And don’t you dare call it Secretary’s Day.
MTV has marked the occasion with a look at their five favourite fictional administrative assistants, including (of course) Janine Melnitz… you know, from Venkman’s staff?!
Janine Melnitz — “Ghostbusters”
Janine Melnitz (Annie Potts) is a top contender for the most memorable receptionist in film. She operates the Ghostbusters’ busy phones, completely unperturbed by the bizarre events described to her by potential clients. Even more heroically, Janine deals with the borderline-dysfunctional man-children that are the Ghostbusters, asserting her authority while also getting the job done.
