Its deft handling of feminist issues make it all the more ironic that it has been dismissed as trivial when in many ways it's the female equivalent of Wall Street.

How will the working class be educated to survive and thrive in the computer age? This intoxicating movie has an answer: let her strut her outer-borough wisdom from Wall Street to the Pacific Rim. Watch her fatten portfolios as she melts hearts.

Working Girl is enjoyable largely due to the fun of watching scrappy, sexy, unpredictable Melanie Griffith rise from Staten Island secretary to Wall Street whiz.

A top-drawer romantic comedy with all the right ingredients in place.

In Mike Nichols' fairy tale about the workforce, Melanie Griffith gives a charming performance as an absued scretary who decides to take charge of her life and in the process also gets the lover of her bitchy boss (well played by Sigourney Weaver).

The film lobbies passionately for Tess's agency, intelligence, and shrewd business-sense and yet still manages to find time to ogle her "bod for sin."

The interaction between the female leads is so funny that you don't care if the leading man never turns up.

Uma fábula engraçadinha e bem dirigida, o filme traz Harrison Ford e Sigourney Weaver em ótima forma - mas é inacreditável que Melanie Griffith tenha sido indicada ao Oscar por um desempenho tão convencional.
| Original Score: 4/5

Working Girl, always fun even when at its most frivolous, has the benefit of the cinematographer Michael Ballhaus's sharp visual sense of board room chic, and of supporting characters who help carry its class distinctions beyond simple caricature.
| Original Score: 4/5
