Office Christmas Party is a film that’s never really as funny as it should be. The cast is made up of a who’s who of talented comedians who can be really funny all on their own. Somehow, the film never really meshes together the way it should have. It’s funny in spots but never consistently enough to make it worth revisiting again. The overall plot borrows heavily from Animal House and Project X but it never really finds its own footing. When all the crazy antics are done it’s a surprisingly tame R rated comedy that’ll be easily forgotten by the time you left the theater.
