I was severely pissed off when women didn't storm the towers of Reagan's Corporate America and transform the landscape overnight. This movie gave me hope at an impressionable age! Maybe it is happening in real world slow motion. I hope so. It made me so gleeful to watch these ass-kicking ladies humanize their workplace. And it made me extra gleeful that it was Dabney Coleman they strung up.
Awesome ladies being mischievous. Ok, the fantasy sequences did seem goofy at first, but in the end they were just good ol' feminist daydreams about getting rid of a sexist pig, and the light-heartedness doesn't mask the feminine empowerment behind it all. Strongly tied to the social upheaval of the time, but also great fun, and exactly what I needed. Oh, and Tomlin has potential of becoming my spiritual leader!
