Brought to you by the director who gave us Valentines Day (the movie, not the actual day). Starring practically everyone that's ever been in a movie, ever. Set on new years eve (obviously) the film follows some of the lives, loves, hates and hurdles that we may all be facing this new years eve outselves. And with so many stories and characters all thrown into the mix there is no way you won't enjoy at least a little bit of it.
The film is a multi-story narrative about a number of people celebrating New Years Eve in New York, we see the lives of a singer, caterer, errand boy, hipster and a host of other characters played by a numerous amount of celebrities.
This is a typical chick flick but the comedy aspect in this romcom will keep the men entertained, if all that eye candy in shapes of Sofia Vergara, Jessica Biel and Katherine Heigl doesn't. Don't worry ladies, there's plenty of guy candy thrown in their too in the fine forms of Zac Efron, Ashton Kutcher, Josh Duhamel and Common.
Now this is the festive season so do expect some cheese on your board with this film, a particular lift experience being the Swiss. There are also some heart warming moments and a some sad bits and even a little twist in the end for those (like me) who think they can suss out a films plot and guess the end.
Out of all the story lines the biggest let down is the one containing Sarah Jessica Parker and her renegade teen, SJP is far too relaxed about her daughter's happenings and must there always be a slo-mo shot of her in a "gorgeous" dress?? I mean come on! Every film?
It's not the greatest film but who would expect as much from a movie with so many famous faces? There are even celebs I didn't expect to see which was a pleasant surprise, the slight 80s reference when Matthew Broderick makes a small appearance as Mr BUELLERton was cool and there is even a few musical numbers which comes as no surprise as that chick from Glee and Jon Bon Jovi are in it.
If you want an all star cast, glitz, glamour and beautiful people set in a beautiful city then this is for you
