Audience Reviews for Take This Job and Shove It


A fun and very funny movie, which at the same time deals with real life social issues at the time too. It's an interesting movie, and I enjoyed it, but it could have been better.

An entertaining movie starring Robert Hays, Barbara Hershey, and Art Carney. Robert Hays plays a man who gets the raw end of the stick and wants to start a brewing company of his own. The film also has an appearance of Country singer Johnny Paycheck, who's song, the same title of the film is played ion the film. A classic 1981 film.
