|0:33||Diving straight in with the song, I’m here for it.|
|5:41||Consolidated Companies is wonderfully vague.|
|10:13||Yay Doralee. Dolly. Same thing!|
|13:42||“I’ve been chased by swifter men than you and I ain’t been caught yet.”|
|17:18||Look at the size of that photocopier!|
|23:25||Dolly is so cute! “That hurts my feelings.”|
|31:39||Don’t blame them but it’s something to stalk out in the middle of the day and go drinking.|
|42:27||In and out of a lasso is the weirdest wipe I’ve ever seen in a movie.|
|44:34||The spoon disappeared!|
|54:34||All the coincidences, eek!|
|56:33||No hospital would just leave a dead body out in a hallway like that.|
|1:00:08||I like her car fits three people in the front seat.|
|1:03:39||“You steal the wrong body from the hospital and all you can say is ‘I must have made a mistake?’|
|1:15:15||All of their dreams came true… and turned to nightmares.|
|1:21:38||It’s quite the set up they have rigged there.|
|1:26:52||These women!! Why has no one paid attention to this movie?|
|1:31:23||“I followed you from the office…” is not the way to convince someone you like them.|
|1:37:11||What kind of exercise program would need your wife to be out of the house a week? I’d be asking more questions, Missy.|
|1:45: 53||“Here’s to the beginning!”|
This movie was not what I’d expected it to be at all! The start and the end kinda were - women sticking it to the man and getting one over on their misogynistic boss - but the middle, oh boy that goes places I certainly didn’t expect.
Stealing bodies from hospitals, tying up people for weeks, WEEKS, in their own homes, the dream sequences with cartoon bunnies and stuff… I couldn’t quite believe what I was seeing.
So, love the song, and Dolly Parton, and the idea of them getting their revenge at the end, but also… not a fan.
