Nichols gives a 1980s update to the ‘30s workplace comedy, with working-class Staten Island striver Tess (Melanie Griffith) making a regular ferry commute between her provincial life with neighborhood guy fiancé Alec Baldwin and the world of cosmopolitan high finance, where she works under exec Sigourney Weaver. Their professional relationship is threatened when Tess starts to fall for her boss’s old flame: Harrison Ford at the height of his rugged charm.
