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

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)

100 Great 'Fun' 80s Movies (100 movies items)

"Mike Nichols' 'Working Girl' is a charming romantic comedy-drama which I only have one problem with... but it's a big problem. I can't stand Melanie Griffith. This is a considerable problem since Griffith is in pretty much every scene of the film and her breathy, ain't-I-cute performance grates on me, which probably accounts for this excellent film being so far down the list. Haughtily and chauvinistically dismissed by some as a "woman's picture", 'Working Girl' is a refreshing look at the world"

"Working Girl proves that when it comes to career ascension, office politics, whether they be straight or crooked, affect the female side as much as the male. More so if the female is wearing a skirt, since it's usually best not to reveal one's unmentionable secrets when climbing the corporate ladder. Today's ambition-driven woman would look smart in something more along the lines of a nice conservative pant suit. "

“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 story. Indeed, it seems that Hollywood has never managed to take office jobs seriously, especially when women are involved, so in the 80's they came up with a bunch of fluffy comedies about the subject. This one is probably the most successful one, financially and critically, and, I have to admit it, it was at least miles better than the rather inane 'Nine to Five'. Still, I had a hard time to care f” read more

" One–hit wonder Melanie Griffith plays the quintessential girl with a dream in this workplace dramedy romance that is still one of the most infectiously empowering movies ever. As a fairly trashy Staten Island secretary who wants more out of life, Tess (Griffith) sees a way to the top at her new job and takes it, much to the chagrin of her opportunistic and scheming boss (a brilliant Sigourney Weaver). Riding on the Staten Island Ferry never felt so amazing and rife with opportunity. Blast th"

"Tässä on näytteljöillä ehkä valtaisimmat kasarikampaukset mitä on vastaan tullut. Ja tuon enempää en nyt jaksa tästä muistellakaan kun jäi kommentin kirjoittaminen niin myöhäiseksi. Tai no, ainakin sitä muistan miettineeni että parhaan elokuvan Oscar-ehdokkaaksi tämä on jopa poikkeuksellisen huttua, kun kyseessä on kuitenkin aika perinteinen romanttinen komedia."
