This little gem came out in 1988 and boy does the hair scream that from the rooftops! You can't tell from the DVD cover but Melanie's hair for the first half of the movie is typical Jersey Girl, teased bangs up to the sky and the sides stick out so far she could give Dumbo a run for his money.
This is one of my favorite movies from the 80's and I watch it more than I should. These were the days when Harrison Ford was still sexy, Melanie Griffith was the sweet "It" girl, and Sigourney Weaver was at the top of her game.
From The Back Cover:
Nominated for 6 Academy Awards, director Mike Nichol's witty, romantic look at life int he 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 villainess boss (SIGOURNEY WEAVER) breaks her leg skiing , Tess simply takes over her office, her apartment, even her wardrobe. She then creates a deal with a handsome investment banker (HARRISON FORD) that will either taker her straight to he top-or finish her off for good.
Now what that synopsis doesn't tell you is that Tess is just getting paybacks on her boss. Sigourney deserves everything she gets in this movie and it's so much fun to watch.
From crashing weddings to holding meetings Tess does everything she can to close the deal and get the man.
