Dir Colin Higgins
With Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, Dolly Parton, Dabney Coleman
A BFI release
This gloriously feminist revenge comedy sees three put-upon office workers turn the tables on their sleazy boss. Judy (Fonda), Violet (Tomlin) and Doralee (Parton) couldn’t be more different from each other, but they bond over being mistreated by their boss: he yells at Judy on her first day, consistently takes credit for Violet’s ideas and sexually harasses Doralee. Fed up with him, and the sexist practices of their office, they dream of his removal. Based on an idea by Fonda, who had just formed her own production company, this is a brazen comedy that wears its politics on its sleeve. With an inspiring friendship at its heart, it’s a film that celebrates women supporting each other – and feels more relevant now than ever before.
