OFFICE CHRISTMAS PARTY

ROG'S VIEWPOINT - A fun-loving boss (T.J. Miller), his Chief Technical Officer (Jason Bateman) and their co-workers must throw a monumental holiday office party to impress a client and save the company branch from being shut down by his CEO sister (Jennifer Aniston). This boisterous comedy may not be art, but
there are much worse ways to spend a couple of hours - 105 minutes to be exact. High-brow and low-brow humor sprinkled with slapstick provide R rated laughs for everyone but the kids. T.J. Miller is king of this party, but he gets plenty of help from Bateman, Aniston and the stellar supporting cast. Olivia Munn, Kate McKinnon, Vanessa Bayer, Rob Corddry, Randall Park and Courtney B. Vance are among the revelers. Forget the standard issue plot surrounding the festivities and enjoy the celebration courtesy of directors Josh Gordon and Will Speck. "Office Christmas Party" is a stocking stuffer to revel in. ***
