I love this movie. Who would have thunk that a working woman could remain strong, continue her career, have uplifting relationships, and complete a strong character arch in a hollywood romantic comedy? All this happens, without demeaning her decisions or throwing her into an all-consuming romance. All this happens without teaching her a "lesson" about whom she should be as a woman. It's witty. It's clever. There's not a flat character in sight. It's Harrison Ford's greatest role. Rachel Mcadams is a boss (literally), and it's funnier than the film critics give credit. A true comedy. Non-pretentious cinematic art.
Feel Good Movie Are you a little awkward with heart? So is this. This amazing movie makes you believe in good things happening and cheering for the characters. A fun light hearted soundtrack highlights the cheerful loving character developments. Highly recommend.
Holly Hunter is Jane Craig, the network's most talented young new producer, lost in her work and loving it to distraction. Albert Brooks is Aaron Altman, a brilliant, dedicated reporter's reporter who is utterly devoid of on-camera charisma. William Hurt is Tom Grunick, a handsome guy and a natural salesman -- the perfect modern anchorman. If you want to know what's happening in the world...ask Jane. If you want to know what's wrong with the world...ask Aaron. If you want to know how it feels to be on top of the world...ask Tom. The only thing in the world they don't know yet is what they mean to each other. Holly Hunter, Albert Brooks and William Hurt star in BROADCAST NEWS, a romantic comedy set in the world of network television news correspondents, the first film from writer/director/producer James L. Brooks since his Academy Award-winning® Terms of Endearment.

Tess McGill is smart, gorgeous and struggling. Her life seems to have become an endless round of Staten Island Ferry commutes, lecherous bosses and low pay. However, she's determined to use her brains and talent to pull herself out of the secretarial pool and into the upper echelons of New York's brokerage industry. Before long, Tess realizes that she's in combat zone, and that she'll have to use commando tactics if she wants to survive. Mike Nicholos' WORKING GIRL is a comedy-drama that takes the sweet, but street-smart Tess (Melanie Griffith) on the trip up that treacherous corporate ladder.
