Nine to Five

Nine to Five is a hilarious movie, despite some character flaws, an obviously challenged cast, and a flimsy plot.

Three unrealistically dumb women work as secretaries in an office, where their "sexist, egotistical, hypocritical bigot" of a boss, Mr. Hart (Dabney Coleman), treats them unfairly. Together they jokingly fantasize about the best way to do him in - Violet (Lily Tomlin), favors putting rat poison in his coffee, Dora Lee (Dolly Parton) wants to cattle-rope him western style; shy, timid mouse Carol (Jane Fonda) dreams of shooting him.

Well wouldn't you know it, the next day Violet accidentally does put rat poison in Hart's coffee; after he takes a sip, he falls over in his chair and bangs his head. When rushed to the hospital, it is decided that he only has a bump on his head, but Violet, Dora Lee, and Carol misunderstand, and think that he is dead. Violet poses as a doctor and steals what she believes to be Hart's body, which turns out to be the wrong one. Things continue in that manner, never making much sense, but providing enough entertainment value.
