This week's reviewed movie is:
New Year's Eve

New Year's Eve was put together haphazardly, moving from one tale to the next -- some bits cut too quickly, while others are left hanging.

And if that's not enough, there are other parts not worth describing.

It tries to show people making resolutions to make changes and promises of that romantic midnight kiss as people gather in New York City to celebrate New Year's Eve.

It's just plain awful. 
The old T.V. show Love American Style finally makes it to the big screen, thanks to Garry Marshall and the success of last year's Valentine's Day -- one of the worst romantic films ever made -- until now!

Figuring quantity makes up for quality, New Year's Eve gives two dozen stars, cliches and banal by-the-numbers situations to impress the date who forced you into the theater in the first place.

Obviously holidays and romance don't deserve decent screenplays. 
The movie New Year's Eve follows two dozen interconnected New Yorkers as they look for love before the big ball comes down in Times Square.

The only thing I liked about this flick is the conclusion when the end credits were rolling; at least the outtakes showed the big all-star cast having fun with their bloopers.

This picture suffers from celebrity overload, and is pleasant and harmless in an uninteresting, dull way.
