Taking Care of Business

I discovered this movie in a search on Wikipedia for the term “Filofax”. The Filofax is a personal organizer binder (an oldschool hipster PDA). The core plot of this film is a businessman losing his Filofax to an escaped convict (played by James Belushi) who lives the high life.

I found this movie to be fun - an 80s comedy that hit all the notes. It was wild to see Gates McFadden and John de Lancie in a movie together (outside of Star Trek: The Next Generation).

This movie also showed me the expansive Filofax community. There are Filofax blogs, YouTube videos, and more. I think that the film licensed the brand - it was called “Filofax” in its UK release (Filofax is a UK company).
