An average movie

Since I have a huge weak spot for Jane Fonda, I always try to watch her movies when I get the opportunity. Unfortunaly, I thought this flick was terribly disappointing. Basically, it is one of those comedies which turn an interesting premise (a trio of working women have to deal with an awfull boss) into a stupid farce with some tedious jokes along the way. I can't believe it is tagged as a 'femin... read more

Description: With a nod to Preston Sturges's classic dark comedy Unfaithfully Yours (about a man who fantasizes about murdering his possibly philandering wife), this 1980 cotton-candy-feminist-vendetta film concerns a monstrous boss (Dabney Coleman) whose more capable underlings dream of ways of punishing him. That much of the film is particularly fun, but the rest of it descends into silliness when the women stumble onto a real-life opportunity to teach him a lesson. Fonda, the biggest star in the film at the time, takes a back seat to Parton's and Tomlin's showier roles. Written and directed by the late Colin Higgins (who made a lot of peo ... (more)

"Three women take it upon themselves to get back at their evil boss in this funny comedy. Dolly Parton, Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin make a fantastic team. There was obviously an incredible chemistry at work between them. Along with Dabney Coleman they play their fantastic characters to the hilt. There are some silly moments when the 3 women high after smoking pot imagine how they will get rid of their boss. The mix up at the hospital, though inane, is needed to keep the story going. The supporting"

My Top 150 Favorite Comedies (150 movies items)

"And following Private Benjamin is another "girl power" flick" that took the theatres by storm during the first year of the 80's. This one is a tale about a trio of corporate ladder climbing cuties who kidnap their employer and hold him hostage in order to show him who really is the boss. Y'know, after a recent watch of this film, I've come to realize that despite the artificially face-lifted freak that Dolly Parton has currently become, 9 To 5, her first foray into film, shows that, back in t"

PopMatter's Essential Film Performances - 2013 (50 movies items)

"Dolly Parton In 1980, Dolly Parton was already one of the most recognizable (and caricatured) celebrities in the world, a musical force in both country and pop fields but an unproven commodity on the silver screen. But with 9 to 5, one of the most successful comedies in film history, Dolly’s fame exploded by way of a performance that accumulated the essential appeal of Dollyhood: backwoods sweetness, the divide between over-the-top physical embellishments and genuine modesty, and firecracker s"
