Classic Film Friday: 9 To 5

What can I say about this movie? Well it is pretty funny. And it has a star, a country music icon, and a comedian. Judy Bernly (Jane Fonda) is a divorced woman, forced to make a go of it in the working world. Violet Newstead (Lily Tomlin) is the veteran who shows Judy around, and Doralee Rhodes (Dolly Parton) who everyone believes is screwing the boss... but isn't. Franklin Hart Jr. (Dabney Coleman) is the boss. He he plays the foil to every working man's dream.

Watch as the three women try to work through some rather interesting predicaments and make the workplace a little better and try to not get fired in the process. This movie plays up the stereotypical sexist man's world. I'm not trying to say it wasn't like that in 1980, but to think of something like that happening now... well not were I ever worked.
