Garry Marshall's 'New Year's Eve' really drops the ball
Michelle Pfeiffer plays a meek office assistant who quits her job (John Lithgow plays her record label executive boss, a good bit of casting that should have spawned laughs) and hires a courier (an ultra confident Zac Efron) to help her accomplish a list Cheap Converse All Star Ox
Many of the elements are the same Converse Running Shoes 2018 as they were for "Valentine's Day," just moved back on the calendar a few weeks, with the script again weaving together a dozen or so plot lines that crisscross a holiday prone to sentimentalizing.
Though it's pure, rosy fantasy on screen, this is cynical, paint by the numbers entertainment, sold with a gaggle of stars spread across its movie poster like a telethon lineup.
And it's during these lighthearted extras and outtakes at the end of "New Year's Eve" where the first and only honest moment of the film occurs. Carla Gugino, who plays the OB/GYN delivering the expected babies, hints at the crassness of the enterprise. In a gag, she emerges from between Biel's legs with not a child, Converse Chuck Taylor 2 Low
The threads of romance Converse All Star High Tops White Leather
Ashton Kutcher, as a bearded grouch, gets stuck in an elevator for hours with backup singer Lea Michele. (I crossed my fingers that bathroom needs would spoil their budding romance, but alas.) Most incredulous, perhaps, is the pairing of nurse Halle Berry and dying Vietnam veteran Robert De Niro.
Some of the footage from these scenes came from last year's New Year's in Times Square shot by cinematographer Charles Minsky. This, surely, is the film's biggest accomplishment: The atmosphere is very true to the Times Square celebration.
Editor Michael Tronick deserves credit for stitching all of these corny story lines together smoothly. None of the characters are more than cardboard clichs, but the cast is likable and pretty enough (there are some rom com pros here, including Heigl and Josh Duhamel) that most are able to swallow the pallid dialogue without causing inadvertent laughs.
but "Valentine's Day" DVDs.
Katherine Heigl plays a chef catering a pre party featuring Jensen, who happens to be her ex boyfriend. Her sous chef is Sofia Vergara of "Modern Family."
En route to love and new beginnings, the many characters run around familiar New York tourist attractions and pair off predictably.
Abigail Breslin, now a teenager, is hoping to join her friends in Times Square, but her mother (Sarah Jessica Parker) won't let her. Jessica Biel, with husband Seth Meyers, is going into labor, competing for the new year's first baby against a rival couple (Sarah Paulson, Til Schweiger).
The cameos keep coming until the end, with even Mayor Michael Bloomberg dropping by. After all, this is as much an ad for New York as it is a movie. And I'm pretty sure I spotted Knick Amare Stoudemire as the credits rolled. Obviously, the NBA lockout was very hard on players.
If there is some kind of world record for schmaltz, this may have set it. Included here are first kisses, midnight rendezvous, dying fathers, newborn babies, husbands at war and trapped strangers. It's narcotic mawkishness, with notes played on heartstrings like a 12 string guitar.
emanate from where else? New York's Times Square. Hilary Swank plays a character running the ball drop festivities, at which a famous rocker (Jon Bon Jovi as "Jensen") is to perform, and where various police keep watch, including one played by Chris "Ludacris" Bridges.
Of course, the really good stuff will come once they get to "Columbus Day," or maybe, just maybe, "Ash Wednesday."
