Overview

Judy Bernly Jane Fonda, a housewife whose husband has left her for his secretary, begins her own secretarial career at a huge corporation. Violet Newstead Lily Tomlin, a feisty, veteran office manager, instructs her on the perils and procedures of office life -- and of working for Franklin Hart Jr. Dabney Coleman, their chauvinistic, sleazy boss, and his right-hand woman, the crisp, nosy Roz Elizabeth Wilson. Meanwhile, Hart's endless attempts to seduce his happily married secretary, Doralee Rhodes Dolly Parton, lead the entire office to think she's a trollop. When Hart unfairly passes Violet over for a promotion, she drowns her sorrows at a local bar with Judy and Doralee, who regales the others with tales of Hart's epic advances. Later, at Doralee's house, the women smoke pot, eat barbecue, and concoct hilarious revenge fantasies -- a rodeo hog-tie, a Wild West shootout, and a gothic Snow White scenario -- about killing their boss. When a mix-up leads the women to think they have accidentally poisoned Hart's coffee, they hatch a scheme to protect themselves by stealing Hart's body from the morgue. When he turns up alive, never having drunk the coffee, they must kidnap him to prevent him from blackmailing them or calling the police. The women then use the occasion of their boss' absence to effect some changes around the office.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Brian J. Dillard
Between the three of them, Lily Tomlin, Jane Fonda, and Dolly Parton manage to embody at least six archetypes of put-upon womanhood in this feminist manifesto disguised as a hilarious satire. Fonda represents both the happy homemaker and the tentative divorcee. Lily Tomlin plays the self-assured widow and also the career woman trying to break into the boys' club. Dolly Parton -- parlaying the comic timing she honed as a country-music variety-show regular into an auspicious film debut -- at first seems the opportunistic trollop, but really she's the sweet working wife. And with a huge supporting cast that eschews male characters almost as forcefully as The Women, Nine to Five fits in everyone from gal Fridays to working moms, jaded alcoholics to clueless trophy wives. Unlike such later feminist empowerment fantasies as The First Wives Club, though, this Colin Higgins-directed farce wears its satire on its sleeve. Animated flights of fancy, exaggerated revenge scenarios, and the fine comedic chemistry of the starring triad keep the film from seeming mean-spirited even when it stacks the deck in favor of the fairer sex. The phrase "sexist egotistical lying hypocritical bigot" fits Dabney Coleman's despicable F. Hart to a tee; he makes the creep seem instantly familiar, yet totally over the top. Fine supporting turns from Marian Mercer (as Hart's wife) and Elizabeth Wilson (as the meddlesome Roz) are just two of the many details that make this movie so funny. By 1980 the women's movement enjoyed the patronage of not just political activists, but millions of ordinary working women, and Nine to Five was the perfect populist vehicle for their collective cries of frustration. Laughter really is the best revenge, and that's what this smart fable provides in spades.
Entertainment Weekly
A dream commentary track: Tomlin, Parton, and producer Bruce Gilbert fight (good-naturedly) for mic time with Fonda...and chatter about researching real secretaries' experiences."

    More than a feminist comedy

    Although it's often branded as a feminist comedy, "Nine to Five" will appeal to anyone who's ever been an office cog in the corporate machine and felt underpaid, unvalued - and maybe a touch vengeful about it. It's all about payback for the dastardly boss man. The entire sequence in the hospital emergency ward alone (I won't give it away) is one of the most memorable, funniest scenes in a movie comedy that I have ever seen.

    Workin' 9 to 5!!!

    This is the best family comedy ever. I first saw it on T.V. and knew I had to buy it. It is a awesome comedy about three office workers, (Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, and Dolly Parton) who are fed up with their chauvinistic, sleazy boss, (Dabney Coleman) and his right-hand woman, the crisp, nosy Roz (Elizabeth Wilson). So they decided to take their revenge against him. It is hilarious when the women smoke pot, eat barbecue, and concoct hilarious revenge fantasies -- a rodeo hog-tie, a Wild West shootout, and a gothic Snow White scenario -- about killing their boss. This is a hilarious comedy for the whole family.

    Workin', workin', workin', workin, workin 9 to 5!

    Even though most people say what I'm about to say, I honestly say that '' 9 to 5'' is one of the funiest movies of all times and is one of my favorite movies. The trio of strong women is pure magic. Jane Fonda is adorable, Lily Tomlin is hilarous, and Dolly Parton is the peak of them, she rules with being adorable, charming, hilarous, and sexy all in one. They all do a surperb job at making us laugh. Everyone should see this movie, it's funny, no, it's hilarous, and so easy to relate to. Its a perfect film. It also contains my favorite quote of all times, it's said by Parton and it is , '' Oh you steal the wrong body from the hospital and all you can say is I must have made a mistake?!'' Go see this movie, you will love it!
