So just to get this out of the way, who the hell isn’t in this movie? Just about every freakin’ person in Hollywood is in it. No doubt they’ll likely only have like 5-10 minutes of screen time throughout the whole film, but seriously? How ridiculous was it when Julia Roberts got paid $3 million just for the brief scene she had in Gary Marshall’s “Valentine’s Day” film last year? Ridic!
Anyhoo, the premise for Marshall’s “New Year’s Eve” basically follows the exact same plot as “Valentine’s Day”: The lives of several couples and singles in New York intertwine over the course of New Year’s Eve. Same deal, different holiday so you can guess how the film goes.
As for who stars in the film, take a deep breath, here goes: Robert De Niro, Ashton Kutcher, Michelle Pfeiffer, Hilary Swank, Lea Michele, Abigail Breslin, Sofia Vergara, Jessica Biel, Sarah Jessica Parker, Katherine Heigl, Zac Efron, Sienna Miller, Josh Duhamel, Ice Cube, Jon Bon Jovi, Seth Meyers, Til Schweiger, Halle Berry and Carla Gugino.
