This movie is NOT a modern day "9 to 5" kind of film, as the teaser trailer implies. (SPOILER ALERT) The 3 leading ladies do not team up against Roger Ailes. The elevator scene in the teaser trailer is the ONE AND ONLY TIME that all 3 leading ladies are together in the story. Their stories are pretty much separate from each other. The elevator is the only moment with all three and it plays exactly like the trailer, minus the actor and title text. It is a good thing the rest of the movie is funny and entertaining. Otherwise, I would have left the theater very angry!

I was hesitant to go see this movie because I thought it would be boring, but it was everything but boring! I loved it! It really makes you think about what some women go through on a daily basis at work and in positions in a mans world. Very inspiring.

Gives light to how women have been treated, scared and repressed in the workforce. I remember the story leaking, it was a nice refresher more than just the news story we heard.

I don’t know if this is a compliment or not, but I spent the whole movie trying to force myself to see Charlize Theron and not Meghan Kelly. It was distracting because of how well she portrayed her. Is there such thing as portraying someone too well?

very interesting. learned alot of the situation. was uncomfortable to watch at times but dealt with the topic well. it felt a bit like a jab at trump, Fox news, all the people at support them, and Republicans in general. I don't know how well that will be received in the general audience. but I liked it

I enjoyed the movie. It’s the start of sexual expectations from a male dominated workplace in order for women to advance.

it's ironic how this movie is about harrasment and abuse of human rights, but it's infuriating show the writers in this so called movie use the name of Our Lord and Saviour JESUS Christ in vain! Have some respect!!!!

Didn't know much about the subject matter, but was educated on it throughout the movie. Charlize was her usual stellar self, Margot shined, but Nicole Das bland.

The actors throw themselves into their roles with terrific zeal, enlivened by the often blunt dialogue and the issues at stake.

Despite an overly polished and broad approach, the film is ultimately a persuasive portrait, guided by strong performances from Charlize Theron and Nicole Kidman as anchors who decide they can stay silent no longer.

Whatever beliefs they may hold about other people’s humanity, I’m glad these women finally received justice from the network that wronged them. I’m just not sure that translates into wanting to spend two hours in their company.
