Random Personal Assistants To Tyrannical Movie Bosses

  • Zara Young From 'Jurassic World' on Random Personal Assistants To Tyrannical Movie Bosses

    (#6) Zara Young From 'Jurassic World'

    Who’s The Assistant? Zara Young (Katie McGrath) is on it. She’s composed and constantly has her eye on the prize. She’s even completely willing to babysit two teenage boys. 

    Who’s The Boss? Claire Dearing (Bryce Dallas Howard) is the park operations manager of Jurassic World. She takes type-A to a new extreme. After all, she spends most of a life-threatening situation running in heels. She’s all business and, while she’s not the worst boss on this list, she definitely does have her priorities out of order. Also, considering the number of lives lost, she may not be the best at her job. 

    Most Humiliating Moment: Zara’s last moments on Earth are horrifying. She’s pulled into the air by a Pteranodon, only to be dropped and fought over by another Pteranodon, then eaten by the epic Mosasaurus.

  • Catwoman on Random Personal Assistants To Tyrannical Movie Bosses

    (#7) Catwoman

    • Maggie, Catwoman, Batman: New Times, Grayson, Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Part 2, Fight Batman Fight!, Batman: Year One, DC Showcase: Catwoman, Batman, The Dark Knight Rises, Batman Returns, Alyas Batman en Robin, DC Universe

    Who’s The Assistant? Selina Kyle (Michelle Pfeiffer) is painfully single and insanely shy. Focused on doing the best job possible, she’s awkward and so anxious she often stumbles over her words. She is making her best effort but is still completely dismissed by her boss. 

    Who’s The Boss? Max Schreck (Christopher Walken) is a real-estate developer, owner of the local department store, and overall horrible capitalist. It is an understatement to say he's dishonest. He’s slain people. He dismisses Selina and treats her like a coffee wench. When she stumbles onto one of his secret plots, he attempts to off her. 

    Most Humiliating Moment: This one is a tie. Selina tries to interject at a meeting, but Max is quick to dismiss her in front of Bruce Wayne (Michael Keaton) in a totally degrading way. Bring thrown out of a window of a huge office building does come in a close second. Although, that does turn her into Catwoman. 

  • Guy From 'Swimming with Sharks' on Random Personal Assistants To Tyrannical Movie Bosses

    (#10) Guy From 'Swimming with Sharks'

    Who’s The Assistant? Guy (Frank Whaley) is a recent film grad with his eye on a career in the film industry. He’s ambitious and optimistic, and believes that he has what it takes to make it in the entertainment industry. He's professional and really does try to be the nicest he can be in the office. 

    Who’s The Boss? Buddy Ackerman (Kevin Spacey) is a movie mogul and total nightmare of a human being. He’s not above publicly belittling his assistants and talking to them like they are garbage. He makes impossible requests like trashing every issue of Time magazine or staying at the office after 11 pm to record a program. He takes out his workplace anxiety and personal issues on his assistant, perpetuating the cycle of overworked assistants in the movie industry. 

    Most Humiliating Moment: Guys asks Buddy to speak to him with respect and not yell at him in front of his co-workers. Buddy proceeds to tell him he is “nothing” and needs to “be a man.” Buddy pelts him with office supplies and tells him he "doesn’t matter." This is one of the key moments that causes Guy to eventually turn on Buddy. 

  • Doralee Rhodes on Random Personal Assistants To Tyrannical Movie Bosses

    (#3) Doralee Rhodes

    • 9 to 5

    Who’s The Assistant? Doralee Rhodes (Dolly Parton) is a kind Southern woman just trying to support herself and her husband. She’s overly friendly and willing to put up with a lot. But do not take her for a fool - she does carry a sidearm in her purse. She’s very intelligent and often underestimated because of her looks. 

    Who’s The Boss? Franklin Hart Jr. (Dabney Coleman) is an executive at - the ingeniously named - Consolidated Companies. He manages the secretarial pool like a tyrant. He doesn’t allow his employees to have personal items at their desk. He belittles his female employees and blocks them from getting promotions they deserve. He believes women are beneath him and, worst of all, he harasses women.

    Most Humiliating Moment: Doralee can handle Hart even when she has to fight him off from trying to sexually assault her. But the most humiliating moment is when she realizes all of her co-workers have been cold because they think she’s sleeping with her boss.

  • Andrea Sachs on Random Personal Assistants To Tyrannical Movie Bosses

    (#1) Andrea Sachs

    • The Devil Wears Prada

    Who’s The Assistant? Aspiring journalist Andrea “Andy” Sachs (Anne Hathaway) gets the opportunity to interview for Runway magazine. While not remotely a fashionista, she takes the job because it will open up a ton of opportunity. Over time, she starts giving more of her time and attention to try and help her unpleasable boss. Eventually, Andy gets an epic makeover and finds herself doing unscrupulous things to succeed. However, the struggle between her integrity and her ambition becomes a major part of this comedy. 

    Who’s The Boss? Miranda Priestly (Meryl Streep) runs fashion behemoth Runway magazine. Imagine Vogue and Anna Wintour, but unofficially. Miranda runs her magazine with an iron fist. Women must wear heels at all times. She likes things her way or not at all. She asks for the impossible like travel plans during a hurricane or a copy of the top-secret Harry Potter manuscript during the height of the book's popularity. And, if you displease her, be prepared for a scathing verbal lashing and her purse thrown in your face. 

    Most Humiliating Moment: While Andy faces many indignities, the popular cerulean smackdown is an epic burn. Andy scoffs at two belts looking exactly the same. And she gets a verbal lashing from Miranda in front of the entire editorial team. She breaks down the entire fashion industry while also pointing out that Andy is far from being as individual as she thinks.

  • Tess McGill on Random Personal Assistants To Tyrannical Movie Bosses

    (#5) Tess McGill

    • Working Girl, Working Girl

    Who’s The Assistant? Tess McGill (Melanie Griffith) is an enterprising woman from Staten Island. Despite her working-class upbringing, she has her eyes set on a career in Manhattan’s finance industry. She’s worked as a secretary for multiple men who have disrespected her based on her looks. One even sends her to a meeting with a man who uses illicit substances and tries to sexually assault her. As an assistant, she’s not only willing to do anything and everything, she also has strong ambition, which she describes as "a head for business and a body for sin."

    Who’s The Boss? Katharine Parker (Sigourney Weaver) is the opposite of Tess. She’s worldly and cosmopolitan. At first, she appears to be about creating a respectful and equal working environment. She even lets Tess share ideas. But soon, Tess finds herself helping her boss try on ski boots and housesitting for her. She also learns Katharine took her idea and passed it off as her own. 

    Most Humiliating Moment: While it is unfortunate to have an idea taken without being credited, Katharine having Tess destarch her dress and underwear while she’s wearing them is pretty degrading.
