Happy New Year everyone! Of course I had to review the 2011 movie New Year’s Eve on New Year’s Eve. Unlike its spiritual predecessor Valentine’s Day, (read that review here) New Year’s Eve is way more pointless. It is still directed by Garry Marshall though. While Valentine’s Day made sense to be a romantic comedy featuring several stories, New Year’s Eve is not a romantic holiday. Drunk love maybe, but this movie is a real stretch. Any mild enjoyment I found in Valentine’s Day is completely lost here. Every paycheck hungry celebrity in the movie doesn’t try at all. Each story is more cheesy and forced than the last. Including: doing stuff you didn’t get to do before the year is up, planning a New Year’s party, New Year’s pregnancies, young New Year’s kissing, trying to fix the ball drop, meeting someone on New Year’s, and getting trapped in an elevator on New Year’s Eve. Yes, it’s just as dull as it sounds. So don’t waste your time with New Year’s Eve. All in all, I had a pretty great year. Starting this blog was a particularly life changing highlight. Thank you for taking the time to read!
