Working Girl

Trivia: Catherine tosses a huge black gorilla to Tess as she gets off the helicopter. This was an inside joke reference to "Gorillas in the Mist" which Sigourney Weaver had just finished filming and was released only three months before this movie.

Trivia: You can see a quick cameo by Ricki Lake in the wedding reception dance scene. She is the bridesmaid that Jack asks for information about nicknames for the girl that is dancing with Trask at the time.

Trivia: A then unknown Kevin Spacey has a cameo early in the film. He plays Bob Speck-the guy that Tess has an "interview" with in the limo. This is also one of the last films that you can see his large cheek mole in. He had it removed between See No Evil, Hear No Evil and Dad. Now all that remains is a small scar that can be seen when caught in the proper lighting.

Trivia: Look for a very young David Duchovny making his movie debut. He is one of Tess' surprise birthday party friends in the far left hand side of the closet.

Continuity mistake: During the whole scene where Tess says good-bye to her colleagues, up to the moment when she gets out of the elevator, drops her stuff and picks it up her hair is messy and straggly. When she gets up and sees Katherine it's perfectly done up. (01:34:20)

Tess McGill: What if he doesn't?.. pop the question?
Katherine Parker: 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.

Question: If Jack and Katherine were a couple, how is it that Jack doesn't recognize Katherine's office when he goes there to confirm him and Tess to start working on the Trask deal?

Answer: Unless Katherine had recently moved to a new office, which it does not appear that she did, then Jack should know this was her office. However, it is also possible that he had just never been there before and they only saw each other outside of work. When Jack went to see Tess, he had a specific business reason for going there.
