Stupid fun in the tradition of some of the great whacked-out comedies of the 1980s and 1990s. Party on, dudes!

I think the actors did a fine job, but writing was dismal and direction was questionable. Each actor played their part convincingly. That Jennifer Aniston, who is normally cast in fun, loving roles, was able to pull off such a mean-spirited, vindictive character so well, shows what a terrific actress she is. Unfortunately, she had to work with a terribly flawed, flat, mundane script and I think the director didn't do enough to counter it. The same thing hurt Jason Bateman's character, as well, along with most of the other characters. The movie struggled along for the first 3/4 of the movie, but got funnier toward the end. I did get some good laughs at the end, but not enough to give this movie 4 stars. And, once again, bad direction and writing had Aniston's character turn from sadist to saint far too quickly and quite unconvincingly. Kate McKinnon's character, the Human Resources director, was funny and I think she carried a lot of the weight of the bad writing and directing on her shoulders.

Some funny moments and bits, but it could have been so much more. I guess getting a bunch of b-list comedians together is probably the reason it isn't better. Jennifer Aniston is someone I never got why people liked. She's no Lisa Kudrow. And with age she just a pain to watch. Jason Bateman; why is he still working? TJ Miller; his best performance was in Cloverfield and he was off-screen most of the time. Some SNL hacks, and Randall Park (the only interesting comedian in the film). I did laugh at a few moments and it had a decent flow, but it just needed a better script and better actors.

Six writers and two directors and I think I laughed once.

Don't bother with this one. Hmm over 200 holds as of June 6? Maybe let that hold expire. Very weak movie, not many funny points. Maybe lower ratings will lower your expectations and you enjoy it more, or maybe spend your time with something else, almost anything else... Enjoy!

Funny parts are all in the trailer. Watch that, laugh once, and be done with it.

Just so-so. With Jason Bateman & Olivia Munn we expected better! Mindless party humor, much of it on the raunchy side. BUT we did chuckle at a few parts. We should probably be ashamed to admit it, but if you laugh, you laugh. You can't always intellectualize humor! If you want smart humor, this is not your movie; if you want wild party humor this is for you.

a cash grab at christmas..probably took 3 weeks of everyones time to make it. Jason is a very funny character actor when in his element but this was just plain stupid. ANY of the funny bits were seen on the trailer and although there are some funny/adult language films that hit the mark ( We're the Millers, etc) this idea of just making things gross and thinking people will find it humorous , hopefully, stops soon when they lose money on these movies.
