Despite the critics attacks on the film they do manage to praise one tiny element within each of their scathing reviews. They loved the Michelle Pfieffer - Zac Efron sequences, more or less calling it the film's saving grace. I agree. I could've watched the entire movie with just them and be fine. If only the entire movie could've surfaced around their characters. They were the only actors that actually developed and fleshed out the roles they were playing as much as they could. It ended up being the surprising charm behind the film and thus allowing me to give it one more star necessary just for them.
Most of us have guilty pleasures and we want to escape the stresses, depressions and feelings of isolation in our lives and simply escape into a fantasy. "New Year's Eve" can accomplish that.
The film is a completely unrealistic and contrived world, yet it's bright, fun and full of love.Read more ›
This movie had very little depth, and most times, seemed so superficial. Allow me to elaborate: Two couples competing to have the first baby in the new year; a teenager who disobeys her mother to run about Times Square with her crush, a man who has been waiting AN ENTIRE YEAR to re-meet some lady with whom he shared a moment on NYE 2011, a bitter guy who hates NYE for really no good reason; and so on and so forth. Seriously, is this how deep our lives get? Something about this is just too bothersome to me. Maybe it was the lack of diversity insofar as to whom this movie was targeted--a very middle class to upper middle class, American audience. Maybe it was because the Ball dropping in Times Square supposedly set the tone for the hopes and dreams of not only everyone in the country but in the world. It's commercial. It's materialistic. It's disingenuously saccharine. But above all, it's 1-dimensional. Don't get me wrong, there were some good moments for me--usually the scenes involving Hilary Swank. But overall, this movie needs to retire with the New Year.
But as the title suggests, some people like this sappy, gimmicky stuff. And that's ok. I've given "Valentine's Day" a chance. I gave this a chance. No more. I'll stick to "Love Actually."
This is a razzle dazzle movie with some good moments, improbable though they mostly are, and a nice mindless evening to enjoy popcorn. Enter with low expectations and take it for what it is - entertainment. Grady Harp, May12
