5.0 out of 5 stars Garry Did it Again! Story and Characters First!, December 19, 2011
This review is from: New Year's Eve [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
MOVIE NOTE #15: NEW YEAR'S EVE
What a really wonderful movie. It has real humor, great complex characters and humongous heart. Don't miss this. Another great script from Katherine Fugate in the same vain as last year's "Valentine's Day" (which she also wrote)- this film has the same concept of 20 characters with 5 story lines that all end up in the same place and crossing each other's paths! Directed by Garry Marshall himself ("Pretty Women", "Valentine's Day", "The Princess Diaries", "Beaches") - the film takes the lives of a depressed and self-deprecating worker (Michelle Pfieffer of `The Fabulous Baker Boys') who is challenged and amazed by a young currier carrier (Zac Efron of `High School Musical') - and - a negatively scarred young comic book illustrator (Ashton Kutcher of `Two and a half Men') and a confident yet fearful background singer (Lea Michele of `Glee') forced to learn about each other in the confines of one space for hours - and - a mother (Sarah Jessica Parker of `Sex In The City') and her daughter (Abigail Breslin of `Kitt Kittridge') learning that although they have each other...they need to expand their own hearts to the opposite sex - and - a first-class Chef (Katherine Heigl of `Roswell', `The Ugly Truth') in a cross romance with a career driven rock star (Jon Bon Jovi of `Ali McBeal')...

And - a lonely man (Robert De Niro of `Raging Bull') who's dying is befriended by a sympathetic nurse (Halle Barry of `X-Men', `Monsters Ball') with a major hole in her life - and - two pregnant mothers (Jessica Biel of `The A Team', `7h Heaven' and Sarah Paulson of `Serenity')with their husbands (Seth Meyers of `SNL', Valentine's Day' and Til Schwieger of `The Three Musketeers', Inglorious Bastards') competing for the births of their babies to happen before midnight New Year's Eve - and - a project coordinator of the New York New Year's Eve celebration at times square wh has a morale and social delema working through her job and her heart played by Hilary Swank (`Million Dollar Baby', `Boys Don't Cry') with the confused life of Josh Duhamel (`Transformers')...

And - sprinkle in the memorable performances of actors like Cary Elwes , Hector Alizondo, James Belushi Sophia Vergara, John Lithgow, Russel Peters, Larry Miller, Jack McGee, Yeardly Smith, Ludacris and Penny Marshall (Garry's younger sister!) - you a very entertaining movie. You will literally, laugh and cry - sometimes at the same time too! Great family film with a ot of real-life typr situations that make all the characters believable. The best part - you think you know who is going to do what - and then - wrong! Great writer because of a strong story lines and believable characters. 12-2011
