Our Score
Women, beware women! This appealing executive-suite comedy sees Melanie Griffith climbing the corporate ladder to success by stepping on bitchy boss Sigourney Weaver's fingers after the latter steals one of her ideas. Griffith is the exploited and bossed-about secretary to Weaver, taking over from her in her absence and getting broker Harrison Ford as the main prize. This is a secretary's wish-fulfiller that's an easy-going treat for all in director Mike Nichols's assured hands. Carly Simon's Oscar-winning song, Let the River Run, makes the soundtrack one to treasure, too.


Naive but ambitious secretary Tess discovers her conniving boss has been claiming credit for her ideas. She hatches a plan to get revenge and further her own career into the bargain, with a little help from the unscrupulous executive's boyfriend. Comedy, starring Melanie Griffith, Sigourney Weaver, Harrison Ford, Joan Cusack and Alec Baldwin.
