Way ahead of its time, 9 to 5 takes a very candid look at the struggle for women in the workplace. As they come to terms with their sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot of a boss, these women inadvertently kidnap Mr. Hart and change their office around for the better of employees across the board. Starring Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, Dolly Parton, and Dabney Coleman, 9 to 5 has rightfully claimed its place as both a comedy classic film and song.
A lot has changed since 1980, but there is definitely still a place for a film to examine women in the business space. What changes should be made to bring this film into the now? Who are the perfect actresses to pick up the phone and take this call? Find out, as we’re about to Remake 9 to 5 RIGHT!

What IS Remake This Movie RIGHT?
Remake This Movie RIGHT! is a podcast where we take a classic film that is actively being remade by Hollywood studio execs, and craft our own version for a modern retelling. Does the story need updating? Should characters or motives be tweaked? Do we need more muppets? We take all factors into account, concoct our singular film, and then offer a Final Pitch to you in movie trailer form. By the end of each episode, we will Remake This Movie RIGHT!
Our show is broken down into three distinct parts:
The Original: We discuss the original film’s impact on us and history, some quick trivia bits, what worked the best from the film and therefore must remain in our upcoming remake, as well as what didn’t work or what needs to be changed for today’s audiences. Most importantly, should this film even be remade?
The Remake: We put together our movie! What story do we want to tell, how close to the original will it be, who will star, and ultimately who should direct our eventual cinematic masterpiece? Our hosts work together to put together one cohesive movie, but there is one caveat – Each host has one ‘CUT!’ throughout the episode to employ, which could completely derail the entire film.
The Final Pitch: This is where we summarize our remake by utilizing the voice talents of voiceover artist Wayne Henderson and present our finished remake to you in movie trailer parody form!
