To save his staff’s jobs from his spiteful sister and CEO of the company Carol (Jennifer Aniston), slacker branch manager Clay (T.J Miller) decides to throw a big Christmas party in order to convince a potential client (Courtney B. Vance) to do business with them. But with only hours to pull off the biggest and best party with the help of his staff (Jason Bateman and Olivia Munn) can Zenoteck keeps their jobs and having a rocking office Christmas party?
Sadly I missed my office Christmas party this year due to being ill, but the experience of watching Office Christmas Party would probably be as similar as attending said party. Meaning some bits will be fun and provide some chuckles with some likeable characters while other moments consist of waiting around for the next fun sequence or having to spend time with annoying people you’d rather avoid. Like many an office Christmas party this film is fun enough but is kind of forgettable, or with moments you wish you could forget.
I’m probably being a little mean spirited, it’s not a bad film and it did make me laugh, it’s just not anything special and it pales in comparison with other Christmas movies. But if you’re looking for Christmas themed comedy with plenty of raunchy humour this may provide you with some festive distraction.
Rating 2.5/5 – amusing enough but a distinctly average Xmas movie
P.S -Merry Christmas everyone!
