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 ›
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.
