working girl movie 9 to 5

I have not seen a lot of movies with Dolly Parton in them but I like this one a lot! I think her character is hilarious specifically because of the situation she’s in and how the whole office judges her without knowing the whole story. I’m sure this happens at soo many companies and girls have a tendency to turn against each other.

Here’s a quick Wikipedia intro:

Judy Bernly (Jane Fonda), a housewife whose husband has left her for his secretary, begins her own secretarial career at Consolidated Companies, a very large corporation. Violet Newstead (Lily Tomlin), a feisty, widowed veteran office manager, instructs her on the perils and procedures of office life – and of working for Franklin Hart Jr. (Dabney Coleman), their sleazy, chauvinistic boss, and his right-hand woman, the crisp, nosy Roz (Elizabeth Wilson). Meanwhile, Hart’s endless attempts to seduce his happily married secretary, Doralee Rhodes (Dolly Parton), lead the entire office to think she’s a “dime-store floozy.” When Hart unfairly passes Violet over for a promotion, she drowns her sorrows at a local bar with Judy and Doralee, who regales the others with tales of Hart’s epic advances.

(don’t read the rest unless you’ve already seen the movie!)
