A Truly One-Star Film
16 March 2017 | by See all my reviews

Let me start by saying, this is the first one star review I have provided on this site. But here we have a truly deserving first recipient in what is a cynical, tedious, lazy cash-grab (yes, apparently it made money...) of a film which has absolutely nothing to say.

And some (including I) might say that films do not always need necessarily to have a deeper underlying meaning, message or theme; sometimes a completely brainless, crude and/or silly movie is needed after all. But here we see the culmination of years' worth of horrific ensemble pieces targeted around key marketing periods (Valentines Day, New Years Eve etc.) which are widely dismissed as simply the dross that they are, becoming the norm. Worse so however, now we are at the apex of awfulness due to our indifference towards such self-egrandising back-slappery from increasingly C-list (an irrelevant but funny aside is that autocorrect somewhat aptly converts "C-List" to "Colostomy") actors and actresses who very visibly flaunt the fact that they are there simply for the money. In this film it is practically shovelled down our throats as an audience; with one character visiting several ATMs after seeing a situation get increasingly out of hand (very meta under these circumstances) and another who insists on strapping all of his - substantial - available wealth to his body. The real shame with Office Christmas Party though is just how detrimental it is to the reputation's of some incredibly talented actors who are inexplicably embarrassed here: Courtney B. Vance, Kate McKinnon and Jason Bateman being the real glaring aberrations, who we can only hope now return to projects which provide more spiritual and artistic nourishment. My only reservation with a one star review here was that it may incite "hate watching" (where a film is so bad you just have to see it) but unfortunately this is such a poor, tepid affair that even that would be a massive disappointment.
