Thursday Movie Picks #459: Workplace: The Female Experience

Hello there and welcome to Thursday Movie Picks a weekly series where you share your movie picks each Thursday. The rules are simple: based on the theme of the week pick three to five movies and tell us why you picked them. For further details and the schedule visit the series main page here.


This week's Thursday Movie Picks is Workplace: The Female Experience


Sorry this is coming quite late. Anyway here are 3 that immediately came to mind

9 to 5 (1980)
This is sure to be a popular pick this week. And my guess part of its popularity when it was released was that women related to the sexism that occured in this fictional workplace.
Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy (2004)
I did not like this one…and I’m going to paste here what I wrote about it back in 2021 ——
I only saw it in 2016 and I didn't like it. I think we're suppose to laugh at these ridiculous sexist male characters in the seventies as if it was a thing of the past and society have progressed to be a better inclusive and respectful version. Then of course in 2017 and 2018 #MeToo and #TimesUp movement happened...and duhh...say all women...not quite a thing of the past issit? So yeah Anchorman has not aged well...and is so obviously written by men.

Boston Strangler (2023)
A movie about the two female reporters who reported on the Boston Strangler and the rampant sexism they faced at a time when most female journalists were relegated to writing for the home and lifestyle sections.

  1. Yes, we Match with 9 to 5. It's really funny and good ! I hate The Anchorman. I usually can laugh at the dumb Will Farrell comedies but this one I found insipid and crude. It wasn't funny at all.
    I do t know about this latest film on The Boston Strangler but would love to see it.

  2. Anchorman and Boston Strangler are such good choices! Didn't think of those at all.

  3. Boston Strangler sounds like something I need to watch.
