Review: 'Office Christmas Party' Is Funny But Not Fresh

Office Christmas Party as a movie is 1 on the binary scale. The story revolves around the tech company Zenotech’s Chicago branch, run by fun loving manager Clay Vastone (TJ Miller). There is trouble in paradise when Clay’s sister and Zenotech’s ruthless CEO/Scrooge architype, Carol (Jennifer Aniston), threatens to cancel Christmas bonuses and shut the branch down. The last hope for the office is to close a momentous business deal with a potential client Walter Davis (Courtney B. Vance). Mr. Davis is reluctant to do business with Zenotech, which has an infamous reputation due to Carol’s cut throat policies. Clay aims to convince him otherwise. To save the branch and close the deal, Clay and his employees must throw the wildest Christmas party of an epoch.
