Movie review: ‘Office Christmas Party’ a comedy made by smutty elves

Content-wise, there isn’t a whole lot of difference between the crude sexual humor and pervasive vulgarity of the recent “Bad Santa 2” and this week’s “Office Christmas Party.” Both Christmas-themed comedies traffic in the groin-fixated humor, debauchery, slapstick violence, substance abuse and corrosive foul language that have come to characterize much of the modern R-rated comedy world.

Movie review: Jessica Chastain enlivens political thriller ‘Miss Sloane’

There’s never a hair out of place in “Miss Sloane,” a painstakingly slick political thriller from director John Madden about a brilliant lone-wolf lobbyist consumed with the win. It’s a wannabe Aaron Sorkin-meets-Shonda Rhimes glimpse into the hollow and cynical world of inside the Beltway dealings from first-time screenwriter Jonathan Perera that’s never quite snappy, insightful or salacious enough to be as fun or damning as it should be.
