In this remake of the 1950 George Cukor classic, Melanie Griffith (Something Wild) stars as Billie Dawn, a Las Vegas showgirl whose lack of sophistication embarrasses her Washington, D.C. millionaire boyfriend (John Goodman, Barton Fink). He, in turn, hires a handsome and well-educated journalist (Don Johnson, TV’s Miami Vice) to help smarten her up. In no time at all, the millionaire gets much more than he bargains for, as Billie blossoms into an independent thinker. Sparks fly as she uses her learning to turn the nation's capital upside down. You're sure to love Born Yesterday, the hilariously delightful comedy hit that proves you should never underestimate the power of an underestimated woman. Mexican filmmaker Luis Mandoki (When a Man Loves a Woman) directed this charming comedy which also features Edward Herrmann (Overboard), Max Perlich (Rush), Fred Dalton Thompson (Die Hard 2) and Nora Dunn (Three Kings).
