Working Girl

Continuity mistake: When Tess arrives at Cyn's party at the bar, she finds Mick drinking. She joins him and puts her purse on the table. Mick asks her to dance and the next shot you can see purse strap is back on her shoulder. (00:53:40)

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)

Continuity mistake: From Katherine's office there is a beautiful view on a waterway (New Yorkers will know the name). In every scene there there is a lot of discontinuity regarding the ships and ferries appearing and disappearing, especially when Tess comes to the office the second time to take some notes. (00:16:10)

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.

Alice Baxter: Maybe now would be a good time to go over what you expect of me.
Tess McGill: I expect you to call me Tess. I don't expect you to fetch me coffee unless you're getting some for yourself. And the rest we'll just make up as we go along.

Cyn: Sometimes I sing and dance around the house in my underwear. Doesn't make me Madonna. Never will.

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.
