Happy New Year’s, everyone in Hollywood! The New Year’s Eve trailer is out, and celebs are sprinkled throughout like the beer-soaked confetti covering your carpet on January 1st. The cast includes, but is not limited to, Lea Michele, Ashton Kutcher, Zac Efron, Jessica Biel, Sarah Jessica Parker, Sofia Vergara, Abigail Breslin, Seth Meyers, Josh Duhamel, Sienna Miller, Carla Gugino and a partridge in a pear treeeeeee. Oh, and Robert De Niro for a split second at the very,very end.
Maybe we’ve just been burned before, but anyone who’s seen Valentine’s Day, director Gary Marshall’s other rom-com starring five billion A-listers, knows that more celebrities does not mean more enjoyment (unless we’re talking about a charity fundraiser or an orgy). Not that the movie doesn’t have a few high points: an incredibly schlubby Michelle Pfeiffer, a mid-custody-battle Halle Berry, Katherine Heigl and Jon Bon Jovi‘s slap-a-thon and, of course, the Hilary Swank/Ludacris coupling that we are praying is actually the movie’s main focus. If we do end up seeing this movie, it’ll be in the same way we ring in the New Year: drunk, in Times Square and wearing only a diaper and sash.
