I've never seen this title ever written out in long form. Is there some evidence for calling it anything other than 9 to 5? I mean, just look at the picture of the movie poster at the top of the article. If spelling out the title was just a way to disambiguate, then we should probably move the article to 9 to 5 (film) CzechOut talk | work 03:33, 24 August 2007 (UTC)

Heh, okay, I guess I should've looked at the movie poster. I guess it does say there NINE TO FIVE. Still, the relative size of the two titles kinda lets you know what the preferred title is, doesn't it? I mean, I know that IMDB lists it as such, but I gather that's simply because of an even greater need to disambig on their site. More modern versions of the DVD don't have "Nine to Five" on the front cover at all, preferring a stylized logo of "9 to 5". I still think that most people, when looking for this thing, will find it odd to note that this article is called "Nine to Five" when articles about the theme song and TV series use "9 to 5".

Fair use rationale for Image:9 to 5 moviep.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:9 to 5 moviep.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Adult Cinema Parody[edit]

Added information about the X-Rated parody, 8 to 4, released in 1981. Generally I wouldn't list such parodies, but this was quite a new phenomenon in the early 1980s, and this parody was shot on film and played in proper cinemas, so I feel it's worthy of a mention. I've included it under "popular culture."

I see someone has deleted the above mentioned adult parody. As usual, whoever did it did not explain why. Many other films have sections relating to their place in popular culture, including adult take-offs, so why should this film be any different? If you feel it's not appropriate SAY SO. You're not above the rest of us! If no one can come up with a good reason not to include it in the next couple weeks, I'm adding it back in. --HillbillyProfane (talk) 02:04, 18 September 2009 (UTC)
