If I didn’t know any better, I’d swear Garry Marshall was trying to break the unofficial record he set in “Valentine’s Day” by jamming even more A and B-list actors into his new romantic comedy New Year’s Eve. The ultimate result is they are all a part of your basic multi-threaded movie that intertwines the lives of, in this case, a very large number of people during our favorite “I’m going to be a better person right after I recover from tomorrow’s hangover” holiday. Mixed with the drunken festivities, I sense a lot of those revelations cheesy enough to choke a billy goat coming through too. See it now and make a determination for yourself.
New Year’s Eve stars Robert De Niro, Sarah Jessica Parker, Ashton Kutcher, Michelle Pfeiffer, Hilary Swank, Halle Berry, Lea Michele, Josh Duhamel, Jessica Biel, Katherine Heigl, Zac Efron, Abigail Breslin, Sienna Miller, Sofia Vergara, Chris ‘Ludacris’ Bridges, Jon Bon Jovi and Seth Meyes.
