Great NYC Movie Debate - If I Can Make It There

Some day soon we will have the great movie about working from home. Until then here is my top ten "If I Can Make It There, I Can Make it in American Somoa" movies about the hustle, grind and grip of making it and faking it in NYC. Today's category: work, work, work, work, work, work.


9 to 5 Best Theme Song ever, All-Star Cast, and memories of learning the phrase male chauvinist pig from my mom.


Working Girl If there is a remake Tess gets the window corner seat in the open office


Boomerang One of the most quotable movies of all time and the film with greatest after life of the lead character in the Marcus Graham Project.


The Prisoner of 2nd Avenue For a different look at what happens to a fired "ad man" and because this clip and quote held up well.

Mel: God... God... God... God...

Edna: Mel?

Mel: Huh?

Edna: Can't you sleep?

Mel: If I could sleep would I be laying here calling God at 2:00 in the morning?


Bella Because work ain't everything.


Sweet Smell of Success a "cracklingly cruel dispatch from the kill-or-be-killed wilds of 1950s Manhattan." (The Criterion Collection)


Margin Call Because we have all heard the "this an opportunity" speech.


Juice For all the NYers who dream of having their "Q" moment.


Michael Clayton He was once was lost.


Top Five Lost but Found genre but a comedy. And my favorite Union Square scene. A GenX Big Chill.

Stay Strong #NYC
