I have no affinity for The Secret of My Success (1987). I saw it upon its theatrical release in 1987, where I was carded as a 12 year old entering a PG-13 movie. My friend's dad had to come into the box office and tell them it was fine. So, thanks, Mr. P.
I also remember both the seduction of "Brantley" and the immediate revelation he'd been seduced by a distant sorta relative. And the use of Yello's "Oh Yeah".*
And, of course, Helen Slater, who I didn't realize was Helen Slater until college or so. And - the ruse which is the core of the film, which I thought I understood but missed something. But I am here to tell you here in 2021 AD, I do not understand what Brantley was doing.
