Classic Bernal
20 June 2016 | by (Philippines) – See all my reviews

Cable TV has been running Working Girls lately so I found myself enjoying this Bernal film all over again. This is the top caliber director's first stint with Viva films and he got all the talented actress of the time. Each has her own story to tell and interwoven in the Makati setting where they work. Most stories are serious, like Chanda Romero's struggle on how to deal with a husband who is insecure; and Rio Locsin who got pregnant without marriage. Since this is the 80s, it was still an issue in the work place. There are also the fun side provided by Carmi Martin and the returning Pareño. This is sort of Gina Pareño's comeback movie, and she almost steals the whole movie by providing the (still) funny antics. This was eventually followed by Working Girls 2 and Working Boys, but both are forgettable. Another highlight is the theme song, still an apt tune for today's working girl in posh Makati. Look for this classic, you won't regret it!
