I'm sure this Oscar-winning Mike Nichols film about a capable woman, forced to wile her way up the corporate ladder, was quite groundbreaking for its time, but the big bouffant hairdos, the office pool of secretaries, and the crass Joisey accents just date this movie too much. I could also see the big three-way twist coming from a mile away.

Furthermore, Carly Simon's melodramatic, gospel-inspired, Oscar-winning song, "Let the River Run," - with all its talk about "sons and daughters" and "New Jerusalem" - seems more fitting for a Merchant Ivory movie about a diaspora born of religious persecution or something rather than professional and romantic hijinx.

Captivating workplace comedy follows an ambitious secretary as she attempts to climb the corporate ladder. Plot unfolds like the somewhat timeworn Cinderella story archetype, but brilliantly captures the zeitgeist by updating it to corporate America of the 1980s. Melanie Griffith is an absolute delight in an effervescent performance as Tess McGill, a secretary with "a mind for business and a bod for sin". She's supported by an talented cast that includes Harrison Ford and Sigourney Weaver in equally memorable parts. Classic film director, Mike Nichols, is in top form here and he is ably supported with an witty script by screenwriter Kevin Wade. Sometimes, success is the best revenge.

it surprises me this got low on the stars because i really really enjoyed this film i think really you can put it in the genre of romcom drama because its funny and you see a romance blowup and slowly grow between the underdog and the top dog!
i just think its brilliant the way melenie griffith plays the underdog trying to work her way up the chain but sigorney weaver is the two faced bss who says shes helping but really stealing her ideas
really People can relate to this story of how you work your way up but it comes with all the complications!! its a great powerful and heartened film

Working Girl is one of my favorite comedies...love it! Melanie Griffith was never better and Sigourney Weaver with Harrison Ford were great too.

A receptionist whom is trying her darndest (Griffith) to make it in 80's NYC. She gets a new boss (Weaver) whom is sweet but might be ready to back stab. And then enters the guy to save the day (Ford) whom is there to help Griffith get her day in the spotlight....such a well done film...love Carly Simon's song; "Let the Rive Run" which is the theme song for this movie....everything is soo good!

Funny film, with smart casting. Melanie Griffith, Harrison Ford, Joan Cusack and Sigourney Weaver were SO good, and Kevin Spacey's appearance was awesome (duh, its Kevin Spacey!). Definitely surprised with Griffith's acting, Ford's charisma and Weaver's comic talent. Very good writing.

It's formulaic but Melanie Griffith is wonderful! Despite the gross 80s hair.

Great cast. Movie about a girl who wants to climb the corporate ladder. Melanie had bad hair extensions! Very similar to Secret of My Success.

Inexplicably lauded over rom-com that's mired in 80s class snobbery. Hateful.

Melanie Griffith is superb as the ambitious secretary who discovers that new boss Sigourney Weaver has been passing off her ideas as her own. This is one of the funniest, sharpest and liveliest fairy tales of the decade.

"It's asking for the taking..." From director Mike Nichols comes the satirical office comedy Working Girl. When a skiing accident hospitalizes her boss, ambitious secretary Tess McGill takes her shot at the big time by posing as a broker in order to put together a business deal that her boss had tried to steal from her. Unfortunately the script is rather weak and unfocused, unsure of what kind of comedy it wants to be; romantic, fish-out-of water, etc. Yet enough of it works to make the film entertaining, and the performance by Melanie Griffith, Harrison Ford, and Sigourney Weaver are especially good. Additionally, Carly Simon provides an excellent soundtrack that's quite soulful, and includes the pop hit "Let the River Run" (which is a perfect anthem for the lead character). It's a bit uneven, but Working Girl is fun and has a positive message about following one's dreams.

A very eighties film. Melanie Griffith's character manages to work her way up and win Harrison Ford's heart...all the while being annoying as heck.

[about Jack's chin scar]
Tess McGill: How did you get the scar?
Jack Trainer: Some guy pulled a knife in Detroit.
Tess McGill: Really?
Jack Trainer: No. No. I was nineteen and I thought it'd be cool to have a pierced ear. My girlfriend stuck the needle through and I heard this pop and fainted and hit my chin on the toilet.

'Working Girl' is a humorous look at trying to get to the top. Melanie Griffith (Tess) strives to better herself in life as an ambitious secretary in a large company but when she finds out that her boss (Sigourney Weaver) has stolen her idea for a big business deal, she takes the opportunity to get even by pretending to be her boss.
Along the way she meets an investment broker Jack Trainer (played by the charming Harrison Ford) and falls in love with him never realizing that he is the sweetheart of her bitchy she devil of a boss. Alec Baldwin, Joan Cusack and Kevin Spacey also appear briefly.
This is a terrific film that deals with treachery in the workplace with a great message to society. It shows that you should never give up on your goals because though hard work you can achieve almost anything.

[in the bar]
Tess McGill: I have a head for business and a bod for sin. Is there anything wrong with that?
Jack Trainer: Uh, no. No.

This movie would have received a much higher rating if not for the fairy tale ending, which robs the story of a lot of the realism that is seemed to be shooting for. It still is decent and worth a viewing for the performances. Melanie Griffith gives her only good performance here, but it's the supporting cast of Sigorney Weaver, Joan Cusack, and especially Harrison Ford who are really the best in the movie. Also, Kevin Spacey's five minute scene in the back of a limo with Melanie Griffith's character is very funny.

Could have been a brilliant satire on gender roles in the workplace, instead it's a dull, predictable rom-com.

A movie of firsts that was significant for each of the three principal actors' future career paths. Melanie Griffith gets the part she was born to play as a not-as-dumb-as-she-looks blonde while Sigourney Weaver shows off her icy bitch you love to hate persona for the first time and Harrison Ford proves capable of getting laughs through light comedy. It's fun but all rather safe.
