Working Girl
Beauty. Brains. Charm. Tess McGill has them all. In fact, she's got everything going for her except the right haircut, the right clothes, and most importantly, the right job. Ambushed one too many times in the struggle to get out of the Wall Street secretarial pool and onto management track, Tess decides to take matters into her own hands. When her classy, seductive and treacherous boss breaks a leg skiing, Tess steps, literally, into her boss's shoes - as well as her apartment, her corner office and her $6000 dresses. Suitably disguised, Tess forms an alliance with a very capable - and very attractive - Wall Street investment banker. Together, they create a deal that would catapult Tess into the big time - or finish her off for good.

Nine to Five
The power behind the throne.

9 TO 5 is the much-loved revenge comedy about three female office workers (the terrific trio of Lily Tomlin, Jane Fonda, and Dolly Parton) in a giant corporation who are subjected to the indignity of a chauvinist boss (played marvelously by Dabney Coleman). They entertain wild fantasies to get even through a series of outrageous incidents. When the film first came to theaters in 1980, it was a huge hit not just because of the quality of the film but because of the subject matter of women being treated fairly in the workplace. Dolly Parton's theme song was nominated for an Academy Award.

Wall Street: Special Edition
In this riveting behind-the-scenes look at big business in the 1980's, an ambitions young broker (CHARLIE SHEEN) is lured into the illegal, lucrative world of corporate espionage when he is seduced by the power, status and financial wizardry of Wall Street legend Gordon Gekko (MICHAEL DOUGLAS in his Oscar-winning performance. Best Actor 1987). But he soon discovers that the pursuit of overnight riches comes at a price that's too high to pay. DARYL HANNAH and MARTIN SHEEN co-star in Oliver Stone's gripping morality tale about the American dream gone wrong.

Big
Tom Hanks won rave reviews for his Oscan nominated performance (1988, Best Actor) as a twelve-year-old boy trapped inside a thirty-year-old body in director Penny Marshall's winning comedy. At a carnival, young Josh Baskin (Hanks) wishes he was big - only to awake the next morning and discover he is! With the help of his friend Billy, Josh lands a job at a toy company. There, his inner wisdom enables him to successfully predict what children want to buy, making the awestruck, naďve Josh irresistable to a beautiful ladder-climbing colleague (Elizabeth Perkins). But the more he experiences being an adult, the more Josh longs for the simple joys of childhood.

Revenge of the Nerds
