80's GoldBy a customer from London , 25 Oct 2008The hair, the hair, the hair......oh my god the hair!!!
But seriously, well worth watching.
Just badBy a customer from England , 09 Oct 2008I wanted to watch this movie for quite a while. I'm not a fan of Melanie Griffiths but i do like Joan Cussack who has a supporting role here.
Its just a bad dated '80s film with a god awful soundtrack featuring the usually good Carly Simon.
It was just very dissapointing and really not what i was expecting.
Nice!By PottyMouth (32 reviews) from newcastle-u-lyme , 25 Aug 2008This film is cheerful, comfortable- and, of course, features a young Harrison Ford...
Few laughsBy a customer from London , 11 Aug 2008I've never understood why Melanie Griffiths quote 'I have a head for business and a bod for sin' became such a famous quote. It bugged me as its not a real sentence and its not funny yet had people rolling around with laughter. Maybe it was wasted on a 14 year old and anyone else I've ever spoken to about it which could be because this is one of those films aimed at a demographic that don't usually go to the cinema, women over 30, and it gets milked for all its worth. Things are different today and cinema has a much wider audience than it did in the 80s and modern versions of Working Girl are infinitely more sophisticated and stylish. If released now it would be a critical and commercial failure.
Working Girl is a simple film of one dimensional characters, unfunny gags held together by the leads who manage to drag this film kicking and screaming into respectibility by their very good but very few scenes. It lacks any complexity and for that reason you may also find yourself mildly enjoying it. Partly for nostalgia and partly for the bits with Harrison Ford.
Excellent; Best Girl On TopBy CashOnTheNail (130 reviews) from Manchester , 09 Jul 2008
THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS Show review anywayHideEnterprising Melanie Griffith [Milk Money] earned her degree the hard-way at night-school, she is still passed-over for promotion despite her outstanding abilities.
Taking a secretarial job with younger boss Sigourney Weaver [Galaxy Quest] she tries to better herself by submitting a business plan for consideration by hot-shot Harrison Ford [Air Force One], in turn paranoid current project will fail beyond his control leading to dismissal [kinda-like job-market today]
