Office Christmas Party Passes

image001

In OFFICE CHRISTMAS PARTY, 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. The latest comedy from directors Josh Gordon and Will Speck (BLADES OF GLORY) co-stars Kate McKinnon, Olivia Munn, Jillian Bell, Rob Corddry, Vanessa Bayer, Randall Park, Sam Richardson, Jamie Chung, and Courtney B. Vance in the funniest movie of the holiday season.

Movie Scene Queen has your opportunity to attend a screening of Paramount’s OFFICE CHRISTMAS PARTY on Tuesday, December 6 at the AMC Waterfront 22 at 7:30pm.  Please comment with your favorite office party story.  I know you guys may think this is my full time gig, but I actually have a 9-5 and we have parties all the time.  We just had Thanksgiving dinner (it was really lunch) in the cafeteria and I never laughed so hard.  Some of my co-workers have really became friends and family.

Much Love,

Bad Santa 2 Passes

Bad Santa is coming to town AGAIN!

BAD SANTA 2 returns Academy Award®-winner BILLY BOB THORNTON to the screen as America’s favorite anti-hero, Willie Soke. Fueled by cheap whiskey, greed and hatred, Willie teams up once again with his angry little sidekick, Marcus (TONY COX), to knock off a Chicago charity on Christmas Eve. Along for the ride is ‘the kid’ – chubby and cheery Thurman Merman (BRETT KELLY), a 250-pound ray of sunshine who brings out Willie’s sliver of humanity.

Mommy issues arise when the pair are joined by Academy Award®, Golden Globe and Emmy-winner KATHY BATES, as Willie’s horror story of a mother, Sunny Soke. A super butch super bitch, Sunny raises the bar for the gang’s ambitions, while somehow lowering the standards of criminal behavior. Willie is further burdened by lusting after the curvaceous and prim Diane, played by Emmy Award-nominee CHRISTINA HENDRICKS, the charity director with a heart of gold and libido of steel.

Movie Scene Queen is holding a special Pre-Thanksgiving screening on Monday, November 21 at South Side Works Cinemas.  AMC Waterfront 22.  For tickets, please comment below with your favorite Bad Santa moment.

December 2013 Throwback Movie of the Month- Elf

image

In light of the recent release of the Will Ferrell’s Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, it’s only right to choose Elf as this month’s throwback movie.

An orphan accidentally climbs into Santa Claus’ bag and is carried away to the North Pole. Head elf, Papa Elf (Bob Newhart) takes the baby and names him Buddy. Papa Elf raises Buddy like he’s an elf. But it’s clear that Buddy is different than the rest of the elves.

When Buddy becomes of age, he branches off to the city to find his real family. Buddy has some troubles getting accumulated to the fast paced life of New York City. More importantly, he has a difficult time establishing a relationship with his biological father, Walter (James Caan), keeping a job, and finding his first love, Jovie (Zooey Deschanel). Eventually it’s up to Buddy the Elf and his mate, Jovie, to save Christmas.

Will Ferrell has such a lively, juvenile sense of humor. I know it was a piece of cake for him to be an elf. Buddy’s naive, candy popping attitude made the film that much more adorable. And he never took the large green Elf costume off.

This cute holiday movie included great music, classic Will Ferrell lines and all of the natural components of addictive season traditions from beginning to end.

As a Christmas classic, Elf joins Borrowed Hearts (1997), I’ll Be a Home for Christmas (1998), Home Alone (1990) and Home Alone 2 (1992), The Santa Clause film series with Tim Allen, Jingle All the Way (1996), and A Christmas Story (1983) as holiday necessities in my house. Elf is no doubt the Donny Hathaway-This-Christmas of movies.

5 Stars: Elf is family friendly, funny and full of child-like antics, Will Ferrell’s second best movie behind Stepbrothers (2009).
