Absolutely hilarious!!
11 September 2008 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

Absolutely hilarious. I haven't seen the show in a while as I have to say I prefer the demon-hunting series, "Supernatural". However I saw the Dinner Party episode in a repeat and it was brilliant. Jim and Pam were hilarious trying to escape the dinner party from Hell, and turning on each other when their plans are foiled. Jan's apparent belief in Michael's false claims that Pam was in love with him and Pam's disgust and mortification at the thought revealed that Jenna Fischer has very good comic skills. If only Michael and Jan and Jim and Pam were at the party it could easily be a funnier, Scranton-based "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf".

Dwight's non-invite is almost heart-breaking, but his luck turns by the end of the episode, after he ditches his "date" (who is really his baby-sitter), played by the wonderful underrated and under-appreciated actress Beth Grant, and gets to take Michael to stay at his home after the domestic disturbances get the police involved.
