Jason Bateman and TJ Miller run the Chicago branch of a tech firm that isn’t exactly the tightest ship in the fleet. When TJ’s sister (Jennifer Aniston) drops in to cut over half the staff, cancel all bonuses, and cancel the yearly Christmas party, they decide the only way to save their branch is to impress Courtney B Vance, who has been shopping around a very expensive contract. And guess what they decide the best way to do that is? Boom! Giant-ass Xmas party.
Sure, this movie trades only in the most tertiary fashion with logic but with such a big cast (Olivia Munn, Kate McKinnon, Jillian Bell, Rob Corddry, Randal Park, Jamie Chung, Vanessa Bayer, Matt Walsh, etc, etc) there’s guaranteed to be some fun, right? Well, sorta. Listen to Chris, Kyle, Frank, and Beau give you the sordid details.
