I love Michael J. Fox. In fact, I don’t think I know anyone who doesn’t. He’s super charismatic and likeable. That’s probably why he was in so many cool movies in the 80s. My absolute favorite happens to be the Secret of My Success.
Foxxy plays Brantley, a young man with a lot of ambition who begins work in the mailroom of his uncle’s company. When an executive of the company is fired, Brantley, using his mailroom know-how, manages to pose as the new executive and begins making changes for the company.
Hilarity, of course, ensues. Notably the constant changing of clothes from mailroom boy to executive – often in elevators! Then there’s his Aunt (by marriage, not blood!) who he unwittingly sleeps with and is pursued by for much of the movie. That sounds creepier than it actually is in the movie!
Watch Out For:
Apparently Cindy Crawford makes a fleeting appearance in the opening credits. Give me a yell if you spot her!
