Fonda’s stage work in the late 1950s laid the foundation for her film career in the 1960s. She averaged almost two movies a year throughout the decade, starting in 1960 with Tall Story, in which she recreated one of her Broadway roles as a college cheerleader pursuing a basketball star, played by Anthony PerkinsPeriod of Adjustment and Walk on the Wild Side followed in 1962.

In 1980, Fonda starred in 9 to 5 with Lily Tomlin and Dolly Parton. The film was a huge critical and box office success, becoming the second highest-grossing release of the year.[52] Fonda had long wanted to work with her father, hoping it would help their strained relationship.[44] She achieved this goal when she purchased the screen rights to the play On Golden Pond, specifically for her father and her.

In 1990, she starred in the romantic drama Stanley & Iris (1990) with Robert De Niro, which was her last film for 15 years. The film did not fare well at the box office.

In 2005, she returned to the screen with the box office success Monster-in-Law, starring opposite Jennifer Lopez.[44] Two years later, Fonda starred in the Garry Marshall-directed drama Georgia Rule alongside Felicity Huffman and Lindsay Lohan.
