In what I can only assume is a case of mass-Hollywood bribery gone rife Office Christmas Party is a real movie. No, I am being deadly-career serious. Not only is it a ‘real’ movie, but stars some rather well known actors like Jennifer Aniston, Jason Batemman, Sam Richardson, Olivia Munn, T.J Miller, Abbey Lee and Jillian Bell. I can only assume the rights for The Hangover 45 were taken and so a new excuse to act all kinds of stupid had to be explored. I can imagine that boardroom meeting going something like:

Script writer: ‘We need a story for…’

Intern on phone arriving late: ‘Oh my god I got so smashed last night at a Christmas party’

Script writer: ‘You’re hired and we’ll take it!’

Maybe I am suffering from too-early-pre-Christmas decoration syndrome (it’s real I tell you), perhaps not. Have a watch. And count how many ‘falling when not supposed to fall’ moments you can count…

Well that looks… wholly unoriginal. Still, it certainly fills a certain markets needs during the crazy season and to be honest I have been a fan of T.J.Miller since Silicon Valley so it may not turn out to be THAT bad. Also, Jennifer Aniston! The Hangover Office Christmas Party will be out on 9 December, whether you like it or not.

Read  The Predator review - Action-comedy sequel only gets it half right

Nick Reay

I have been an avid fan of movies ever since I discovered Santa Clause wasn't real, a day marked in my memory by my first viewing of It's a Wonderful Life, which wasn't so wonderful that day. Since then I've watched thousands of movies and even fooled my parents into putting me through uni to get a degree in the subject. I first started writing as a journalist for The South African Newspaper before moving onto communications for an NGO trying to save the planet. Unfortunately my recommendations to the CEO that we should all don rings imbued with the powers of earth, fire, wind, water and HEART went unheard. Now I pretend the end isn't nigh by hiding in movies.
