The brainchild of actress Jane Fonda, this highly enjoyable studio comedy—which marks the screen debut of country singer Dolly Parton—takes on the issue of women in the workplace, and is prescient in its treatment of sexual harassment. As office colleagues who exact revenge upon their good-for-nothing boss, Lily Tomlin, Fonda, and Parton exude real-life camaraderie in a number of scenes that give off a refreshing, almost improvised vibe. Fonda has said that she thought of Tomlin and Parton for the film after she had seen the former onstage and heard the latter on the radio. Not only a record of a great collaboration, the film marked the beginning of a decades-long association. Indeed, Fonda and Tomlin are presently the stars of the Netflix series Grace and Frankie, currently in its fifth season.
