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…
Oh just fuck off
Love it Love it Love it.
but sooooooooooo great.
IT HAS EVERYONE IN IT.
AND IT'S TERRIBLE.
God it's terrible though..
You can't review this film without comparing it to Marshal's Valentines Day. They both basically use the same recipe. I liked Valentines Day much more because it felt very natural. New Year's Eve felt very forced and unnatural. The acting was not convincing. Film success is not guaranteed by casting great actors if they are just going to wing it. Bon Jovi gave a convincing performance, but he was basically playing himself!
What did I just put myself through?
I didn't realize that was Michelle Pfeiffer until the end of the movie, which makes her storyline and performance that much more bizarre.
Just love those films with tons of celebrities
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.
