Goofs

When Trask jumps off the elevator to hear Tess explain how she developed her idea, the elevator doors close behind him. As is clearly evident earlier in the same scene, the doors would have automatically reopened when sensing a body or other object in the way. See more »

Coffee, Tea, Me?
10 July 2000 | by See all my reviews

With a cast that includes Melanie Griffith, Harrison Ford, Sigourney Weaver, Alec Baldwin, Oliver Platt and Kevin Spacey, its a minor miracle Joan Cusack got any attention at all. But she did get attention, and a well-deserved Oscar nomination. She is completely hysterical and is one of the best reasons to see this fairy tale set against the big bad world of Wall Street. Her best scene is when she masquerades as Melanie's secretary and makes an offer to Harrison "Coffee, Tea, Me"?
