Katherine Parker says she is turning 30 in about a week, making her almost the same age as Tess. Her age is reinforced by her fundraising letter to her fellow Wellesley alumna, which contains the information that they graduated eight years prior; people commonly graduate at 22, making Katherine now 30. The significance of her age is that although she and Tess are virtually the same age, Katherine's career is far more advanced. See more »

What if he doesn't?... pop the question?
I really don't think that's a variable. We're in the same city now, I've indicated that I'm receptive to an offer, I've cleared the month of June... and I am, after all, me.

Wonderful romance-comedy in the tradition of Capra and Sturges with Griffith perfectly cast as a woman posing as a business mogul to get ahead in the corporate world and spite bitchy boss Weaver, who is simply divine. Ford is especially precious in a rare romantic-comedy as Griffith's partner in business and love interest. The story is creative and witty. Mike Nichols' direction is sharp and in the highest form. The fine supporting cast also features Cusack and the always durable Phillip Bosco. Carly Simon's wonderful song won an Oscar.
