Watching Working Girl with Melanie Griffith on RTE tonight (pouting because can't get my hands on HP book).

Haven't seen the movie in ages but ffs the hair!

WendyWeber Sat 21-Jul-07 00:50:17

It's a brilliant film but yes, the hair...aaaaargh

(And the trainers)

Melanie Griffith is just a fucking crime all around.

Seriously, she's a goddamn tragedy

KerryMumbledore Sat 21-Jul-07 00:53:16

I used to do the trainer thing back in the 80s

expatinscotland Sat 21-Jul-07 00:53:57

Her voice makes me lose the will to live.

Er, but we all aspired to hair like that at the time the film was made...

KerryMumbledore Sat 21-Jul-07 00:55:25

The hair BEFORE she cuts it off or after?

I know her voice is deadly! You just want to slap someone who talks like that.

80s hairdo aside, Melanie Griffiths used to be quite a pretty girl but she's now ruined herself with surgery (as have Faye Dunaway, Meg Ryan et al)...WHY????

KerryMumbledore Sat 21-Jul-07 00:56:47

Has Meg had work done?

She used to be so cute!

KerryMumbledore Sat 21-Jul-07 00:57:25

In this movie she's prancing around in her undies half the time and it's nice to see a woman with some meat on her bones.

DrippingLizzie Sat 21-Jul-07 00:59:14

Meg Ryan has got lips like the Joker from Batman and has a Nancy Reagan look about her these days...

KerryMumbledore Sat 21-Jul-07 01:00:30

That's pathetic. Poor thing took a major self-esteem hit with that Russell Crowe business.

Will google.

Talking about people who haven't aged well - did anybody see the girl from Last Tango in Paris in the Mail? She was gorgeous then - looks like Marc Bolan here - but scroll down, she's 55 now and just another middled-aged bag. Very reassuring!

Melanie Griffith was always a silly ho.

KerryMumbledore Sat 21-Jul-07 01:13:44

Two Words:

SHOULDER PADS!

stepfordwife Sat 21-Jul-07 01:15:56

one word
knees

Several words:

She was always a silly, talentless, ugly ho who probably got the job by sucking and fucking the right cocks.

KerryMumbledore Sat 21-Jul-07 01:20:52

expat - aren't you READING!

pmsl @ expat's disdain for Working Girl Mel!

expatinscotland Sat 21-Jul-07 01:23:21

She's a sleaze, Kerry. Just listen to that voice! FFS, that's her only voice, that of a cheap bimbo.

KerryMumbledore Sat 21-Jul-07 01:24:06

What I never GOT was how she swung Antonio (I know he's thick but ffs he's hot!)

DrippingLizzie Sat 21-Jul-07 01:25:20

She may be a lovely person, but she's totally fucked up that face of hers. Looks like a melted welly these days.

expatinscotland Sat 21-Jul-07 01:30:51

Knees, Kerry. Knees. That's how she got Antonio. Certainly isn't her talent, intelligence, charm, good looks, etc.

He's thick as two planks, anyhow.

expatinscotland Sat 21-Jul-07 01:31:23

She's a female Mickey Roarke. A train wreck of when Bad Surgery Happens to Bad People.
