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 picture has often been likened by critics and audiences to the earlier movie How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying (1967).
This is the third weekend in a row he's found an excuse not to come to the country... No, I don't know, but knowing him it's probably some teenage airhead from the steno pool. Hmph. The last one I caught him with was so dumb, she thought "dictation"...
When the executives are jogging on the the roof, Mr. Prescott stops running to emphasize his concern of an impending hostile takeover. In the closeup, they are on the Northeast corner of the roof, ascertainable by the East River and Roosevelt Island behind them. In the immediate cut to the wide shot, they are standing on the Southwest corner.
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.
Written, Performed and Produced by David Foster
