Office Christmas Party (2016)

CULT – 0

 

VERDICT – 3/5

 
PROS –
1) Good fun movie with a decent screenplay.
2) “Anywair” sounds very interesting.
3) Jillian Bell as Trina – this terribly under-rated actress needs a full-length movie in the lead role. I’d even love to watch a spin-off movie featuring Trina as the central character.
4) Fortune Feimster as Lonny, the Uber Driver.

 

 

CONS –
N/A

VERDICT – 2/5

 
PROS –
1) A story with great potential if it was made with a better cast. This movie belongs to Judd Apatow and his “Frat Pack”.

CONS –
1) A half-hearted effort from Jonathan Levine
