Editorial Reviews

New Year's Eve is all about parties, glitz, a midnight kiss, and maybe a few short-lived resolutions, right? Or could it be about something more? Valentine's Day writer Katherine Fugate and director Garry Marshall have once again joined forces to explore one of the most emotionally charged days of the year. Their uncanny ability to tell multiple stories at the same time, to intertwine those stories in the most unexpected ways, and to make sure viewers are emotionally invested in every single character makes the film an intriguing puzzle. Of course, a cast list that reads like an award-nomination roster doesn't hurt its success either. Among the host of "main characters" in the story is Claire Morgan (Hilary Swank), the woman in charge of the ball drop in Times Square. Naturally things don't go quite as planned and she's forced to do some serious on-the-spot improvising--oh, and it should be noted that she's deathly afraid of heights and there's somewhere else she really should be on New Year's Eve. Then there's the suddenly rebellious tween daughter Hailey (Abigail Breslin), who runs off to meet her boyfriend in Times Square for a New Year's Eve kiss, with her panicked mom (Sarah Jessica Parker) in hot pursuit. Mousy secretary Ingrid (Michelle Pfeiffer) decides to finally act on her long list of New Year's resolutions and enlists the unlikely help of courier Paul (Zac Efron). An exclusive New Year's Eve party throws together caterer Laura (Katherine Heigl), entertainer Jensen (Jon Bon Jovi), and sous chef Ava (Sofia Vergara). And then there's Sam (Josh Duhamel), a wealthy playboy who just can't seem to resist keeping an unlikely appointment to meet a mystery woman he met by chance last New Year's Eve and hasn't seen since (think An Affair to Remember and Sleepless in Seattle). Other notable talent includes Ashton Kutcher, Ryan Seacrest, Hector Elizondo, Halle Berry, Robert De Niro, Lea Michele, Cary Elwes, Seth Meyers, and a host of others. While this film could easily run like a parade of stars or a rehash of the successful Valentine's Day, it's a powerful film in its own right that leaves viewers pondering whether New Year's Eve might really be about second chances, hope, and embracing what will be. --Tami Horiuchi

Product Description

Director/producer Garry Marshall brings together an stellar ensemble cast to celebrate love, hope, forgiveness, second chances and fresh starts, in intertwining stories told amidst the pulse and promise of New York City on the most dazzling night of the year.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just as good as Valentine's Day December 11, 2011
Format:DVD
I Loved Valentine's Day and so when I heard about this one I was very excited to go see it and it has some of my favorite actresses and actors in it. Of course people will call this film predictable and cheesy just like all the romantic built movies, but honestly there is not one romantic type of movie that is not predictable. Of course you know what's going to happen at the end since it's called a romantic movie. I personally loved this movie, it had a lot of laughs and a couple parts where I got teary eyed. The movie has well put together characters and a very good plot. The ending just like Valentine's Day where it brought characters throughout the movie together some predictable and some were the complete opposite of predictable. I Love this movie and recommend it to anyone who likes romantic comedies or likes Valentine's Day. Who cares what the critics say they are wrong most of the time. Go to enjoy the movie, not to critique it.

Although the critics slammed "New Year's Eve" as one of the worst movies of the year, the audiences felt differently rather enjoying it. I kind of liked it. Nice fluff. It's an ensemble cast set up just like in "Valentine's Day" except this one is on "New Year's Eve". Some of the pairings include, Sarah Jessica Parker & Abigail Breslin who play Mother and Daughter offering one of the more bouncier & interesting pairings in the film. Josh Duhamel searches diligently for his soul mate he met & lost one year ago. Jessica Biel & Seth Meyers play husband and wife in one of the more unnecessary subplots in the film. Robert DeNiro & Halle Berry manage to bring deep emotion into the lackluster words printed on the script thus making it believable. Katherine Heigl & Sofia Vergara give us light comic relief in their bits.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great (unlike Valentine's Day) February 10, 2012
By Niki
Format:DVD
I was skeptical about seeing this film because of the numerous negative reviews it received. However, I have to say that this film was excellent. I personally do not like the comparisons to Valentine's Day because I thought that was a horrible movie. New Year's Eve was poignant and introspective. Although, some parts may be cheesy, and yes, it takes awhile for all the storylines to develop, I laughed out loud throughout the whole movie. So I recommend that you give a shot, if you were on the fence like me. I hope that you are pleasantly surprised.

1.0 out of 5 stars This movie is for saps. May 16, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video
I mean--I enjoy a good romance, I enjoy a good comedy; HECK, I even enjoy a good holiday movie. But above all, I enjoy a character with a purpose and a story with meaning--and let's not kid ourselves, it has to feel plausible.

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."

1.0 out of 5 stars Unbelievable make-believe March 15, 2012
Format:DVD
This is as calculated and commercial a film as can be imagined. Rredictable from the first instant to the last, it's as shallow and lifeless as they come. At some point, somebody involved must have had an impulse that was sincere and genuine, but there is no shred of authenticity left in this deathly film. New Year's Eve is a pastiche of numerous stories, most of them retreads, acted out by a large cast of celebrities. Only a handful of characters are given the opportunity to become at all "real," and many are just shallow and annoying anyway, so the viewer has little reason to care how the various trivial complications work out (though it's obvious that they will). Anyone looking for genuine human depth in the characters will not find it, though Halle Berry and Hilary Swank do breathe life into their parts. This film it its own kind of pornography. Heaven knows there's nothing remotely sexy about it; it's just that everyone is clearly faking it all the way through in a laughingly obvious way. The soundtrack is equally heavy-handed and obvious. Even viewers who simply want to eyeball the attractive cast members will be disappointed. Everybody's bundled up and hatted or pregnant or in some other way made unglamourous (except K. Heigl in an amazingly slinky dress, but she's such an unbearable, self-absorbed character that there's no appeal). The setting -- New York -- is also presented in a flat, dull, mostly ugly manner. I thought I would enjoy this film -- just looking for a light, charming couple of hours -- but it's such a cynical construction, so utterly heavy-handed and fake, that it made me really depressed. Yeah, the narrator gives us a dumb little lecture at the end about hope or something, but at that point I was sullen and pissed off at Garry Marshall's horrible direction. Read more ›
