When the CEO (Jennifer Aniston) tries to close her hard-partying brother's branch, he (T.J. Miller) and his Chief Technical Officer (Jason Bateman) must rally their co-workers and host an epic office Christmas party in an effort to impress a potential client and close a sale that will save their jobs.
NBA All-Star Jimmy Butler from the Chicago Bulls was cast in the movie due to his close relationship with actor Mark Wahlberg (who co-started with T.J. Miller in Transformers 4), who thought Butler would be a nice choice given that the setting of the film is Chicago. See more »

Hey, God. I know I haven't asked for a lot in this life. Granted, I was born rich... and white... and a man... and straight. Well, except for that one time in Vegas, but that was Vegas.

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 »
What a waste of a potentially funny talented cast. This year's big budget Christmas movie has about 10% of it that is funny - the rest is painful crude and unfunny. The premise has some potential but things run out of steam quickly.
The cast performs as well as they can. Jennifer Aniston is probably the reason why someone would choose to watch this movie. She is good at playing the bitchy hard as nails CEO. Olivia Munn has the main female lead role here and she is quite attractive. The other Asian American cast members are wasted. Jamie Chung serves mainly as eye candy and Randall Kim has a painful goofy role. Jason Bateman is okay TJ Miller is the brother and looks suitably stoned.
Save yourself - this one is one for the bargain DVD bin.
