BORN YESTERDAY stars screen favorite Melanie Griffith (Working Girl) as Billie Dawn, a Las Vegas showgirl whose lack of sophistication makes for some hilariously embarrassing moments in the Washington, D.C., social scene. That's when her overbearing boyfriend (John Goodman - The Babe) hires a well-educated and handsome journalist (Don Johnson - Guilty As Sin) to smarten her up. The improbable romance that blossoms between Billie and her tutor turns all of their lives - and Washington, D.C. - upside down!
