The holidays are a time for presents, celebrating, giving thanks and doing your best not to get fired at the holiday party. While your holiday party may not have the same budget as the upcoming comedy Office Christmas Party, you may sympathize with some of the more regrettable moments. Although we would definitely not regret partying with Jillian Bell.
The new holiday flick stars Jennifer Aniston as a businesswoman who is giving her underachieving brother, played by TJ Miller, one more chance to save his office branch by landing the big client (Courtney B. Vance). Miller enlists the help of his coworkers, including Vanessa Byer, Olivia Munn, Jason Bateman and Kate McKinnon, to throw the biggest party of all time. But don’t worry, it’s nondenominational.
The film is continuing in the tradition of holiday comedies, like National Lampoons Christmas Vacation, The Night Before and A Very Harold and Kumar Christmas. The new comedy Office Christmas Party sets itself apart by focusing on spending one night of the holiday season not with family, but instead with coworkers, who usually see you on your best behavior. Throw some alcohol into a usually very sober work environment (we assume) and you’ve got yourself a comedy that is much more naughty than nice.
Office Christmas Party boasts plenty more all-star cast members thanks to appearances by Fortune Feimster, Jamie Chung, Rob Corddry, Randall Park, and Jillian Bell—and even reunites Horrible Bosses co-stars Aniston and Bateman.
You can see it in theatres on December 9—just in time for holiday parties.
