Office Christmas Party

Critics Consensus

Its cast of gifted comics is good for a handful of laughs, but Office Christmas Party's overstuffed plot ultimately proves roughly as disappointing as its clichéd gags and forced sentimentality.

Critic Reviews for Office Christmas Party

All Critics (178) | Top Critics (33)

  • Even a third act demolition derby tribute to The Blues Brothers can't revitalize this stiff.

    Dec 9, 2016 | Rating: 0/5 | Full Review…
  • The rager's excesses are wholly predictable: cocaine, a lot of white people jumping up and down to DJ Kool, gay-panicky visuals with eggnog.

    Dec 9, 2016 | Full Review…
  • Yet another reminder that allowing your cast to madly improvise instead of actually providing a coherent script with a scintilla of logic often leads to a decline in sustained laughter.

    Dec 9, 2016 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • The supporting characters are the people who are funny. They're the people we care about. And every time the movie cuts from their mad antics ... the whole film starts to deflate a little, like a Mylar balloon from the discount party store.

    Dec 9, 2016 | Full Review…
  • A joyless, laughless - that's right, not even one laugh - affair that proves how indulgent and (worse) boring ensemble comedies such as this become when the ensemble has next to no natural chemistry and even less of a script to riff off of.

    Dec 9, 2016 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…
  • Like most office Christmas parties, you should skip it.
