SYNOPSIS

‘Who hasn’t wanted to exact revenge on their sexist, megalomaniacal boss?  Consolidated Companies coworkers Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin and Dolly Parton (in her big-screen debut!) band together after believing they’ve poisoned their backstabbing, handsy head honcho (Dabney Coleman).  Ms. Fonda’s new production company, IPC, was at the helm for this timely, candy-colored, yet darkly hilarious satire that envisions a dream workplace free from tyrannical leadership.  The heightened reality of this wildly successful and popular farce finds perfection in a femme-led office utopia, and a cathartic world where bigots are punished for their transgressions.  With interludes into dream-like fantasyscapes, multiple kidnappings and an incredible scene of weed-enhanced female bonding, 9 to 5 proves that “you can run an office without a boss, but you can't run an office without the secretaries.”’ UCLA
