9 to 5
Director: Colin Higgins Run Time: 134 min. Format: DCP Rating: PG Release Year: 1980
Starring: Dolly Parton, Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, Dabney Coleman
We’ve all had our share of bad bosses and this is what makes it so much fun to watch three of our favorite women – Dolly Parton, Jane Fonda, and Lily Tomlin – get revenge on their sexist and egotistical boss! 9 to 5 may be famous for its theme song, but it’s the brilliant combination of humor mixed with tackling real gender issues that makes it a classic. Watch these ladies get stoned, fantasize about killing their boss, and then actually eek out a plan to make him pay (S&M outfit anyone)?
While you may remember 9 to 5 as that funny harmless comedy from the 1980s, it’s actually bitingly devious which, of course, always makes for the very best time! Plus did we mention… Dolly Parton, Jane Fonda, and Lily Tomlin?!
