So you don't have to waste much of your time reading this review, and vicariously thinking about this movie, I'll cut to the chase. Unless you're a partying frat boy who spends most of his time on some kind of substance, you should stay very far away from Office Christmas Party.
As I am not a partying frat boy, you might be wondering why I watched this terrible movie. I was suckered in by the ridiculous weakness of forcing myself to watch every Jennifer Aniston movie in the world. I thought, since she and Jason Bateman received top billing, it was going to be a Christmas edition of the Horrible Bosses films, which I did find funny. It had nothing to do with those movies; it just happened to take place in an office.
Remember that group of boys in college who made student films over the weekend when they were drunk or high, and on Monday when they'd show their creation in class there would be the silence of crickets except for the creators themselves? They'd be giggling hysterically in the corner, remembering how funny their jokes and pratfalls had been at the time. And for some reason, they didn't understand or care that no one else thought their movie was funny, so they went out and did it again the next weekend. Office Christmas Party is a feature-length version of those terrible college videos. More than half the movie takes place at the party itself, and everyone drinks and does drugs to excess. The "shenanigans" the cast performs isn't at all funny to a sober audience who wasn't there at the time of the filming. Much as it breaks my heart, I'm forced to believe everyone involved in this movie has very bad taste.
Unless you want to see the voice of Mr. Mucinex in his natural human form, I can't imagine any other legitimate reason for wanting to watch this movie. And I urge you to restrain yourself and content yourself with the preview. You'll only waste two minutes of your life instead of two hours.
