About the Movie
Can a kid from Kansas come to New York to conquer the business world and maneuver his way from the mailroom to the boardroom in a matter of weeks? Michael J. Fox proves it can be done in this very funny lampoon of corporate business life. Fresh out of college, he's determined to climb New York's corporate ladder in record time by masquerading as an up-and-coming executive, even though he's really the new mail boy. However, Fox's plans begin to go awry when the boss's wife falls in love with him and he falls in love with a junior executive, who also happens to be the boss's mistress.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: The movie builds up a lot of good will early on, which is needed when the time comes to resolve its farcical complications.
Fresh: Obviously, no new ground is being broken here, but director Ross keeps things humming in an endearingly old-fashioned way.
Rotten: [A] belabored charade of mistaken identities...
Rotten: Does the movie really believe anyone is as stupid as these characters? Does it care?
I'm glad to see that iTunes finally added this. It's a great movie. I'm surprised that the preview doesn't have any music or a voice over. It would have been great to hear the song, "Walking on Sunshine" by Katrina and The Waves as part of the preview. The song plays when Michael J. Fox's character gets a a feel for what it's like to be a "suit." I recommend buying this, but if renting is what you prefer, go for it. Either way, it's a great movie.
Classic 1980s, Michael J. Fox Movie
I actually owned this DVD but was stolen, so I was definitely relived to see that iTunes had it available for purchase. This movie is awesome! How his character busts into the corporate world, having ambition, the smarts, the drive and hard work to succeed actually inspires me to acheive every time I watch this. This movie was cast perfectly, and Michael J. Fox is great in this movie. On top of that it has a great soundtrack from the 80s and it compliments whats going on in the movie as well. Anyone that is a fan of movies like Office Space will love this movie for sure. From nothing to everything this is definitely one of his best ever movies!
