I've always been interested in what other people are seeing and watching, and naturally, I love looking at Weekend Box…
New Year's Eve
The one night anything is possible.
The lives of several couples and singles in New York intertwine over the course of New Year's Eve.
What’s that noise? It’s the deafening sound of twenty popular actors* all hitting rock bottom at the same time. I always thought New Year’s Eve was supposed to be fun but it seems I was wrong.
*And Sarah Jessica Parker.

What in the actual fuck did I just watch?
If you thought Lost had a shitload of storylines, watch this, it boggles the mind! Honestly, who the fuck thought it was a good idea to write a mosaic about just about every fucking body in New York City? What are we trying to do here? Chronicle the lives of all the people in NY that are probably too stupid to shit? Who you say? Katherine Fugate? Right, wasn't that the untalented 'writer' who already aborted our souls with the atrocious Valentine's day? She still has a job after that? Wonderful....
All characters here were obviously born in a bowl…
Happy New Year's Letterboxders! Here's to a great 2014 of movie watching!
Ps. There's no way in hell I've actually watched this movie!
Piss on this goddawful pile of dung.
I'm not sure how or why I ended up watching this on Memorial Day...
But I really wish I hadn't.
Oh man. I went into this with an open mind. I liked the idea of it. I love movies with huge ensemble casts and several stories that weave around one another. I love movies that are set in New York. I either like or don't mind everyone in the cast. The idea of all these actors involved in loosely connected stories all taking place on New Year's Eve in the Big Apple is really appealing to me.
But GOOD GOD is this movie terrible. Not only are all the stories (every single one!) utterly devoid of interest and even the smallest amount of depth or human truth, they are actively frustrating and annoying. (The worst of all goes to the…
You know what I see when I watch New Year's Eve? A triumph of scheduling. They managed to get a load of name actors for a couple of days to shoot some small roles as a favour, and they probably didn't cast a second glance after. Certainly that's the only real positive of the rest of the film, which features eight different stories that are varying degrees of silly or just plain dumb, about a number of characters whose sole personality is who exactly is playing them and the audience's history with them. In that regard, its like reading a gossip magazine, and with just as much substance and authenticity. There's constantly speeches about the power of love and New Years, but the manufactured nature of the whole project means it rings completely false, and by about the fifth time someone does an impassioned monologue its downright nauseating.
Full video review here.
Līdz nejēgai pārcukurota un nereāla. Galvenais-ne īpaši smieklīga.
Was waiting for a Gilbert Gottfried cameo but it never happened.
Far and away one of the worst things I've ever endured.
Very enjoyable ensemble inersecting movie.
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
I've seen a couple of the star-studded ensemble romantic comedies and this was the one I liked the least. Putting those films aside, this just wasn't a good film. It was a bit too long and could have done with one less story. There was one scene that was more cheesy than a cheese factory.
The only thing memorable was watching Zac Efron and Michelle Pfeiffer dancing at the end (which can be seen as both a good and a bad thing).
Hihetetlen szereposztás van. Jó film.
Yes, it's bad, pointless and forgettable. Of course it is. But it wasn't that bad, I thought it would be. If that's a compliment, then - you're welcome, "New Year's eve". Happy New Year!!! :)
Garry Marshall is a poor man's Robert Altman.
- Χμ, παίζουν τόσοι γνωστοί.
- Μα γιατί; Δεν έχει καν σενάριο.
- Ούτε ρυθμό έχει. Είναι τελείως επίπεδο.
- Μάλλον βρήκαν όσους δεν έκαναν κάτι εκείνη την περίοδο και τους έπεισαν να παίξουν.
- Και η Pfeiffer παίζει χάλια.
- Γιατί το βλέπουμε;
- Για να δούμε τι γίνεται στο τέλος.
- Ε, σιγά μη γίνει τίποτα στενάχωρο.
- Έχει κι 8 nominations κι 1 βραβείο.
- Μα πώς;
- Α, δες την κριτική του Rolling Stone "Bad beyond belief".

I am convinced the poor guy's sanity hangs by a thread at times. Kermode is pretty much the reason I…
