If you are over shopping for Christmas gifts, or if you’re like us and ordered them online, head to the movies this weekend. One flick will have you laughing out loud, and the other sparks up an already heated debate.

Jennifer Aniston (as Carol Vanstone): “You’re having a Christmas party tonight?”

Kate McKinnon (as Mary): “Well, it’s not a Christmas party. It’s a non-denominational holiday mixer. More inclusive.”

Jennifer Aniston (as Carol Vanstone): “Well, whatever you call it, it’s not happening.”

A holiday party goes wrong in “Office Christmas Party.”

An uptight CEO wants to shut down a branch of her family business right before Christmas. The employees throw a mega party, hoping they can get a new client from the bash and save their jobs.

Jennifer Aniston: “I’m basically a woman with a grudge who is now coming in. I’m basically the grinch who wants to steal Christmas away from all of these hardworking employees.”

Mark Strong (as Rodolfo Schmidt): “You’re a piece of work, Elizabeth.”

Jessica Chastain (as Elizabeth Sloane): “I was hired to win, and I use whatever resource I have.”

A political debate gets played out on the big screen in “Miss Sloane.”

Jessica Chastain is Elizabeth Sloane, a cutthroat lobbyist caught in the middle of Washington, D.C.’s gun control lobby.

Jessica Chastain: “I was fascinated by the subject matter. I didn’t really know how the political system works, and I wanted to understand what a lobbyist does.”
