“When his uptight CEO sister threatens to shut down his branch, the branch manager throws an epic Christmas party in order to land a big client and save the day, but the party gets way out of hand…”
Project X meets any Christmas movie ever, and you get Office Christmas Party. This movie checks all the boxes yes, but not always satisfyingly so. There is a solid and funny cast here, at least individually, but they don’t always add up to something greater than individual talent. Like, theres potential here, but the movie gets there sometimes, and not other times. It does get there enough times to keep you chuckling throughout the film yes, but it also never gets to the real peaks it could to get those real belly laughs. And thats the real let down of this movie, you can keep seeing the potential, and you get close to it a few times, just close enough to keep you going. All in all there really isn’t that much to say about this movie. Its a pretty simple premise, and it has solid acting for that premise, and while its not the most predictable movie of all time, you can guess where its going. If you like these actors, or you want something to scratch that Christmas itch, then you can check this movie out, but keep your expectations low.
Review Score : 6 out of 10
