User Reviews

big names but nothing else
22 March 2012 | by Special-K88See all my reviews

A series of vignettes, centering around a vast array of N.Y.C. characters and their differing perspectives as they live through New Year's Eve, including a dying man whose final wish is to see the ball drop at Times Square, a Manhattan crew trying to ensure that same ball drops as scheduled, a work-obsessed gourmet chef dealing with her feelings for an old flame who suddenly re-enters her life, a single mother trying to "protect" her teenage daughter from the dangers of the big city, two pregnant couples competing for a big cash prize, two strangers with nothing in common who get trapped inside an elevator, and a middle-aged secretary who quits her job then makes it her mission to live out her outrageous resolutions. Garry Marshall's "follow-up" to Valentine's Day is made attractive by its star-studded cast, but--just like its predecessor--gives its actors nothing to do other than just show up and look good. Watchable, thanks to an all-star cast, but insignificant. **
