THOUGHTS ON WATCHING "WORKING GIRL" FOR THE FIRST TIME AT AGE 40

  1. OPEN ON the Statue of Liberty. Carly Simon is singing.
    Solid beginning.
  2. Tess McGill is three months older than her boss, Katherine Parker.
    Sigourney Weaver: born October 8, 1949. Melanie Griffith: born August 9, 1957.
  3. I am calling out the huge hair. Cyn (Joan Cusack) would need to spend ten minutes of every hour reapplying Aqua Net.
  4. Pink marble and chrome. The eighties.
  5. "If you want to be taken seriously, you need serious hair."
  6. Melanie Griffith is really fantastic.
  7. A six thousand dollar dress in 1988 would cost $12,208 today.
  8. This scene with Harrison Ford and Melanie Griffith meeting for the first time would be a bigger surprise if ABC didn't use the trope in every single series since Grey's Anatomy.
  9. "I've got a head for business and a bod for sin."
    This is the quote I've heard so often that I just wrongly assumed I had seen the film.
  10. Harrison Ford shirtless!
    Not bad, but we got Alec Baldwin earlier.
  11. "Lady in Red," the song so timeless they gave it an emoji 💃🏻
  12. Most surprising cameo: young Kathy Geiss.
  13. This is a love letter to Manhattan in the eighties, but Staten Island could sue for slander.
  14. And we're back to Carly Simon. Best movie ever?
