Consensus: Its cast of gifted comics is good for a handful of laughs, but Office Christmas Party's overstuffed plot ultimately proves roughly as disappointing as its clichéd gags and forced sentimentality.

Even a third act demolition derby tribute to The Blues Brothers can't revitalize this stiff.

The supporting characters are the people who are funny. They're the people we care about. And every time the movie cuts from their mad antics ... the whole film starts to deflate a little, like a Mylar balloon from the discount party store.

Maybe it's because of all the depressing news... or ... the holidays and we are in dire need to see something lighthearted and, frankly, stupid right now, but this is temporarily satisfying. I guess that's all we can ask for this moment.

The rager's excesses are wholly predictable: cocaine, a lot of white people jumping up and down to DJ Kool, gay-panicky visuals with eggnog.

A joyless, laughless - that's right, not even one laugh - affair that proves how indulgent and (worse) boring ensemble comedies such as this become when the ensemble has next to no natural chemistry and even less of a script to riff off of.

There are large impressive stunts, pratfalls and chaos, but seldom does Office Christmas Party ever actually shock or delight in the way that it thinks it does.

Yet another reminder that allowing your cast to madly improvise instead of actually providing a coherent script with a scintilla of logic often leads to a decline in sustained laughter.

Like most office Christmas parties, you should skip it.

Daily Telegraph (Australia)

The celebration that goes too far is a movie comedy staple, but there's something a bit disturbing about Office Christmas Party's vision of corporate America self-immolating at the end of one terrible year.

Pretty funny film that never really tries nothing new but is full of cheap laughs and some crude humour that's not for everybody, Yes it's predictable… More

A mindless comedy that offers the same as any Christmas comedy movie. it's fun just leave it at that!

The film offers nothing different from everything else you have already seen. T.J. Miller and Jason Bateman play the roles of Seth Rogen and James Franco. Rob… More
