An unfunny comedy which has the feeling of a badly made sitcon, which if it were a weekly series it'll get cancelled. Whatever worked for "Valentine's Day," didn't work for this movie. The film put 19 stars into the movie with nothing to do. Oscar winners Halle Berry, Hilary Swank and Robert DeNiro were stuck playing second rate characters. Sarah Jessic Parker and Katherine Heigal are in the movie; two of my least favorite performers. The only good performer worthy of mention is Abigail Breslin She's more mature than the rest of the cast. Here are the things that I don't like about the movie 1) two people trapped in a elevator, 2) A dying man wants to go out into the cold to help ring in the new year, 3) two moms wanted to have the first baby of the year for money. And the list goes on and on. There's nothing differrent coming from Ashton Kusher, Lea Michele and sofia Vergara. Their characters are no different from what they played on television. In the 118 minute running time each star gets an avenge at least a 6 minute screen time. I don't know, some of them overlap their 6 minutes of screen time. Director Gary Mashall really made a mess out of this movie. I spent my last New Year's Eve watching the Marx Brothers on Turner Classic Movies. I'm better off than the people in this movie.
This was a feel good movie. Just sit back and relax. Not every movie as to have guns and violence. Worth the night out.
