Working Girl Reviews
I haven't seen it for quite some time, so I was happy to find the DVD for $6.
I have to admit, it did not age quite as well as I thought. That is some spectacularly bad hair on Melanie Griffiths, even by 80's standards.
There's a lot I still like about this movie - strong young woman bettering herself and working her way out of the typing pool, and moving on from a cheating sleaze who doesn't treat her well, but through adult eyes, I really didn't like that she still actually did need the help of the man to get there.
And I had a few cynical smiles at the "happy ending". Day in day out at the office - it may not be all it's cracked up to be!
Nearly 27 years old, this movie still holds up, though slightly dated. But seeing the young, trim, nearly-naked gorgeous Alec Baldwin makes it all the worthwhile!
not a Harrison Ford movie per-se but still a wacky look at business and mixing it with social living
Melanie Griffith is a so-serious woman looking for a promotion in the line of Wall Street and her boss played by the awesome Weaver gives her enough guidance to make it big
but after running into a handsome executive things start to escalate sometimes uncomfortably and hilariously
but Griffith gets in too over her head when she pitches an idea she came up with that's not hers
the cool thing about the movie is that she takes a big risk pining for a dream job
and she points out the stress of making it to the top
she is the ultimate 'working girl' as it were juggling a double-life with this charming man and pretending to be her own boss
the 1980's was the age of circuit boards and Griffith proves it's a challenge to get by
a modernized 'Cinderella' tale along the lines of 'Pretty Woman' and many others that so funny and sharp
