Judy (Fonda), Violet (Tomlin) and Doralee (Parton) couldn’t be more different from each other, but they bond over being mistreated by their boss: he yells at Judy on her first day, consistently takes credit for Violet’s ideas and sexually harasses Doralee. Fed up with him, and the sexist practices of their offices, they dream of his removal. Based on an idea by Fonda, who had just formed her own production company, this is a brazen comedy that wears its politics on its sleeve. With an inspiring friendship at its heart, it’s film that celebrates women supporting each other – and feels even more relevant now.
