Clay and Carol are siblings with only their parents in common. Carol has been the responsible one who got her father’s company but not his attention. Clay is the fun one who got his father’s attention but only heads a branch of the company. Carol has come to a decision. If Clay doesn’t turn a 12% profit before the end of the quarter, which is 2 days away, she will layoff 80 workers. Also, Carol cuts the bonuses and the Christmas party for the budget. Clay loves his employees and will to do anything to help them keep their jobs. He believes he can land the $14 million account with Walter Davis. Knowing Walter has met with Dell and Oracle, Carol believes that Clay will not have chance, but agrees. If Clay gets the deal, his employees can stay and have their bonuses.  But she won’t budge on the party.  Walter likes their initiative, but does not like their company culture.  He believes that companies have put the board ahead of the workers and believes Clay’s company is the same. Clay decided to show Walter different by inviting him to the canceled party. Now Clay has to put together the biggest bash possible to win over Walter, his employees, and his sister.

This movie is a lot like Horrible Bosses (FTC Affiliate Disclaimer). The party is just a means to an end, not the actual end. This story leads to a car chase, gun wielding pimps, office romances, and cutting edge technology … all because of one party. It has a homages to Game of Thrones, Fast and Furious, and Project X (FTC Affiliate Disclaimer).  There are a lot of good comics with good gags and even a few life lessons, but it’s just not great.  There is so much going on that you may forget the point of the story.  If you are a fan of these movies, see it matinee and don’t stay past the end crawl.

I give it 2.5 out of 5 stars
