Another raunchy comedy about partying hard and finding your inner cool
25 December 2016 | by See all my reviews

When his uptight CEO sister threatens to shut down his branch, the manager throws an epic Christmas party in order to land a big client and save the day...

Yes, it's another raunchy American comedy about partying hard and finding your inner cool, starring Jason Bateman doing his regular Bateman (warm humble regular joe who just wants to play it straight), Jennifer Aniston doing her regular 2010's comedy Jennifer Aniston (ice queen who turns out to be pretty awesome after all), and bunch of whats-his/her-names you are sure you remember from other movies somewhere.

It's a very by-the-numbers comedy offering nothing that you have not seen too many times before. But the package's tight, so it works fine, especially on the big screen.

Two notes of interest: the two most memorable characters here are both women, a pimp and an Uber driver. I would love to see Fortune Feimster (the latter) starring in her own movie, comedy or otherwise.
