Office Christmas Party Reviews

Office Christmas Party has assembled a hell of a cast but the group proves unable to move beyond the ho-hum work from directing duo of Josh Gordon and Will Speck or the thin-yet-overstuffed, cliché-riddled screenplay to come up with consistent laughs.

Like a real Christmas office party, the film of the same name takes a while to warm up and regale itself to the audience.

Not quite a Christmas turkey, and not quite a sparkling glass of fizz either, this is intermittently funny. The meant-to-be-boring section, where everyone at the party is just looking glum, is boring and I sat there in the cinema just looking glum.

There are scant laughs in this rambunctious, overstuffed piece of boilerplate comedy that only seems to confirm that whatever software the studios are employing to create the scenarios for its comedies is grievously malfunctioning.

It's definitely a movie enhanced by a cinema viewing with a big audience and it has enough in it to feel that the escapism it tries to deliver. Just don't be surprised if you end up wanting to leave the party early.

Everyone here is capable of more than this (maybe not the directors, however), though I can't imagine it hurts a lot to earn a paycheck this way, and maybe that's the appeal.

This is one movie which you either love or hate. I fall under the latter category, but that's just me.

... another sub-par Christmas "comedy" in which actors play characters that are more like guesses about what real people are like than representations of actual human people.
June 26, 2017
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.
February 21, 2017
There are large impressive stunts, pratfalls and chaos, but seldom does Office Christmas Party ever actually shock or delight in the way that it thinks it does.

A lot of the gags are too over-the-top or simply don't land.
January 4, 2017
Office Christmas Party is a prime example of the pitfalls of throwing Hollywood resources at an under-developed screenplay, hoping the actors will save your ass on the set.
March 22, 2017
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 set-pieces and memorable supporting characters do a lot to help it in the long run, but with a cast as stacked as the one it has, you can't help but be confused why it wasn't any better either.

December 7, 2016
For a movie that was advertised as the wildest bash of the year, "Office Christmas Party" has a few too many plotlines and not enough actual debauchery.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
December 7, 2016
A disturbing ode to capitalism and an ill-conceived waste of talent.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
December 8, 2016
Reeks of desperation and an incessant need to have fun at every turn.

December 8, 2016
A comedy that doesn't decide between being provocative or appealing to the Christmas spirit. [Full review in Spanish]
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
December 12, 2016
It only exists to be forgotten - once it's pried a hundred million dollars or so from the clutches of hopelessly optimistic comedy fans. Don't let it.

There are laughs to be had, but this certainly won't be considered a Christmas classic in years to come.
