Tagline: "There's no such thing as an overnight success. Brantley Foster took two weeks"
I'm sure most of us had a pretty good idea of what we wanted to do after school or college but those lofty career aspirations don't always work out how we planned. A similar problem befalls the star of this feel-good 80's comedy. Landing the lead role fresh from the success of Back to the Future, Michael J. Fox stars as Brantley Foster. Aiming to escape the confines of the Kansas farm on which he grew up, Foster graduates from college and moves to New York after lining up an apartment and a decent executive position. After arriving for his first day at work, however, he finds himself laid off before he's even started after his new employers fall victim to a hostile takeover. Having no luck with subsequent interviews elsewhere, his last chance is to ask him uncle for help, Howard Prescott (Jordan), who just happens to be CEO of the Pemrose Corporation...
