Ah yes, this movie definately takes me back to the golden years of the big Eighties, where the hair was big, the Japanese were buying Rockefeller Plaza, the Care Bears were flying off the store shelves faster than HBO could produce episodes of 'Fraggle Rock', UB-40 was cleaning up the music charts, and the corporate traders reigned supreme. This film is a nostalgia-trip that is very enjoyable to watch. Sigourney Weaver has an excellent role as the psuedo-villian career witch who sabotages others to further indulge her quintessential 80s yuppie lifestyle. Harrison Ford plays the excellent, swarmy corporate sleaze. Other outstanding performances are Alec Baldwin as the cheesy, white trash boyfriend and, of course, Melanie Griffith as the 'De Vry - we're serious about success' working class-'we-going-to-be-successful-cause-we-work-hard' gal. This movie is dripping with the conspicuous consumption and materialism of the 1980s. I guess in 1988 the definition of success would be defined by expensive Swiss ski trips, a corner office in a top floor of the World Trade Center (preferably the one farthest away from a stair exit in order to enjoy the peace and harmony of the NYC skyline), your very own TSO dummy terminal with a monitor the size of Montana, lots of junk bonds in your portfolio, and your very own exercise bike. Overall, this is a very good film that has a feel-good message worthy of Reader's Digest.

'Working Girl' is a classic. The villian, Ms. Weaver, is both deliciously evil as well as scarily realistic. Harrison Ford is excellent as the white knight, with a good mix of Wasp entitlement and sweaty armpits. This is before his acting slid to just staring lost at the screen for various lengths of time to convey different emotions. The movie brings me to the verge of tears at least three times and the ending is beautiful. The soundtrack, featuring Carly Simon and the St. Thomas boys choir, is sublime. When 'Let the River Run' hits as the camera pulls away from Melanie within her new office in the World Trade Center you can only wish that life is that fair.

This little gem came out in 1988 and boy does the hair scream that from the rooftops! You can't tell from the DVD cover but Melanie's hair for the first half of the movie is typical Jersey Girl, teased bangs up to the sky and the sides stick out so far she could give Dumbo a run for his money. This is one of my favorite movies from the 80's and I watch it more than I should. These were the days when Harrison Ford was still sexy, Melanie Griffith was the sweet "It" girl, and Sigourney Weaver was at the top of her game. From The Back Cover: Nominated for 6 Academy Awards, director Mike Nichol's witty, romantic look at life int he corporate jungle stars MELANIE GRIFFITH as Tess McGill, an ambitious secretary with a unique approach for climbing the ladder to success. When her classy, but villainess boss (SIGOURNEY WEAVER) breaks her leg skiing , Tess simply takes over her office, her apartment, even her wardrobe. She then creates a deal with a handsome investment banker (HARRISON FORD) that will either taker her straight to he top-or finish her off for good. Now what that synopsis doesn't tell you is that Tess is just getting paybacks on her boss. Sigourney deserves everything she gets in this movie and it's so much fun to watch. From crashing weddings to holding meetings Tess does everything she can to close the deal and get the man.

I just saw this movie for the first time, and found it fun and refreshing. Like many 80s movies, this one had a simple but appealing plotline that appealed to the masses. Though a bit of a stretch at times--what kind of woman finds boyfriend in bed with another woman and then hugs and smiles with him a few days later at a party?--it was nice to sit back and just watch a movie that didn't strain my brain.

I saw Working Girl many years ago for the 1st time and immediately fell in love with the movie. Yes, it's a definite chick flick but have seen it at least 50x since then. I bought the VHS tape many years ago and recently purchased the DVD. The soundtrack is outstanding, the acting is wonderful (let's not forget Joan Cusack and even Nora Dunn!) This was one of Melanie Griffiths best movies I think. She achieves things in this movie most of us can only dream of. Yes, I know the movie by heart, but so what?? Harrison Ford is awesome in this too, and oh so handsome! The hair is definite 80's, as is the clothes, but all can be overlooked easily enough. A definite keeper, I know this entire movie by heart and still watch it!! The most heartwrenching thing is the many shots of the Twin Towers, from the opening scene of the movie to the closing credits. I found myself in total tears the 1st time I watched the movie after 9-11. It is amazing how much those particular scenes mean to me now.
