What a way to make a living!
Based on the 1980 hit movie, this hilarious story of friendship and revenge in the Rolodex era is outrageous, thought-provoking and even a little romantic. Pushed to the boiling point, three female coworkers concoct a plan to get even with theirsexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical, manipulative and obnoxious boss: kidnap and hold him hostage in his own home while they get the ultimate revenge. But will their plot work? And can a team of secretaries really take control of the company that has always kept them down, and get ahead in the impenetrable boy’s club? Hey, a girl can scheme, can't she? Like the original movie, 9 to 5 is a comedic romp that tackles real issues—like women in the workplace and male/female relationships—while it is busy tickling funny bones. The fast-paced production mixes the daily grind with candy-colored musical theater fluff, tongue firmly planted in cheek.
Three unlikely friends take control of their office and learn there is nothing they can't do, even in a man's world.
