Judy is a quite woman that has to enter the work force after several years of being a housewife when her husband leaves her for another woman. At her new job she is trained by Violet an intelligent woman that has been with the company for 12 years and is always passed up for promotions. Soon after starting work Judy starts hearing rumors about Doralee, Mr. Coleman’s secretary, and Mr. Coleman having an affair. But it is not long before the three women have had enough of Coleman’s sexist behavior and lies and they join forces. First it starts simple enough with them just discussing what they would like to do to him; but then it escalates and they realize they actually have a chance to teach him a lesson and make their work environment a better place.

This movie was very powerful when it first came out and it hasn’t lost any of that over time. To get the points across though they use comedy and it works. I am glad to see that this special edition got what it deserved. You have commentary by the producer, Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin and Dolly Parton, there are 10 deleted scenes, a gag reel, Nine to Five karaoke, and a Remembering Colin Higgins feature. But the feature that fans will probably enjoy most is the Nine @ 25 feature. This has recent interviews with the main cast as they take a look back on how the movie was made and the impact it had. This version is truly a gem for any fan.
