Notebook Reviews: WORKING GIRL

Mike Nichols – 1988

4 out of 5 stars

Working Girl is an incredibly entertaining – and very eighties romantic comedy. Everyone in the cast – Harrison Ford, Sigourney Weaver, Melanie Griffith and Joan Cusack delivers a great performance.

He might have top billing, but Harrison Ford‘s turn here is more of a supporting one (channelling Cary Grart). Griffith is the real star here. 

It might be a light and breezy studio comedy (and something of a 1930s throwback), but Mike Nichols has such a grip on the tone, that it’s a cut above most films of this ilk.
