In Jason Reitman‘s Labor Day, Kate Winslet once again plays a character who complicates her existence by jumping into bed with the wrong person. This time, it’s Josh Brolin’s sexy escaped convict who takes she and her son hostage. Before long, Stockholm syndrome and horny mommitis take over leading Winslet to attempt to build a life with the fugitive killer after discovering he can not only satisfy her physical needs, but do so while baking a pie. That’s just showing off.

Between the time period and the boy having to stay one step ahead of the law in order to protect their house guest, this film reminds me of The Iron Giant. Except for the pie sex.

This Labor Day weekend, as you prepare to pack away your white clothing and criticize your brother-in-law’s grilling ability, you’ll want to chill out with a movie or two. What better way to relax than with these nine work-related films that stick it to the man? Seriously, screw that guy.

9 to 5

When the siren call of Dolly Parton’s chest lures Dabney Coleman to the jagged rocks of desire, he finds himself in a tough situation. Tired of his sexist and egotistical attitude, the secretary pool abducts him and holds him hostage. While in their capture, Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, and Parton institute some new practices around the office that up productivity. Which really isn’t that easy with Parton’s chest hanging around.

F.I.S.T.

When jerk bosses are treating their workers poorly and garnishing wages, there’s only one man who can lead the Federation of Interstate Truckers and fight for what is good and just. And that man is Sly Stallone. He’s like Norma Rae, but instead of holding a sign, he holds a pipe. He also uses a different definition of the word “strike.”

Clerks

Kevin Smith‘s breakthrough film addressed the drudgery of working retail. Filmed for $19 in his home state of New Jersey, it didn’t win any awards for acting. However, it was well-received by critics and audiences all the same due to Smith’s strong dialogue and bizarre cast of characters.

UPDATE: EW reports that Josh Brolin is taking on the other lead as the “large, fearsome man” that Winslet’s character finds bleeding. The Coen Bros. have made sure he’s got that down pat.

Kate Winslet wants to take off her serious face and put on her not as serious face. The actress is in talks to star in Labor Day, Jason Reitman’s adaption of the Joyce Maynard novel that he’ll write and direct. Winslet will play “a single mother of a young son who takes in a stranger with a dangerous past. She falls in love with him over the course of Labor Day Weekend.” So no, it’s not a pregnancy comedy, if that’s what you were thinking. We all know Jason Reitman tackled that subject inĀ Juno, and he can’t possibly come up with anymore quirky synonyms for “baby” or “woman with child.” (Deadline)
