Theme song

Main article: 9 to 5 (Dolly Parton song)

The movie's theme song, "9 to 5", written and recorded by Parton, became one of her biggest hits of the decade. It went to number one for two weeks on the Billboard Hot 100, as well as the U.S. country singles charts, and was nominated for several awards, including the Academy Award for Best Song. It won the 1981 People's Choice Award for "Favorite Motion Picture Song", and two 1982 Grammy Awards: for "Country Song of the Year" and "Female Country Vocal of the Year" (it was nominated for four Grammys). Additionally, it was certified platinum by the RIAA.

At the same time, newcomer Sheena Easton was enjoying her first major hit in the UK with a song also titled "9 to 5". With the success of Parton's song, and to avoid confusion, Easton's record company renamed her recording "Morning Train (9 to 5)" for its North American release.

Television series

Main article: 9 to 5 (TV series)

The movie inspired a sitcom version which aired from 1982 to 1983 and from 1986 to 1988. The show, which aired on ABC (1982-83) and in first run syndication (1986-88), featured Parton's younger sister, Rachel Dennison, in Parton's role, and Rita Moreno and Valerie Curtin took over Tomlin and Fonda's roles, respectively. In the second version of the show, Sally Struthers replaced Moreno. A total of 85 episodes were filmed.

man this is such an enjoyable comedy movie 2 watch, its got such a great cast throughout this movie.....I think that this is such a really well written/acted/directed movie 2 watch, its got such a good cast throughout this movie.....

The film concerns three working women living out their fantasies of getting even with, and their successful overthrow of, the company's autocratic, "sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot" boss.

9 to 5 was a hit, grossing over $3.9 million in its opening weekend in the U.S. and is the 20th highest-grossing comedy film. As a star vehicle for Parton -- already established as a successful singer and songwriter -- it launched her permanently into mainstream popular culture. Although a television series based on the film was less successful, a musical version of the film (also titled 9 to 5), with new songs written by Parton, opened on Broadway on April 30, 2009.

9 to 5 is number 74 on the American Film Institute's "100 Funniest Movies" and is rated "82% fresh" on Rotten Tomatoes.

***Due to the recent RT changes that have basically ruined my past reviews, I mostly only giving a rating rather than a full review.***

The film starts off promising enough, especially with great zingers delivered by Lily Tomlin, but evolves into mayhem. It's kind of easy to see where the script wasn't properly fleshed out before production started, and hence the third act of the film suffers. Jane Fonda has a more understated role here, but Lily Tomlin and Dolly Parton shine bright.

hadn't seen it in years. got a few good laughs out of it. sadly some of the things that the movie touched on like job sharing, daycare at the office, equal pay for women and flexible job schedules exists in only a scant few companies in the USA 34 years after this movie came out.

Pretty impressive when a movie is still hilarious 30+ years after it was made.

A story of working women who rebel against sexism on the job, full of comedy,
and a blockbuster cast of Dabney Coleman, Lily Tomlin, Jane Fonda, and the incredible Dolly Parton, who wrote and sang the title song, which became a big hit. Pure entertainment with a needed message addressing the worst and most harmful prejudice in human history.

Quite an interesting movie with some laugh on human behaviours working in a large corporation, and dealing with a chauvinist boss. THe ladies managed to deal with the boss using their brain, and worth to watch!

"Nine To Five" is a comedy about 3 ladies (Judy, a new worker; Violet, a very efficient worker but never promoted; Doralee a secretary) working for Franklin Hart Jr, a boss with a lack of sympathy for its co-workers, especially to women. Those 3 ladies will one day reunite each other after a party and dream about how to "get rid" of their boss. However what the 3 characters don't know is that those dreams will somehow become true, and they will eventually need to kidnap the boss...
As far-fetched as it sounds, the story is actually rather well implemented and is rather funny. The depiction of the work environment and the unfairness to women is also a good premise.

A funny, feminist-friendly movie that deserves a 21st century remake.

The laughs are sparse until the plot gets going - about halfway through the film

I love it for the clear themes of how misogyny and slut shaming sucks. And Dolly Parton.

You know, I like the mash up of Fonda, Tomlin, and Parton I just wish the movie was as likable as they are.

Actually downgraded this - was worse than I remembered. The three leads are great and I liked the idea of the downtrodden office workers, but it goes too heavily into the revenge and becomes boring. I also hated the three revenge fantasies. Too long and pointless.

The play going around now in 2013, certainly lacks both the charm and the humor of the movie and focuses in on the raunch for humor. Would not recommend.
April 12, 2013
Boringly obvious sexual politics and a dud script - what a waste of the three excellent leading ladies. Ironic that what Hollywood allows as a mainstream feminism movie has such little insight to share about the plight of women fighting for equality in the workplace, instead turning to an insipid farce in a failed attempt to generate some laughs.

This is hilarious, i used to love watching this when i was younger! The three leads here work so well off of each other, and the dialogue between them could not be more perfect. I love the dark humor here too, my favorite type and Lily Tomlin cracks me up every time, her facial expressions are from another planet.

This movie was great for it's age. Lily Tomlin is funny!
