Judy Bernly, a housewife whose husband has left her for his secretary, begins her own secretarial career at a huge corporation. Violet Newstead, a feisty, veteran office manager, instructs her on the perils and procedures of office life -- and of working for Franklin Hart Jr., their chauvinistic, sleazy boss, and his right-hand woman, the crisp, nosy Roz . Meanwhile, Hart's endless attempts to seduce his happily married secretary, Doralee Rhodes, lead the entire office to think she's a trollop. When Hart unfairly passes Violet over for a promotion, she drowns her sorrows at a local bar with Judy and Doralee, who regales the others with tales of Hart's epic advances. Later, at Doralee's house, the women smoke pot, eat barbecue, and concoct hilarious revenge fantasies -- a rodeo hog-tie, a Wild West shootout, and a gothic Snow White scenario -- about killing their boss. When a mix-up leads the women to think they have accidentally poisoned Hart's coffee, they hatch a scheme to protect themselves by stealing Hart's body from the morgue. When he turns up alive, never having drunk the coffee, they must kidnap him to prevent him from blackmailing them or calling the police. The women then use the occasion of their boss' absence to effect some changes around the office. ~ Brian J. Dillard, Rovi
