An average movie

6 years, 1 month ago at Sep 8 15:34
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

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.

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. "
