Check out our latest episode as we take a break from the romance to discuss the acclaimed 1980 comedy 9 to 5. While the gender politics haven’t aged all that well, the trio of Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin and Dolly Parton boasts undeniable charisma, and they do kick some figurative, and surprisingly literal, ass in the name of equal rights in the workplace. Including a memorable scene of the three women gettin’ high and imagining zany revenge fantasies, the film takes some crazy turns that Parton’s song of the same name did not prepare us for. Oh, 1980, the hair was weird and the moustaches were aplenty, and it’s enough-to-drive-you-crazy if-you-let-it.
(Oh, man, that song is in our heads forever).
