Comparison:

  • Theatrical Version
  • Unrated
Release: May 21, 2017 - Author: brainbug1602 - Translator: Tony Montana - external link: IMDB

 

Compared are the Theatrical Version (R-Rated) and the Unrated Version (both availableon the US Blu-ray by Paramount).

 

 

Clay Vanstone's branch starts struggling when his sister shows up before Christmas and announces that the company is going to be shut down and the employees are going to get fired. In cooperation with chief of the development department Josh Parker and programmer Tracey Hughes, Clay comes up with a plan to convince the influental client Walter Davis of their latest product. Part of said plan is a huge office party to which Walter is being invited as well. But things go wrong fast and one of the reasons is the employee Nate who has hired an escort to pretend to be his girlfriend. The escort does not waste any time resp. she is slinging dope and giving handjobs. But when psychologically unstable pimp Trina shows, it is up to Josh, Tracey and Carol to save the company.

 

 

An R-rated comedy about an exessive office party is not really innovative (Sisters already did that for instance). Office Christmas Party has a nice cast, such as Jennifer Aniston or Jason Bateman, but contentwise, it is not exactly the cream of the crop. The characters are stereotype (the badass CEO, the buddy-like boss, the nerd hacker etc.) and the plot is not really new either. A "Fuck" here, a sleazy gag there, add some nudity and you have the gist of it. The fact that it is Christmas does not really matter because this might as well take place at any other time of the year. In addition to that, Clay's abduction does not really fit in. A fistful of gags are quite well, like Clay's discussion with the pimp when they figure out their jobs have more in common than they thought or the party montage to Dio's "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen". Even though one can't shake the feeling to have it all before, one does not get bored at least.

 

 

Being rated R in movie theaters, the Blu-ray contains the Unrated Version with approx. 5 additional minutes. A few things are rather redundant though - probably cut for length reasons. Even the additional footage of the orgy during which the girl in a sheep costume plays a significant role does look like it was cut in order to get the R-rating because nude breasts, sex on desks or genitals printed in 3D are also in the Theatrical Version. That being said, there are outtakes of a scene that is only in the Unrated Version. In addition to that, there are also outtakes of a scene that is in neither of the versions. Basically, one should rather watch the Unrated Version. However, by watching the Theatrical Version, one does not really miss much.
