PG-13 | | Comedy, Romance
A talented young man can't get an executive position without rising through the ranks, so he comes up with a shortcut, which also benefits his love life.
The spelling of this movie's title The Secret of My Success (1987) had the phrase stylized by forming a '$' symbol out of the "Success" word's second letter 'S' character.
I was having fun on this job! You had all this energy, and all these crazy ideas... and you kept taking your pants off.
While Brantley is watching out of the window in his uncle's company, we see that someone is walking through the hallway towards him. In the next sequence from another angle, we expect the person to pass Brantley, but there's no one there and nowhere for them to go even if they were.
There are two different ending sequences. In the first, after they leave the boardroom Fred and Vera meet and start to flirt. Christy and Brantley go into the elevator which stops between floors. In the second version, this scene is ommitted and we cut to several weeks later where the two couples climb into a limo and go the opera. The first shows up on the video releases, whereas the second shows up in broadcast versions.
