Dirty Office Party: Directed by Josh Gordon, Will Speck. With Jason Bateman, Olivia Munn, T.J. Miller, Jennifer Aniston. When his uptight CEO sister threatens to shut down his branch, the branch manager throws an epic Christmas party in order to land a big client and save the day, but the party gets way out of hand…

“It is a few days to Christmas but you wouldnu0026#39;t really know it at the Chicago branch of Zenotec. Due to political correctness and the overzealousness of HR, there is very little in the way of celebrations. A quiet get-together is arranged but this is cancelled when the uptight, money-is-everything CEO (who happens to be the branch manageru0026#39;s sister) puts the kibosh on it. She also intends to retrench 40% of the staff at the branch. In a last ditch attempt to save the staff their jobs, the branch manager tries to land a major client. In order to show the client that theyu0026#39;re not cold and uncaring, he (without his sister knowing) throws a huge Christmas party, and invites the client. Things could get rather festive, as long as HR donu0026#39;t have anything to do with it…u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eFunny and fun. I had low expectations for this movie. It looked a lot like the silly sort of thing that Seth Rogen, Jonah Hill and/or James Franco would appear in. The fact that it starred Jason Bateman (and not Seth Rogen, Jonah Hill or James Franco) gave me some hope and from the beginning, the hope was vindicated.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eTurns out the humour is quite irreverent and non-PC, even anti-PC, (just the way I like it) and reasonably clever in that regard. Definitely not a movie for the easily offended, especially find-an-offense types (even more reason to like it).u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eIt does get a bit predictable and silly towards the end but the first act was excellent and if that sort of quality had been maintained this could have been a classic comedy.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eGood for a laugh, plus for pointing out how stupid companies (and individuals) have gotten in their aversion to Christmas celebrations.”
