News & Interviews for The Secret of My Success
Critic Reviews for The Secret of My Success
The movie builds up a lot of good will early on, which is needed when the time comes to resolve its farcical complications.
Does the movie really believe anyone is as stupid as these characters? Does it care?
Obviously, no new ground is being broken here, but director Ross keeps things humming in an endearingly old-fashioned way.
The 1980s were not a particularly inspired era, so it's appropriate that a middling romantic comedy like this one would earn the title of quintessential movie of the decade.
Audience Reviews for The Secret of My Success
Not the greatest 80's movie, but it has its moments. I did hate Helen Slater's hair and clothes in this. The auntie definitely out glamoured her!
A classic 80s movie with Michael J. Fox at his finest. The idea of this movie is as good in execution as it seems on paper, actually probably a lot better than it looks on paper. Whether it's the odd, slightly incestuous relationships or the orchestra of sex, there's never really any dull moments in this at all. The main story is hard not to get into, mainly because it's so funny to see Michael J. Fox running around trying to be two people at once. Obviously if you hate 80s comedies this isn't something you should see because it features all the classic qualities of the decade. Featuring "Oh Yeah" by Yello no less than two times and having a soundtrack number every for minutes kind've shows you how fast paced and kooky this can get at times.
A yuppie trying to rise up to the top has his life complicated by love. This is a great 80s flick, very funny and very timely. Fox is great as usual, and so is Slater. I really like this movie, and I recommend seeing it.
