Over a decade before The Spice Girls dished out their version of "Girl Power", Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin & Dolly Parton got there first in this battle-of-the-sexes comedy, in which they play three disgruntled secretaries who plot to kidnap their chauvinistic boss.
Highly enjoyable with solid performances and an ample amount of laughs, but probably made even more memorable by Dolly Parton's catchy title song.
