Working Girl

This week on Ten Movies:

Though we know him more for action and adventure roles, Harrison Ford has been known to try his hand at a romantic comedy or two. Turns out that craggy handsomeness and twinkle-eyed charm are just as useful for wooing the ladies as it is for fending off space aliens.

In ‘Working Girl’, Melanie Griffith plays a gritty outer-borough striver who decides to perpetrate identity fraud to get ahead in the business world, which she has to do because Sigourney Weaver is a mean boss. Amid these shenanigans, she meets Harrison Ford, and they decide to team up – in mergers AND acquisitions if you catch our drift.

Brian and Hemal thoroughly enjoyed ‘Working Girl’ as a well-constructed late 80s gem, though we could not help but remark upon the many ways in which class and gender politics have shifted since it was released. Also, the hair and the shoulder pads, sweet merciful Jesus.
