...a perfectly watchable (and consistently hackneyed) feel-good ensemble drama.

No message, no car chases and explosions, no 3D - just relaxing entertainment

New Year's Eve is like Woody Allen lite for the masses ( ... ) by never threatening to copy the smut of 50/50 or Bridesmaids, it's a memory-stirring, warm-hearted breath of fresh air. Even at 117 minutes.

...while generally uninvolving, it's a nice, moral, family-oriented film, better than sitting through many of the others that are out there right now.

To say "New Year's Eve" is cheesy is an understatement. Love struck people running around and trying to have a good time. But that is also what makes the film fun.

[Rating Updated 12/31/15] It may be cornball in spots and pedestrian in others, but it is pure cinematic comfort food that works wonders for the last day of the year. It's fun in spite of its (many) problems.

New Year's Eve is still laugh-out-loud funny in places and tries to be heartwarming.

A movie I often found myself laughing at in ridicule, and one that also gave me a lump in the throat. So I guess you could say I had a good time.

A New Year's toast as sentimental as singing Auld Lang Syne!

It's like channel surfing when there's nothing on but crap.

Offering up genuinely unlikable characters and terrible dialogue, this comedy qualifies as one of the year's worst.

The bland lead the bland through a sea of New Year's revelers...

Your appreciation for the film may depend on your tolerance for sugar.

Among the year's worst films. The tragedy is funny, the comedy is tragic, and about its only saving grace is that it makes 2010's Valentines Day look almost passable.

The cinematic equivalent of a piece of New York style cheesecake and about as artistically satisfying.

a sea of quickly put together, cheesy romcom vignettes that fail to put across any kind of meaningful message

New Year's Eve is pretty much laugh-free, trading on tired visual gags and some unbelievably cynical 'cutesy' scenes (baby montage anyone?) for most of its humour.
