Nominated for 6 Academy Awards; director Mike Nichols' witty, romantic look at life in the corporate jungle stars Melanie Griffith as Tess McGill, an ambitious secretary with a unique approach for climbing the ladder to success. When her classy, but villainous boss (Sigourney Weaver) breaks a leg skiing, Tess takes over her office, her apartment, and even her wardrobe. She then creates a deal with a handsome investment banker (Harrison Ford) that will either take her straight to the top - or finish her off for good.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Working Girl, always fun even when at its most frivolous, has the benefit of the cinematographer Michael Ballhaus's sharp visual sense of board room chic, and of supporting characters who help carry its class distinctions beyond simple caricature.
Fresh: How will the working class be educated to survive and thrive in the computer age? This intoxicating movie has an answer: let her strut her outer-borough wisdom from Wall Street to the Pacific Rim. Watch her fatten portfolios as she melts hearts.
Fresh: Working Girl is enjoyable largely due to the fun of watching scrappy, sexy, unpredictable Melanie Griffith rise from Staten Island secretary to Wall Street whiz.
Rotten: Nichols' timing seems off.

this is a great film and a real classic for the time. Yes, why isn't there an option to buy? I would buy it. There are a lot of films here i woud buy if they were for sale, but they're not and i don't get it... you could make MONEY....
Great movie. Would totally buy it if that were an option.
Quintessential '80s film
This romantic comedy takes me back to when I was as young as Melanie Griffiths' character Tess, when women had big hair, and men wore power ties, and making deals was the name of the game. It has one of the best opening credits I've ever seen. Look for a young pre-"Usual Suspects" Kevin Spacey as an oafish arbitrageur, and Joan Cusack as Tess's best friend; they are both memorable in supporting roles.
