Office Christmas Party Review: Just Another Raunchy Comedy

The Hit:

This flick was a comedy with the same type of raunchy humor that we have seen in the past. The only difference was that it was in an office setting.There are a lot of well-known actors in this movie including: Jason Bateman, T.J. Miller, Jennifer Aniston, Jillian Bell, Rob Corddry, Olivia Munn, and many more. You will also recognize some cast members from Saturday Night Live.

In the film,T.J Miller's character has inherited a business from his late father, but his sister, played by Jennifer Aniston, has been waiting to shut down his branch for a long time. She visits the branch with the intention of shutting it down. Everyone at the office knows that she is not there for a friendly visit. 

Later in the film she lets the office employees know that she will shut the branch down if they don't land a big contract in the next couple of days. So, T.J. Miller's character throws a Christmas party to reel in a big-wig and get him to sign a contract so that the employees' jobs are kept intact. This is when everything gets crazy and, like I mentioned, we see a lot of crazy and funny things, but it the same stuff we have seen before in typical movies like this. 

I had a few laughs and the story was decent, but I went in with low expectations and left the same way. If you just want some laughs or have been really excited for this then go watch it yourself, because your experience may be different. But for me, this was a movie that was just mediocre. 

The Verdict:
YELLOW LIGHT (Proceed with Caution)
