Product Description

Product Description

Clever secretary Tess (Melanie Griffith) is constantly frustrated in her attempts to become an executive broker; even her new female boss (Sigourney Weaver) steals her ideas and takes the credit. When the tyrannical boss breaks her leg skiing Tess is left in charge of the office and the canny working girl takes over her boss' portfolio, wardrobe (and boyfriend) with excellent results - until a vengeful Weaver returns. With Harrison Ford.

From Amazon.co.uk

In the ensuing years since Working Girl was released, Harrison Ford has never given such a charming and witty performance, Sigourney Weaver hasn’t been given quite the same kind of scenery-chewing role, and Melanie Griffith simply hasn’t got near doing anything this good again. And yet in Mike Nichols’ excellent romantic comedy, they all gel in a film with eminent rewatch value.

The premise is fairly simple. Griffith’s lowly secretary gets a job with Weaver’s megabitch boss. The former is unhappy at home and work, while the latter is unscrupulous and underhand, and happy to pass off one of Griffith’s good ideas as her own. Yet when Weaver’s character is incapacitated, in steps Griffith, who quickly attracts the professional and personal attention of Ford, as she attempts to navigate her way to the top--until Weaver reappears on the scene…

In lesser hands, all this could become routine Hollywood nonsense, yet here it really clicks. Griffith effectively brokered her career off the back of her performance here, yet all three leads are in fine form, with a strong supporting cast and a delicious script to fall back on. Elements have certainly dated, and the world in many ways has moved on, yet there’s still plenty of room in it for films as good as this one.--Jon Foster

Format: VHS Tape
With these lyrics ringing in your ears, the Staten Island ferry carries Tess (Melanie Griffith) past the Statue of Liberty to her job as a secretary, working in the shadow of the World Trade Center. An unfortunate skiing accident in the Alps befalls her backstabbing boss (played with suitable glee by Sigourney Weaver) giving Tess the opportunity to pose as the high-power broker she yearns to be. But how long can Tess keep up the pretence, especially once she falls in love with Jack (Harrison Ford), the man with whom she is putting together a multi-million dollar deal?
Truly a Pretty Woman for the 80's, this film has big hair, big earrings and big ambition. Special mention must go to Joan Cusack, wonderful as the best friend torn between supporting Tess' dreams and reminding her to keep her feet on the ground:
"Sometimes I sing and dance around in my underwear..It doesn't make me Madonna. Never will."
Harrison Ford plays to type as the decent guy, who undresses the very drunk Tess to avoid damaging her $6000 gown when she gets into bed, reassuring her: "I kept my eyes closed the whole time"
This film has uplifting music, a Cinderella-esque storyline and some great views of New York. Get your girlfriends round, grab some chocs and sing along with Carly Simon. Go on, I dare you to be in a crowd of commuters and not imagine for one minute that you are Tess...

Nearly twenty years on, this film has survived the test of time and exudes maximum effort from Harrison Ford, Melanie Griffith and Sigourney Weaver.They were all at their peak at the time and it shoes. Melanie steals the show as the secretary who has to brave both the frying pan of a male dominated corporate world and the fire namely her idea stealing boss, Sigourney.

Though she isn't as qualified as her ivy league peers, she is just as astute, if not smarter. By playing her own little game, she starts to get noticed to the detriment of her crocked boss. It works but only just..and the Working Girl becomes the Working Boss. I remember a scene where Harrison is on the phone whilst simultaneously trying to remove his shirt...Classic !!! Also the classic tune, Let the River Run.

American Import but region free so will play on UK machines...Absoluetely brilliant movie and melanie Griffiths finest hour and a tour de force comedy performance by Sigourney Weaver. Good blu ray picture quality with deep colours and good detail (some minor grain but this looks quite filmic and natural. 5.1 DTS Master soundtrack that is sevicable and quite of the period.

So much to delight the viewer in this film: Alec Baldwin's hairy chested pigman character, Kevin Spacey snorting coke in the limo as 'Bob from Arbitrage', Oliver Platt's office creep, Joan Cusack's big hair - and that's all in the first 5 minutes!!

Who couldn't fall in love with Melanie Griffith's character? Then Harrison Ford actually doing some acting! And Sigourney Weaver as the bitch. It's too good! Intelligent direction - a postmodern ending. What's going on?

Entertainment with a brain and a heart. Mamma Mia? Pah!

I don't know how believable the story actually is (but is cinema supposed to always be real?), but some of the characters are great, and you'll enjoy watching the build-up and final success of the two heroes, Harrison Ford and Melanie Griffith. The title song is worth the purchase on its own, though!

This is one of my all time favourite films that stands up to repeated viewing, because the action,dialogue and scenarios are so believable/plausible. The ending always gives me goosebumps! I love it.

I enjoyed this film but found it a little bit unremarkable. My mother suggested it and although it is quite a good film I wouldn't say its fantastic, its quite funny and has a good story to it so it was worth a watch.
