Trivia

When Hilary Swank's character, Claire, hands the duties off to Hector Elizondo's character, Kominsky, she whispers in 'Chris 'Ludacris' Bridges'' ear, "Watch him like a Hawk." In Garry Marshall's earlier film, 'The Princess Diaries (2001)' (in which Elizondo also starred), Julie Andrews' character, Clarice, whispers the same line to Kathleen Marshall's character, Charlotte, during Mia's makeover by Larry Miller's character, Paolo.

Quotes

Sam: Sometimes it feels like there are so many things in this world we can't control. Earthquakes, floods, reality shows... But it's important to remember the things that we can. Like forgiveness, second chances, fresh starts... Because the one thing that turns the world from the longing place to a beautiful place... is love. Love and any of its forms. Love gives us hope... Hope for the New Year. That's what New Year's Eve is to me. Hope and a great party!

Just Awful
28 December 2011 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

For the first time ever I have been forced to write a review about a movie, because I don't want everyone to spend money of this diabolical piece of work.

What a waste of a superb cast. There is not ONE redeeming feature of this movie. Total waste of my time just to get to the theatre to watch it. I was gone after an excruciating 40 minutes. Don't let the big names fool you. They are ALL way off the mark, but that is to be expected with such a bad script and, oh God, where was the director?.

A big red light and a solid warning..give this a huge miss.If it was free- to-air I'd still change channel.
