Possibly Mike Nichols's most purely enjoyable film since The Graduate, this witty, vibrant take on females in the work force boasts an exceptional cast (including Harrison Ford in a rare romantic leading role) and a savvy screenplay (by Kevin Wade) that effectively deconstructs the battle of the sexes in corporate America. A romantic comedy that is both romantic and comic in equal measure, the movie has fun satirizing the everyday lives of the working class, but retains a core of recognition so the viewer can always find the film relatable and believable. A Cinderella-type story to be sure, but winning and bitingly funny. The film received Oscar nominations for all three principal female roles, including a great Sigourney Weaver as Melanie Griffith's boss from hell, and Best Picture. It also picked up a trophy for Best Original Song, honoring Carly Simon's wonderfully uplifting theme, "Let the River Run".
