9 to 5 was recommended by the Librarian. While it seems an odd choice for this group to review, they guys had lots of fun discussing this as well as bringing in a female perspective from the Librarian herself. Since Chris is always so picky, I hope you will listen to what he does like about this film and see if Brodie and Ash actually enjoy this picture. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0080319/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1 (9 to 5) Ash - /9 Brodie - /9 Chris - /9 Librarian - /9
