I've never been to an office party that's spun wildly, hilariously out of control. Growing up, it was the sort of adult experience that was promised to me by the movies: that I would get a "real job," work at a desk, and that at Christmas everyone would drink, chase their secretaries, and later regret kissing a co-worker under the mistletoe. (Yes, I now realize that I thought being an adult would be an endless episode of Mad Men.)

Sadly, those of us who have worked in offices and attended countless workplace holiday parties all know that the out-of-control Christmas gathering is a rarity. Yet the idea lives large in myth and legend, and shall be celebrated in a new film currently under construction by writers Jon Lucas and Scott Moore -- who mined gold from the Vegas bachelor-party concept with The Hangover -- to be directed by Blades of Glory filmmakers Will Speck and Josh Gordon.
