Product Description

New Year's Eve (DVD)

Following the $200+ million success of the romantic ensemble comedy Valentine's Day, director Garry Marshall and screenwriter Katherine Fugate (Valentine's Day) finds "the second most romantic day of the year" in which to weave a series of interconnecting stories. This time set in New York on New Year's Eve, the romantic comedy celebrates love, hope, forgiveness, second chances and fresh starts, in the intertwining stories of couples and singles, told amidst the pulse and promise of the most dazzling night of the year. The stellar ensemble cast including Jessica Biel, Robert De Niro, Zac Efron, Katherine Heigl, Ashton Kutcher, Sarah Jessica Parker and more will ring in the New Year with this holiday anthology of love and laughter.

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

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.

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.

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.

Good Movie... 4 Different storylines that all end up with the same goal... New Years Eve. Love Jon Bon Jovi's contribution, but all the stories were really good, even Kutcher's was believeable, altho, no matter what film or TV show I see him play in, he's somehow always "predictable"... in other words, he doesn't have much range as an actor. This one is just mindless entertainment..nothing more than a feel good movie, but it's worth buying, especially when your spirit needs a "pick me up".

I love this movie. The characters are all so real. You completely believe in each one of them. You want things to turn out for them. You can feel what they are feeling. This is a movie I can watch over and over again. The cast is full of A listers such as Robert DeNiro, Halle Berry, Kathryn Heigl, Hector Elizondo, Ashton Kutcher, Jon Bon Jovi, Sarah Jessica Parker...the list goes on. Watch it. You will be glad you did. It is interesting to see how the stories intertwine with each other in unexpected ways. It is also interesting to see what each character struggles with.

In my much younger days in high school and college, I used to think it would be cool to go to Times Square one New Year's Eve to watch the ball drop. Now that I'm middle-aged...not so much. Standing in the cold (and maybe rain or snow) for the better part of a day doesn't seem nearly as appealing now--watching the proceedings on television is just fine.

The ball drop in New York City is known the world over, and the 2011 film "New Year's Eve" follows several individuals and couples in and near the Big Apple as they approach a new year. As you would expect in a movie like this, there is a great deal of symbolism--hope and second chances, birth and death, the old looking back and trying to come to terms with regrets from the past, and the young intently focused on the future.

The cast is first-rate, with Robert De Niro, Sarah Jessica Parker, Michelle Pfeiffer, and many more big names--Ryan Seacrest and Michael Bloomberg even make cameo appearances. Even though this is a chick flick that definitely would not normally appeal to someone in my demographic, the stories are passable enough if New Year's Eve has always been one of your favorite holidays and you have always loved the ball drop--and the cinematography of Times Square as midnight approaches is also very well-done.
