Jason Bateman and Jennifer Aniston are in another comedy together, and so you can pretty much guess what that means - he’ll sleepwalk through being the everyman emotional core of the pic, and she’ll be some version of mainstream-friendly outrageous. They’re but two of the core cast of Office Christmas Party, which at times resembles a Frankenstein’s hybrid between their prior generic comedy fare like Horrible Bosses and sprawling ensemble-driven multi-narratives in the vein of Love Actually or New Year’s Eve.

Turn them loose, and this cast has nearly endless potential to be outrageous, and yet, the script...keeps interrupting the festivities with unnecessary details about whether the company will even be around tomorrow.

The perfect seasonal gift. Or would be, if only Office Christmas Party delivered its gags with a little more frequency.

Everyone’s favourite Ghostbuster does the film a heap of small mercies...

Sometimes the movie, directed by Josh Gordon and Will Speck, is too obviously just a framework for its stars to deploy goofy schtick, but the overall package is naughty, inappropriate fun.

It's a film destined for iTunes rental status, but kept from flatlining with a pretty dependable string of stupid yet funny one-liners...

If you brave it sober, many of the jokes fall flat, the party scenes become grating and the characters become borderline insufferable.

It’s a frenetic grab bag of strained shtick, however expertly delivered by ace comic performers.

In a year of Bad Moms, Bad Santas and Bad Neighbours, this is, essentially, Bad Employees: another irresponsible-adults comedy, another great cast, and another erratic script. Catch it for McKinnon.
