Seeing Harrison Ford play regular person is a little disconcerting. Seeing him play regular person in a romantic comedy that isn’t Star Wars is downright weird. However, after running from boulders and playing the universes most lovable scoundrel Ford had a role on the 1988 film Working Girl.
The film stars Ford as a rather generic love interest, but it really relies upon Melanie Griffith as a secretary who moves the plot forward. Meanwhile, Ford plays corporate executive Jack Trainer. The film relies upon sharp comic timing from Griffith and Ford and a romantic comedy that just about everyone could get into with as much intelligence as later favorites like Sleepless in Seattle and You’ve Got Mail.
