Crazy Credits

After the Paramount Pictures logo ends it goes directly to the Dreamworks Pictures logo, and when the Reliance Entertainment almost ends, a star is added on top of the "A" and four black dots is added on the bottom of the "A" and when the logo is fading out the "A" on the logo is changed to a Christmas tree on a pie in the office. During these logos a mix of ''Merry Christmas and happy new year'' and "Deck The Halls" is played. See more »

Hollywood Continues its Recent Pattern of Bad Comedies
11 December 2016 | by angryvilleSee all my reviews

The studios have been in a recent pattern of putting out some really disappointing "comedies," "Hail, Caesar" and "Masterminds" spring to mind first, and you can add "Office Christmas Party" to the list.

Potentially a great cast, an "R" rating which means they don't have to restrain the writing, and..............DUD. Especially with an "R" rating, I fully expect to have more than a few burst-out-laughing moments, that's not the case with this one.

A Human Resources person who runs around spouting company policies? Yeah, surprise....we never saw anything like that before. Really, ummm, funny. The odd thing was, when there was something that was genuinely funny, the audience we were with seemed afraid to laugh. When one character curses out a child at the airport, instead of laughing (because it's supposed to be a COMEDY, folks!), they were horrified. Oh well.

There's a few chuckles but mostly low-key humor dominating this film and that's all I got out of it. You'd be better off waiting for it to come to cable.
