what are some movies about work?

where the main character has problems with work.

I did try to research this myself but I don't think I have the best online research skills.

So far I have:

swimming with sharks

the office (tv series)

office space

devil wears prada

I am looking for movies where the central problem or theme is work, and not where the workplace is the backdrop for something else such as a love story. I want work stories!

    Working Girl with Harrison Ford, Sigourney Weaver, and Melanie Griffith. A really great film.

    There are so many different kinds of "work" rather than just in an office - there are so many movies that depict the military, the police, firefighters, doctors/nurses, hookers, drug dealers, babysitters, fastfood workers, garbage men, construction, government workers - such as the president or even royalty. And, by the way, Office Space is actually about work and a love story. Not many movies are about one issue - that's boring.

    There's a film that was made in the 80's called "Head Office", which is a spoof on big business. It might not be what you're looking for but it is entertaining. It stars Eddie Albert, Danny DeVito, Judge Reinhold, Jane Seymour, Rick Moranis to name a few.
