9 to 5 (1980)

Colin Higgins directs Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin and Dolly Parton in this workplace comedy where three put-upon female employees turn the tables on their misogynistic boss.

It has dated, it is bitty, the ending is about as neat as a Primark floor at 5.59pm. But Tomlin and Dolly are stellar, that theme song thumps and it makes you smile even at its weakest, broadest moments.
