New Year's Eve

Critics Consensus

Shallow, sappy, and dull, New Year's Eve assembles a star-studded cast for no discernible purpose.

News & Interviews for New Year's Eve

Critic Reviews for New Year's Eve

All Critics (139) | Top Critics (35)

  • New Year's Eve is a perfect example of why the adjective "Hollywood" is so often used as a pejorative.

  • The only entertaining way to watch New Year's Eve is as a cruel experiment in which performers stranded with absolutely no script support are forced to subsist on pure presence, which quickly becomes a blood sport in which only a few survive.

    Linda Holmes

    Top Critic
  • Written on the level of a bad episode of The Love Boat, this is one of those concoctions that intertwines about 10 storylines and then concludes with a cherry on top.

    Tom Long

    Top Critic
  • The only thing that can inspire more cynicism than a holiday's coerced emotions may be a film that both exploits and celebrates said emotions.

    Dec 9, 2011 | Rating: 2/4
  • It's all perfectly pleasant and perfectly harmless and perfectly bland.

    Dec 9, 2011 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Should auld acquaintance be forgot? I don't know, but "New Year's Eve" sure should be.

    it was alright contrary to the ratings, a bit like, "Valentine's Day", which has stellar star cast, storyline revolves around an event as the name suggests where one keeps on connecting the dots as the story unfolds. watch it, if you like rom-com's and also it hasn't grown old or boring even in 2013!!!

    It's cool to see so many stars in one movie!

    Movies stars don't always make a movie good, and "New Year's Eve" is proof of that. This is a follow-up to "Valentine's Day"(not a sequel), same director and some of the cast, although their different characters. But it's the same premise, just a different holiday. If follows different people on New Years Eve, and how their stories intertwine in New York City. The movie boasts one of the most impressive casts ever. If you named 15 actors off the top of your head, at least half of them are probably in this movie. Ashton Kutcher, Zac Efron, Michelle Pheiffer, Kathriene Keighl, Jon Bon Jovi, Abigail Breslin, Sarah Jessica Parker, Josh Duhamel, Jessica Beil, Seth Meyers, Halle Berry, Robert De Niro, to name just a few! However, the stories are all cliche and pretty bland. They are striving for "Love Actually", but in the end it comes nowhere close to the excellence of that film. Main reason to watch is to count all the actors you know. The performances are good, but the story is weak and for a comedy it isn't very funny. Watch for sheer star power, just don't expect much substance behind their shine.

    I feel bad reviewing a movie I didn't fully watch. No, I don't. I walked out of this film. Could it be that bad? To be nice, yes. It is that bad. This film is a total formulaic bore and I am shocked it was green lit. No, no I'm not. Aspiring writers out there, never give up. If a bore like NEW YEAR'S EVE can be made into a movie, your movie can be made too!
