Michael J. Fox,
Brantley Foster, a well-educated kid from Kansas, has always dreamed of making it big in New York. On his first work day in New York, he is fired in a hostile take-over and learns that jobs - and girls - are hard to get. When Brantley visits his distant uncle, Howard Prescott, who runs a multi-million-dollar company, he is given a job in the company's mail room. Then Brantley meets Christy Wills, who happens to be one of the top executives. Brantley sees how poorly the company is being run and decides to create a position under the name Carlton Whitfield, to influence and improve the company's operations. Soon things get unexpectedly out of hand, not in the least because of his aunt, his girl and leading a double life.Written by
Quoted from the American Film Institute: "A three hundred-acre estate on the Hudson River near Mount Kisco, New York, one hour from midtown Manhattan, was used for the Prescott estate sequences." See more »

Except maybe the red lamp on Michael J. Fox's table at his New York appartement: it's totally Seventies.
This movie is a very light, very enjoyable, a veritable document of the upbeat economic spirit that created the cesspool we're currently swimming through. College boy from Kansas arrives at the big city, loses his job before starting it, and still makes it big whilst shagging the boss's wife while he's at it. Great use of Yello's Oh Yeah track. Simply astounding cinematography.
And lots of Texas big hair.
Overall, a flashy, light, entertaining movie. Nuff said.
