working on a new client who doesn't suspect the ... (more)

Movie Reviews (1651-1700) (50 movies items)

" No it is not a film about a prostitute working the streets. It is instead a typical 1980s feminist comedy product of it's time telling about how a young woman has to fight against old work prejudice, sex pressure from a gorgeous man colleague and fighting rivaling women at work (a wicked witch Sigourney Weaver who steals her best ideas and is the best one in the film) in order to get upwards on the working ladder. It probably feels just as relevant for women today but will they think Harrison F"

BradWesley123's Movie Journal- January 2017 (30 movies items)

" Netflix- 1hr. 53min. First Viewing The tone is a bit frazzled, it'll go from slapstick to mild comedy to minor drama and back again, and the story loses steam the longer it goes on, but Working Girl still manages to be a fun and, occasionally, insightful look at female ambition in the work force. The cast is strong, the direction assured and the script, despite the opening criticism, is perceptive. "

Working Girl

“The shop-girl makes good films gets an update (for the late-80s) in Working Girl. If you look under the hood of this thing, it’s built to last and form a foolproof exterior that runs like a dream. Add in a dash of the battle of the sexes vibrancy from films like Woman of the Year to the mix, and you’ve got the recipe for a crowd-pleasing comedy. It’s pure Cinderella-style fantasy, but there’s a core of spunky, can-do dreamer positivity that is quite fetching.   Working Girl tells the story of Tess McGill (Melanie Griffith), a secretary with big dreams and aspirations but the inability to get them accomplished. After getting a new job with a barracuda (Sigourney Weaver, sensational) who appears sunny and supportive, Tess, through a wacky series of circumstances, falls in a duplic” read more
