...........even though i've seen it a million times.....every time it's on tv it still sucks me in...and here is why I think it does.......

God dang sexy Harrison Ford!.......oh Jack Trainer and your half smiles.
 -

Joan Cusack was a Jersey girl before it was cool!

 -

Weaver was so awful!!! like just awful!
she couldn't push around the dim sum?

 -

some of the best lines.....

"I am not steak....you can not just order me"

"Can I get you anything?, coffee, tea, me?"

"now get your, what did you call it? boney ***.....get your boney *** out of my sight"

I really loved Melanie Griffith and I know some may disagree but when she cuts her hair she was just an 80's fox!

 -

Let the rivvvvvvvvvver ruuuuuuuuuun......who doesn't get up and cheer at the end?........go Tess!!

honestly this song always gets stuck in my head now
The Members- Working Girl even though it's only the title.....

Well I know it's because I grew up with Working Girl........but it always sucks me in every time....it makes me happy and smile.........oh so you all don't agree? not even a little? what are you throwing at me? rotten tomatoes? ha [Big Grin]

Muffy.. I do enjoy "Working Girl" and Melanie Griffith is so very great as Tess. I don't own it, but definitely watch it if I catch it on one of the movie channels.

Great write-up and pics.

What's the famous quote? Something like.. "I have a head for business and a bod for sin".. ha.. maybe

I always like the wacky way she came up with the idea for the merger!

And Joan Cuscack is a scene stealer with those outrageous looks!

"Ya know, sometimes I sing and dance around the apartment in my underwear. Doesn't make me Madonna... never will". [Big Grin]

That is the precise quote. And it is asked by Tess McGill to Jack Trainer in the bar.

Thanks Val! How could I forget the best quote from the movie!! lol and one of the best parts!

Atomik i'm excited to see what you think of it......it's really just a great girlpower movie with lots of 80's greatness. Well maybe not even so much girlpower...but the littleman with brains beats the bitch! yeah! [Smile] love it!

Just watched the movie and it was great!

Damn, Melanie was sexy, never too shy to show her body [Smile]
and i love that BIG 80s hair [Big Grin] [Big Grin]

That short Kevin Spacey scene was hilarious
and the Carly Simon theme tune "Let the River Run" fits like a glove.

This movie is soooo 80s, i love it [Cool] [Cool]

Muffy, have you seen the 12 episode Working Girl tv-series starring Sandra Bullock as Tess McGill?
I would love to see it!

Hey Muffy, this movie is always one I like watching as well.

I'm not a Melanie Griffith fan at all, but she was charming in this one. I do like Harrison Ford's character a lot though! And I had once read that Joan Cusack was nominated for some awards for her role as well, but I never really understood that because to me she didn't do much?

The ending is just the best, from the moment outside the elevator, and on.. [Smile]

[Cool] thread Muffy! Not seen the movie, but the idea of Sigourney Weaver armed with a quiver of pithy one-liners sounds good.

A definite favorite of mine! I've watched it sooo many times. Great movie! I didn't know there was a tv series based on it with Sandra though. I'll have to see if I can find it anywhere. =)
