There's no denying that Dolly Parton's hit song, "9 to 5," is catchy as hell. But beneath that infectious chorus lies a battle cry, and the real power of the track lies not in the upbeat rhythm but in its working girl call to arms.
The same could be said for the song's inspiration, the 1980 film of the same title. It's uproariously funny and immensely satisfying, but what makes this movie a true masterpiece is its feminist exploration of females in the workplace. The story centers on three women forced to deal with levels of sexual harassment and discrimination that may, by today's standards, seem exaggerated, yet were sadly typical for that time.
The coup of 9 TO 5 is its reliance on reality to deliver the punchline. This humor of this film strikes a major chord in its authentic portrayal of crappy jobs and terrible bosses, not to mention the universal fantasy of killing said bosses. Although the script is fantastic, this movie wouldn't be nearly as dynamic without the combined talent of Dolly Parton, Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin. Individually, each woman is a powerhouse in her own right. But like a comedic Voltron, they come together to form an unstoppable weapon of mass hilarity, capable of dropping sass bombs and shooting out razor-sharp quips. Their performances in this film are positively jubilant, and we challenge anyone to watch this movie without raising her or his fist in solidarity.
So if you're on the same boat with a lot of your friends, waiting for the day your ship will come in, just put down the rat poison and head over to Girlie Night for an evening of non-stop laughs and badass ladies. (Sarah Pitre)
