Rating:
R
Working Girl features a star-studded lineup and Oscar nominated performances in this 1988 film. Tess McGill (Melanie Griffith) is a corporate secretary with a degree in Business and a dream to make something more of her life. When she finds herself working for the seemingly kind and considerate Katharine Parker (Sigourney Weaver), she thinks that his could finally be her big break into the executive world. It quickly becomes apparent that this is not the case, as Tess discovers that the duplicitous Katharine has been taking her ideas for herself. Katharine plans to use all of Tess' ideas to negotiate a massive merger with another company. Tess will have to use every ounce of her wit and charm to keep Katharine from stealing her ideas and making a name for herself. Directed by Mike Nichols and featuring Harrison Ford, Joan Cusack, and Alec Baldwin, Working Girl remains a classic to this day.

    Chicago Sun-Times Roger Ebert

    One of those entertainments where you laugh a lot along the way, and then you end up on the edge of your seat at the end.

    The New York Times Elvis Mitchell

    The film, like its heroine, has a genius for getting by on pure charm. [21 Dec 1988]

    Variety

    This is not a laugh-out-loud film, though there is a lighthearted tone that runs consistently throughout, Griffith's innocent, breathy voice being a major factor.
