Nine to Five (1980)

I organized a film viewing night with friends and we had decided on a Deep South theme. I pulled out DVDs of Streetcar Named Desire, Mudhoney, Squirm, True Stories, and anything else I could think of. After watching The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas, everyone in the room (five women and me) was raving about Dolly Parton’s performance, so we decided to drop the whole Southern thing and watch Nine to Five. This is a film that I have always likes since I first saw it long, long ago on TV, but it was even more fun.

I love everything that Colin Higgins wrote and directed (although I never saw the Shirley MacLaine biopic thing he somehow got involved in). It is such a shame that he did not live to make more movies.
