FIRST THOUGHTS - -

This movie is among the greatest 100 minute entertainment fests in existence. "9 to 5" reaches and touches everybody, both male and female somewhere personal and strangely satisfying. Though the plot is great and really moves, it is the smart "fantasy-revenge" ideas, dialogue and strong characterizations that keep this from becoming mean-spirited and thereby enable this movie to work so well for a diverse audience.

We need to salute Director/Screenwriter, Colin Higgins first. Higgins was the Screenwriter for "Harold and Maude", "Silver Streak" and "Foul Play", picking up a Golden Globe nomination for "Foul Play" in 1978. All of Higgins films have an air of sophistication and display a refreshing respect for the audience particularly in avoiding the obvious mean-spirited cliches that many of his films' topics' encompass. Also, Editor Pembroke J. Herring who was nominated for 3 Academy Awards for Editing and also edited "Ground Hogs Day", did an amazingly seamless job of keeping "9 to 5" so coherently glued together. Herring was nominated for "Best Editing" for; "Tora! Tora!Tora!", 1970, "Bound For Glory",1976, "Out Of Africa", 1985 and edited many other excellent comedies and dramas. Higgins and Herring worked together on a number films all of which turned out the better for their contribution and "9 to 5" is one of them.

The three female leads all embody some type of stereotype. Lily Tomlin, as Violet Newstead is the widow with four children, going it alone and trying to break into the male dominated executive world of big business for the past 12 years - UNSUCCESSFULLY. She is confident and capable but she is a woman in a man's world, so she is very dissatisfied with the treatment she has been getting by the male establishment embodied through F.

I purchased 9 To 5 - Sexist, Egotistical, Lying Hypocritical Bigot Edition - Widescreen DVD and was really excited as 9 to 5 is one of my favorite films. I expected alot from this DVD as I heard it had alot of extras and a brand new remastered transfer. Well only half my expectations were met. The extras were great, they included deleted scenes, audio commentary, featurettes and more. The only problem was with the supposed new remastered transfer. When compared to the previous bare bones copy, it just didn't stack up. I did notice that alot of the cracks and pops were removed but the film was very dark. Where as the older transfer was very bright. Another thing I noticed was the audio track on the new transfer sounded very distorted and muffled. I quickly send this DVD back as I wasn't having this awful transfer. When you purchase this DVD you have to think to yourself, what is more important the movie transfer or the extras it provides. With me, the extras just wasn't enough to make me keep this DVD. I would say if you're a hardcore 9 To 5 fan, you will be very happy with the extras but very disppointed in the DVD transfer.

This film is one of the rare achievements in comedy: I can watch this over and over (and I have) and still laugh at the same parts. The jokes never wear out after a viewing or two. That's due in part to the excellent camaraderie between Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, and Dolly Parton. I simply can't imagine this film without any of those three, for they made their roles what it is and the interractions between the three of them are hilarious. Dabney Coleman as their sexist boss with an extremely naive wife is also hilarious as he gets his comeuppance.

Jane Fonda plays a mousy lady who enters the work force after her husband runs off with his secretary. Seeing her flustered by the photocopier is hilarious and it's fun to watch her transformation into a confident lady who can hold her own (gun) against the boss.

Lily Tomlin plays the lady who's been at the company for a long time and is passed over for a rightful promotion because she's a woman. I love her scene when she schemes to steal a body from the hospital, mistakingly thinking it's her boss's dead body. When she's in a doctor's white coat and a candy striper stops her and apologizes when she realizes she's interrupting a doctor, Lily says, "that's right, I'm a doctor...so why the hell am I talking to you?"

Dolly Parton plays the secretary who uses her God-given endowment to humorous effect. Dabney Coleman can't help to push pencil holders off his desk so she can bend down and pick them up while he gets to sneak a peak.

Just thought some would like to know that this edition with the blue cover is a FULLSCREEN edition, despite the fact it says it has a 1:85 aspect ratio. If you want the Widescreen edition, buy the one with the orange cover... I had to go to the store today to look at them both, as Amazons' info (or lack thereof) was confusing me. Hopefully, the website will be updated to reflect this information. I know it's important to me, and with so many things coming out in multiple editions at once, I think it needs to be stated clearly. The 5-star rating is for the movie itself, which is a classic, though I've yet to watch the special features.
