Can a kid from Kansas come to New York to conquer the business world and maneuver his way from the mailroom to the boardroom in a matter of weeks? Michael J. Fox (Back to the Future, The Hard Way) proves it can be done in this very funny lampoon of corporate business life directed by Hollywood veteran Herbert Ross (The Goodbye Girl, Footloose). Fresh out of college, Brantley (Fox) is determined to climb New York’s corporate ladder in record time by masquerading as an up-and-coming executive, even though he’s really the new mail boy. However, his plans begin to go awry when the boss’s wife (Margaret Whitton, Major League) falls in love with him and he falls in love with a junior executive (Helen Slater, Supergirl), who also happens to be the boss’s (Richard Jordan, The Yakuza) mistress. The wonderful cast also includes John Pankow (To Live and Die in L.A.), Christopher Murney (The Last Dragon), Fred Gwynne (My Cousin Vinny) and Mercedes Ruehl (Married to the Mob).
