I think poor Joan Cusack's a bit underrated as an actress, probably because she's not conventionally good looking enough to play leading lady roles but she's been in loads of movies over the years. She played Melanie Griffith's best mate in Working Girl and my mum and I laugh at her 80s fashions - really big hair and earrings and that horrible two-tone eyeshadow!
At one point in the film Melanie Griffith's character puts on a dress and Joan Cusack's character says "It needs some bows or sumthin' !" in a strong Brooklyn accent.
I liked that film a lot when I was a kid. It says a lot now about corporate greed in the 80s and yuppiedom. It's also weird (as with so many films) seeing the World Trade Centre in the movie.
