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.
Chris Marney, the mail room boss, bears a striking resemblance to Robert Morse, who played a Brantley Whitfield like part in "How to Succeed in Business... without really trying". In that film, the first rule of success was " Get out of the mail room as soon as possible!"
Not the suits, man! You never consort with the suits unless they consort with you first.
Brantley Foster: Wait a minute, that's ridiculous! He's a person, I'm a person. I can't say hello to him?
Fred Melrose: He's not a person, he's a suit! You're mailroom. No consorting.
When Brantley and Vera are in the pool, and she pulls Brantley under the water the second time, he splashes around, and a crew member can be seen between the splashes sitting in a chair in the background near the corner of the pool.
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.
