“Nine to Five” was a critically acclaimed 1980 comedy that starred Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, Dolly Parton, and Dabney Coleman. The movie parody will provide many of the hilarious moments that were on screen. The story tells of Violet Newstead who is stuck at a dead end job working under a boss that she trained. She is at her wit’s end. When the boss’ good natured secretary and a new hire have also had enough, their revenge fantasy becomes a comedic reality in a scheme that wildly spins out of control.
