Time To Get Back To Work Because '9 To 5' Is Getting Remade, And You'll Actually Be Excited For It

- Page 1

Watching 9 To 5 as a young woman was always a fun experience. There was something so satisfying about watching these three smart women work together to take down their corrupt boss .

Sure, we could argue about the legalities of them holding their boss captive, but what's the fun in that! He was a bad man who was lying, blackmailing, and was just all around evil, so the fact that they had to trap him to find out that he was embezzling money from the company is not the point.

My main takeaway, as a younger girl who didn't understand that holding someone captive was highly illegal, was that I always thought it was awesome to see three smart women manage to make choices that a man couldn't.

They made some seriously impressive changes

They implemented a daycare, they established equal pay between male and female employees, and they allow flexible scheduling which all makes the company run better while making the employees work harder.

Obviously, when Hart, the mean boss, gets back, he is promoted to help implement all these changes in a Brazilian operation, but we find out that it goes poorly.

Luckily, the women who actually made these advancements in the company were able to move up or move on in ways they wanted to, but I think that there was just something powerful about it.

With basically every movie getting a remake, it's always just a matter of time before our favorites are next in line, and recently the 9 To 5 classic we all know and love has been picked as the next project.

But before you get mad, you've got to hear what they have planned...

'Backdraft' Is Getting A Sequel 27 Years After The Original, With Only One Of The Original Stars

Few movies have given us as exciting of a look at the life of a firefighter as Backdraft. The Chicago-based thriller followed the fire department as they take on some big fires and some big drama.The cast was really impressive, and included big names like Robert De Niro, Kurt Russell, Billy Baldwin, and Donald Sutherland. With such an impressive cast, you'd expect a guaranteed hit, but it received mixed reviews. However, despite the mixed reviews, the movie made a good chunk of change at the box office and now they are trying to make it happen again. Universal PicturesThat's


'Men In Black' Reboot Reveals Who They've Cast As The Stars Of The New Movie

I know, I know, no more reboots! Everyone is sick of our favorite movies getting made over and over again, but Hollywood seems to be out of ideas and they've got to make something. This time it's going to be a remake of arguably the best Will Smith movie ever: Men In Black. Sony plans to go the Jurassic World route, and introduce new characters in the already established world. So I guess it's not so much a reboot as a spin-off. The new movie is not set to feature either Tommy Lee Jones's Agent K or Will Smith's Agent


Where Are The Cast Members From 'A League Of Their Own' Now?

A League Of Their Own was one of the most iconic movies of the 90s. I know for me, it would come on TV at least once a month, and every time I would find myself drawn in, watching it even though I probably should have been doing anything else. Between Geena Davis's confident Dotti Hinson, and Tom Hanks's cranky Jimmy Dugan, the movie was irresistible. Every character was well-developed and brought something to the movie, and together they told a story that touched a lot of hearts. It has been over 25 years since A League Of Their Own


The Trailer For The Mr. Rogers Documentary Has Been Released And It's Absolutely Heartwarming

Few things are as sacred as Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood. The classic PBS children's show was on for 31 seasons, and even though it hasn't been filmed since 2001, it's still beloved to this day. Fred Rogers hosted the show with a kindness that can best be described as neighborly - at least that's what I think he would want to be described as. He was sweet, caring, and honest with his viewers, teaching them all the things they needed to learn.Every show started with the same song, while Rogers pulled on a cozy cardigan and asked us all if
