New Year's Eve is dunderheaded kitsch, but it's the kind of marzipan movie that can sweetly soak up a holiday evening.

It would be inaccurate to say there are plots in New Year's Eve. There are a number of setups, and these get shuffled through faster than a card dealer in Atlantic City.

I always enjoy Elizondo; he has a way of elevating some pretty lame banter, and thanks to New Year's Eve he has his way all over again.

New Year's Eve is not unbearable. It's not bad, but it's not good, either. It delivers exactly what you expect: pretty faces, shallow romance and a mythical fanaticism about an event in a friendly Manhattan unblemished by hyper-vigilant security measures, obnoxious drunks or New York Jets fans.

An inferior retread of Marshall's equally contrived "Valentine's Day," only dressed up with coats and confetti.
40
Less a film than a product, New Year's Eve is so carefully calculated as to be, in its own way, admirable.
30
The result proves to be as appealing and effervescent as a flute of flat champagne.
30
At its heart, Garry Marshall's New Year's Eve is soup made of rocks.
25
Innocuous and dull.
25
Sitting through New Year's Eve is like attending a crowded party filled with pretty people who have nothing to say.
0
Bad beyond belief.
