When the CEO (Jennifer Aniston) tries to close her hard-partying brother's branch, he (T.J. Miller) and his Chief Technical Officer (Jason Bateman) must rally their co-workers and host an epic office Christmas party in an effort to impress a potential client and close a sale that will save their jobs.
At the conclusion of filming in Atlanta, furniture and props from the set were donated to the Furniture Bank of Metro Atlanta, a charity that gives away free furniture to people moving into stable housing from homelessness and domestic violence. See more »
When Jason Bateman gets off the train at the beginning, people are waiting to & get onto it. The train's destination sign in the window of the train says "Not in Service". The CTA would not let passengers get onto an El that's "Not in Service" . See more »
Hey, God. I know I haven't asked for a lot in this life. Granted, I was born rich... and white... and a man... and straight. Well, except for that one time in Vegas, but that was Vegas.

Another raunchy comedy about partying hard and finding your inner cool
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.
