When the CEO (Jennifer Aniston) tries to close her hard-partying brother's branch, he (T.J. Miller) and his Chief Technical Officer (Jason Bateman) must rally their co-workers and host an epic office Christmas party in an effort to impress a potential client and close a sale that will save their jobs.
This will be the first live-action DreamWorks Pictures release to be distributed by Paramount Pictures since 2012's "A Thousand Words." See more »
When they are launching the protocol to get the Anywair internet up, the goggles that Joel (aka DJ Calvis) wears go back and forth from covering his eyes to being on his forehead several times between shots. See more »
All right, if by some miracle you can close Walter Davis and his 14 million dollar account, your jobs are safe.
Done! And you're going to look so stupid!
[Begins walking out of the door]
Then we'll finally have something in common!
[the door shuts]
Goddammit, she's so mean!

After the Paramount Pictures logo ends it goes directly to the Dreamworks Pictures logo, and when the Reliance Entertainment almost ends, a star is added on top of the "A" and four black dots is added on the bottom of the "A" and when the logo is fading out the "A" on the logo is changed to a Christmas tree on a pie in the office. During these logos a mix of ''Merry Christmas and happy new year'' and "Deck The Halls" is played. See more »

I'd never have rented this based on the blurb, and for the past few weeks I ignored it on Netflix. But tonight I gave it the 10-minute test. Ended up glued to the tube. This is the sleeper of the season for Netflix holiday comedy offerings, that might be especially made for SNL fans. If you like movies like 'Rare Imports' and 'Get Santa', take this American offering for a test drive.
A slow start, a bit clunky on the early ensemble work, but brother when it hits its stride it is meta-hysterical. During the run-up to the bridge, with the glorious Christmas anthem in full orchestral splendor, I damned near stopped breathing. The outtakes after the credits are a mni-van full of wit and sass.
***RATED R AND EARNS IT!!! (there is some really gross stuff in this but they don't dwell on any of it; I've heard the amazing comedic cast improv'd a lot).
Not suitable for Family watching.
