“9 to 5” (20th Century Fox, 1980). Three justifiably disgruntled office workers (played by Lily Tomlin, Jane Fonda and Dolly Parton) get an unexpected opportunity to take down their “sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot” boss (played by Dabney Coleman) in this classic workplace comedy. While the tone is kept silly and light, the ladies’ plight is still relevant today for all of us in the workplace. Written by Patricia Resnick and Colin Higgins. Directed by Colin Higgins. “Oh-hoh, crazy am I? They never found Jimmy Hoffa!”
