Mindless Movie Monday: 9 to 5

nine_to_fiveIf there is ever a time to watch the 1980 classic workplace comedy “9 to 5”, it’s now. It’s not mindless, but you will laugh your butt off. Do I need to say more than Dolly Parton, Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda? I should hope not.

Essentially, these three overworked, underpaid and sexually harassed secretaries decide to grab life by the balls and kidnap their “sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot” boss (impeccably played by Dabney Coleman), setting in motion a grand scheme to not only give their boss the proverbial finger but also to right the wrongs they’ve been enduring at their company, Consolidated. Along the way, they smoke some weed, find new uses for rat poison and master the art of leather, dog chains and padlocks.

This was “Office Space” before “Office Space” was cool.  Dolly also just launched the musical adaptation on Broadway at the Marquis Theater!
