Total Recast | Episode 13: ‘9 to 5’ (1980)

“Working 9 to 5, what a way to make a living, barely getting by, it’s all taking and no giving, they just use your mind, and they never give you credit, it’s enough to drive you crazy if you let it” Oh yes, there will be singing as Sailor and Kane cover the 1980 comedy 9 to 5 directed by Colin Higgins. It stars Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, and Dolly Parton as three working women who live out their fantasies of getting even with and overthrowing the company’s autocratic, “sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot” boss, played by Dabney Coleman.

During our review and recast of this movie, we try and answer why this comedy isn’t talked about alongside other 80 comedy classics. We also discuss how timeless and how relevant the themes are here.

Let us know what you think and if you remember the Jane Fonda workout tapes as fondly as Kane does.
