Storyline Heading
When the CEO tries to close her hard-partying brother's branch, he and his Chief Technical Officer must 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.
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy - This is a raunchy and crude comedy aimed at adult moviegoers, and despite the title, the holiday theme is not too strong. This is an ensemble piece featuring a number of known stars, but some actors such as Jason Bateman, T.J. Miller, and Olivia Munn have larger roles than others, such as Jennifer Aniston and Kate McKinnon, have much smaller ones. Constant language, crude sex humor, and drug use make the film not for kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Average "Office Christmas Party” serves as yet another reminder that allowing your cast to madly improvise (as evident with an unnecessary end-credits blooper reel) instead of actually providing a coherent script with a scintilla of logic often leads to a decline in sustained laughter.

Rolling Stone Full Review
Poor ...this pooped party brings you down from all the jokes that don't land and the flop sweat pouring off good actors whose forced cheer is exhausting. ...they score so many laughs and hint at the wild thing that Office Christmas Party could have been if it didn't take itself so damn seriously. Bummer.

Slant Magazine Full Review
Below Average Playing off of actors' established brands is just about the only thing going for this all-star comedy, which essentially plays as a collision course of familiar personas. Josh Gordon and Will Speck's Office Christmas Party generally smacks of trying too hard to earn its laughs.
