Movie Review - Office Christmas Party

Movie Review 1 1/2 Stars

By Bob Garver

For years, I thought that Jason Bateman, Jennifer Aniston, and Courtney B. Vance all seemed like nice people. I know nobody's perfect, but I didn't have any problems with them. Now having seen them in "Office Christmas Party," I have to assume that they are in fact horrible people. They're not necessarily horrible because they did this movie, but they're horrible because of something they did before this movie. They did something horrible and now have to do this movie as part of a blackmail.

Colorado Parks and Wildlife officials are asking for the public's help in solving an exceptionally disturbing poaching case that occurred in the southwest corner of Kit Carson County.
