So, just a heads up. This specific review was originally written at a time when I didn’t count on falling behind on reviews, so my solution was to cram them into a single post. However, I hated the way they turned out, so now I’m putting them into their own reviews. In short, this review is going to be crazy short. With that said, let’s carry on.

Cast: Jason Bateman (GAME NIGHT [2018], ZOOTOPIA [2016], GIFT [2015], and KINGDOM [2007]), Olivia Munn (THE PREDATOR [2018], LEGO NINJAGO [2017], X-MEN: APOCALYPSE [2016], and IRON MAN 2 [2010]), T.J. Miller (DEADPOOL [2016] and 2 [2018], EMOJI [2017], HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON [2010] and 2 [2014], and the upcoming UNDERWATER [2019]), Jennifer Aniston (STORKS [2016], and the upcoming MURDER MYSTERY [2019]), and Courtney B. Vance (BEN IS BACK [2018], THE MUMMY [2017], TERMINATOR GENISYS [2015], and the upcoming UNCORKED [2019])

Director: Josh Gordon and Will Speck (BLADES OF GLORY [2007] and THE SWITCH [2010])
Writer: Justin Malen (1 episode of TROPHY WIFE), Laura Solon (6 episodes of HOT IN CLEVELAND), and Dan Mazer (BRIDGET JONES’S BABY [2016])
Composer: Theodore Shapiro (COLLATERAL BEAUTY [2016])
Cinematographer: Jeff Cutter (10 CLOVERFIELD LANE [2016])

This is my honest opinion of: OFFICE CHRISTMAS PARTY

 

(REVIEW)

It’s a party movie set in an office building. What kind of comedic possibilities can you possibly come up with? The answer: none. It’s about as generic and predictable a modern party movie can get. Jason Bateman, Olivia Munn, Jennifer Aniston, and T.J. Miller are enjoyable enough, but both Kate McKinnon and Randall Park’s characters are just awkward and unbearable on screen. A couple jokes land, so it’s not a complete train-wreck, but there’s more than a few that are such clichés, even other bad movies do them better. While technically better than I thought, it’s still not a very good movie.

My honest rating for OFFICE CHRISTMAS PARTY: a weak 3/5
