office-christmas-party

Starring: Jason Bateman, Olivia Munn, T. J. Miller, Jennifer Aniston, Jillian Bell, Courtney B. Vance, Kate McKinnon, Jamie Chung, Rob Corddry, Abbey Lee, Karan Soni, Matt Walsh

OUR RATING: ★★★☆☆

Story: Comedy directed by Josh Gordon and Will Speck, the story centers on CEO, Carol (Jennifer Aniston) who tries to close her hard-partying brother’s branch, so he and his Chief Technical Officer rally their co-workers and host an epic office Christmas party in an effort to impress a potential client and close a sale that will save their jobs, but the party gets way out of hand.

Verdict: This is certainly not a movie that offers anything different from every other movie of this type. It’s for the most part a funny, entertaining film and the ensemble cast deliver as expected. If you like this type of comedy then you’re not going to be disappointed.
