So this week we are throwing back with the real Sigourney Weaver, and more importantly with Tess McGill in :
Directed by: Mike Nichols
Written by: Kevin Wade
Starring:Melanie Griffith, Harrison Ford, Sigourney Weaver
Sorry Tina Belcher, but today Tess McGill is
Throw Back Thursday Bae.
- Tess McGill knows what she is about. She has a heart of gold and a head full of ambition. She knows what she wants and she’s not going to let anyone get in her way. She’s my dream girl, because she learned to be a badass.
- She isn’t going to let any man get in her way, even a dreamy Harrison Ford.
- Tess is also totally in charge of her sexuality. She owns it. She has a “head for business and a bod for sin.”
- Tess McGill doesn’t let men push her around. Ladies, take note. It’s okay to burn bridges with scum bags who treat you like meat. She also does it in a classy way.
- The hair. The hair makes this movie worth it.
- And the shoulder pads. Watch this movie for the shoulder pads.
- Also, Joan Cusack plays the quirky ride or die for our heroine. Look at her totally killing it. She is Queen of the Wing Women.
- Sigourney Weaver was born to be a villain. She’s so good at being a villain, that you aren’t quite sure at first. But you are also totally sure, because look at her. She is the original Prince Hans.
- Jack Trainer/Harrison Ford is the O.G. of getting a girls attention over tequila and not exchanging names or talking about work. Sorry Derek Shepherd/Patrick Dempsey. I see what you did there Shonda Rhimes. I see you.
- Also Bob Belcher gives the best reason to watch Working Girl.
Sure, there are some things that aren’t exactly the definition of 2016 feminism, but I like to think that the good outweighs the bad on that one. We must take the time to honor the sassy women who came before us, who put the first cracks in the glass ceiling. Every woman should add this to her list of must watch movies.
So go throw back with my girl Tess McGill and watch Working Girl this Thursday.
Also, check out Bob’s Burgers ep. 501 “Work Hard or Die Trying, Girl”, is on Netflix.
