Welcome to Flavorwire’s streaming movie guide, in which we help you sift through the scores of movies streaming on Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, and other services to find the best of the recently available, freshly relevant, or soon to expire. We normally run this feature on Mondays, but figured it might be more helpful to you, the reader, in advance of the long Labor Day weekend. In the spirit of the holiday, we’ve picked out a few work-related titles, along with great stuff from Paul Rudd, Elizabeth Banks, Viggo Mortensen, Zooey Deschanel, Charlize Theron, Mike Birbiglia, Adam Scott, Rashida Jones, Robert Duvall, the Mystery Science Theater 3000 crew, and more. Check them out after the jump, and follow the title links to watch them right now.
Our Labor Day movie marathon begins where it must: with this 1980 workplace comedy from writer/director Colin Higgins (Harold and Maude). Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, and Dolly Parton play a trio of office workers harassed by their vile boss (Dabney Coleman) — until they turn the tables. It’s broad, goofy comedy, sure (enjoy those marijuana-inspired fantasy sequences), but with a sly feminist twist. (Streaming on Netflix Instant)
