An office manager (T.J. Miller) throws a wild Christmas party in the hope of finalizing a deal with a big-time client (Courtney B. Vance). If the party is unsuccessful and the client gets away, the manager's boss and older sister (Jennifer Aniston) will close the branch and lay off all of the employees. Jason Bateman, Olivia Munn, and Kate McKinnon co-star in this holiday comedy directed by Josh Gordon and Will Speck.~Daniel Gelb
I love the scene with "Jesus" on the horse riding through lmao, that's it that's the review lol, but no its a good modern Christmas movie, doesn't take itself too serious and it isn't an obvious in your face Christmas movie, I wish it was called office party instead so then ppl would really appreciate this movie as a Christmas movie
The perfect cast to make you laugh-out-loud at just about every scene in the movie. An out-of-control Office Christmas Party mixed with an adrenaline filled/hilarious chase scene. Jason Bateman is great as always in this comedy. Definitely will be added to my Christmas movie watch list each year!
enjoy the bad reviews as much as the movie. People are saying things like "I wish there had been more of a story..." Yeah, because hip comedies, like their indie movies, NEED A STORY! Come on, people...it's about absurd office antics around the Christmas Holidays and how one lad and his team attempt to save the company and all the jobs therein. It is a typical "OFFICE" comedy (if you don't know the franchise, check up on that first) featuring typical Jason Bateman-style gags. Lots of adult and "bathroom" humor....lots of moments so stupid that they are HILARIOUS!
If you have never worked for a large corp or in a big office setting, you might not get the reasons BEHIND the GAGS. Especially the running HR gag. Human resource managers are just over-paid glorified clerks. They are there not to help employees, but to help the company control the employees. This is about the PARTY that Human Resources would never condone! It is IN the face of the HR clerks. And, having worked in similar environments, I LOVED IT! It is PARTY movie, so yeah, you will see many modern PARTY references. Hey, some of it is distasteful. That is the point. This is about OFFICE PARTY today...not about your grandma's office party! So grab some popcorn, beers, hot chicks...and enjoy this Office Christmas Party like you are there!!!! This was released in the 2016 Christmas movie season, so right now, it is kind of OUT OF SEASON...but I just watched it and found it funny,even in may.
