Classic 80's, with M.J Fox at his best!

'The Secret of My Success' is classic 80's cinema, with an incredible performance by one of my favorite actors, M.J Fox. I remember the 80's euphoria, as I am an Indian, I lived in India... I remember Mithun dancing in his hit films, and loving him. M.J Fox was another kid-favorite. Watching this film, just makes me go back in time and jump! 'The Secret Of My Success' is about M.J Fox, who comes to make it big in New York City, and then begins his youthful journey, which is FUN! The ambitious kid inside you, the confidence to conquerer the World, the believe, you become Brantley Foster from the very start. And the series of events he goes through are so memorable. I just love this film! Herbert Ross's direction is fantastic. Jim Cash's screenplay is full of fun! Carlo Di Palma's Cinematography, like always, is striking. Paul Hirsch's editing is crisp. M.J Fox is an Icon. I've always loved him, be it this film, the Back To The Future series or Teen Wolf. He is a magical actor, who's simply lovable. Helen Slater is the only performer, who stands up to M.J Fox and delivers a very likable performance. On the whole, This is simply, 80's and M.J Fox at their best! From this fan, Two Big Thumbs Up!

It's Vera Prescott who steals the show!

Okay, Michael J. Fox stars as a Midwestern college graduate who moves to New York City to conquer the business world. He is completely unprepared as Brantley Foster. He is so desperate that he contacts a distant cousin, Richard Prescott, for help breaking in to the business world of New York City. Along the way, he meets his aunt Vera Prescott, played by the delicious Margaret Whitton who really steals the show in this role. He also falls in love with Christy Wills who works there and is played admirably by Helen Slater. John Pankow plays the guy in the mail room who helps Brantley. The cast is first rate but the writing is somewhat mediocre material. It's a good entertainment with a first rate cast and the scenes in the country are quite beautiful.

Nothing wrong with being typically 80s.

Brantley Foster (Michael J,Fox) is from Kansas, wanting to better himself in the big wide world he hits New York hoping to make it big. However, landing a job in the big apple isn't as easy as he had thought. So turning to a tycoon uncle he literally doesn't know, he lands a job the mail room!. From where Brantley leads a double life as he creates Carlton Whitfield and sets about bluffing his way to the top and into the heart of sexy executive Christy Wills (Helen Slater). Michael J. Fox is on cracking comedy form as the young hero of this 1980s light comedy. It's the sort of 80s film that has managed to break out of that decade and still be enjoyable in this latest, power driven, age. The formula is safe and plays out as expected, and the soundtrack, including notable movie riffs, adds to the high sense of energetic fun on offer. Wafer thin plot be damned, Fox delivers on the star vehicle promise and he in turn is backed up by a smashing turn from Margaret Whitton. Silly, unadulterated fun it be. 7/10
