The film, for all its failures, works as an effective catalogue of life in the modern-day office, an assortment of absurdities, fictions and religious rituals that we somehow mistook for normal.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

Like most office Christmas parties, you should skip it.

Office Christmas Party is yet another wacky entry into the increasingly tedious modern genre known as "big stupid party where crazy stuff happens movie".

Have you ever worked for a company that failed miserably, despite all the wonderful and talented people working there? Office Christmas Party is the holiday comedy movie version of such a business.

This yuletide comedy is more like a Secret Santa gift you don't want.

Office Christmas Party, cobbled together by six writers, doesn't have the confidence to build its story through the interplay of its employees, and it soon tires of office politics.

You know those office Christmas parties where everyone tries to look like they're having a good time, but they're really not? Well, it's playing at a theatre near you.

Talk about holiday buzzkill. This pooped party brings you down from all the jokes that don't land and the flop sweat pouring off good actors whose forced cheer is exhausting.

It's a film destined for iTunes rental status, but kept from flatlining with a pretty dependable string of stupid yet funny one-liners ...

The actors are reduced to independent contractors, brought in to patch up subplots that don't add up to a cohesive whole. You admire their individual talent while the movie around them sags and lurches.

Sometimes the movie, directed by Josh Gordon and Will Speck, is too obviously just a framework for its stars to deploy goofy schtick, but the overall package is naughty, inappropriate fun.

A tiny bit of invention and a few good laughs emerge. Which is what you'd hope from a cast featuring some of the funniest actors around, among them Kate McKinnon, Jason Bateman, Jennifer Aniston, Rob Corddry, T.J. Miller and Jillian Bell.

The delightfully debauched holiday desecration we need this year.

Office Christmas Party is never as lively or hilarious as one hoped. Attendance is not mandatory.
