Bringing together an Ocean’s Eleven-esque cast of comedic talent, Jennifer Aniston, Jason Bateman, T.J. Miller, Kate McKinnon and Olivia Munn will join forces to rocket audiences fully into the holiday season with Office Christmas Party.
Easily the greatest ‘Friend,’ Jennifer Aniston again plays the heel of a raunchy, this time as a CEO who calls off the annual company Christmas Party and threatens to close a branch of the business run by her brother (T.J. Miller) unless they can close a huge deal before the holiday break.
So what are the employees supposed to do? Bang the phones? No. Start taking big deal prospects out to lunch? No. Offer deep discounts on annual spend if they sign before the new year? No. They do the next best thing – get their target client, played by THE MAN Courtney B. Vance, to attend their Christmas Party which has been elevated to Vegas on Steroids levels.
Let’s face it – 2016 has been maybe the worst year of the millennium. Bad news at every turn. I think we can all use a blowout Christmas Party on the company dime. With any luck, your own Holiday party puts the one on the screen to shame, but in case it doesn’t, live vicariously through a collection of the funniest actors working today.
WHAT’S IT ABOUT (via Wikipedia):
When Zenotek CEO Carol Vanstone (Jennifer Aniston) tries to close the branch of her hard-partying brother Clay (T. J. Miller), he and his Chief Technical Officer 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.
