The Correct Thing (film #4 on Lifestyles USA, Vol. 2 (Something Weird, 2000)). [Category: Industrial]

Goofus and Gallant for secretaries. Sally is professional, efficient, punctual, polite, and dull as dishwater, while Cora is habitually late, spends work time gabbing or fixing her face, flirts with the office playboy, parties till 4:00 am, and is generally sexy and exciting. The stern female narrator tries to shame her, like Barbara in Habit Patterns, but Cora is having too much fun to care. Eventually, the narrator invades her dream life, and Cora dreams she's just like Sally and her reward is the boss telling the other board members what a dutiful little sla––I mean, employee––she is. Think this gets through to Cora, or indeed, the audience this was meant for? Naaaaa!!!

Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: ****. Weirdness: ***. Historical Interest: ****. Overall Rating: ****.
