Here’s the truth – when we saw the trailer a few months ago, we had to pick our jaws off the floor and we spent good time doing so because we were shocked at the star-studded ensemble. In a giant, havoc “love-o-rama” style storyline, director Garry Marshalls does it again!
Some may call it corny, some aren’t exactly big fans of cheese, and lo and behold, we’ve even come across people who truly hated the movie. But hey, if you’ve watched “Valentine’s Day”, then you would know that “New Year’s Eve” will do for the year end what “Valentine’s Day” did for Valentine’s Day.
“New Year’s Eve” was a giant puzzle that left us no time to blink for the fear of missing out important pieces of the stories. From motherly and daughter-fatherly affection, to rekindling relationships, to romantic serendipity, to chances and second chances, the movie is only bursting with one thing – love.
We must say there were many scenes where we laughed out loud, but there were many others that left us with a lump in our throats.
“..stop and reflect on the year that has gone by. To remember both our triumphs and our missteps, our promises made and broken. The times we opened ourselves up to great adventures or closed ourselves down for fear of getting hurt because that is what New Year’s is all about – getting another chance.”
“A chance to forgive, to do better, to do more, to give more, to love more. And stop worrying about ‘what if’ and start embracing what would be. So, when that ball drops at midnight and it will drop, let’s remember to be nice to each other, kind to each other. And not just tonight but all year long.”
Forgiveness, and above all, love. And well, magic really does happen in New York. There’s no better time to catch “New Year’s Eve” at a cinema near you:
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, everyone.
