Office Christmas Party rolls out joke after joke like an ever-patient Santa with a bottomless bag of toys-plenty of 'em don't work, but only a Grinch wouldn't crack a smile as the party devolves into expected chaos.
The writers had a plum opportunity to satirize office stereotypes or make a salient point about them. But instead they went for the low-hanging fruit, expecting that audiences would look past the laziness.
Maybe it's because of all the depressing news... or ... the holidays and we are in dire need to see something lighthearted and, frankly, stupid right now, but this is temporarily satisfying. I guess that's all we can ask for this moment.
The celebration that goes too far is a movie comedy staple, but there's something a bit disturbing about Office Christmas Party's vision of corporate America self-immolating at the end of one terrible year.
