We trawl acres of celluloid for the best New Year’s Eves, from romcoms and musicals to gangster flicks and comedies, from parties-for-two to hellishly elaborate dance sequences
Most of the films in this list merely contain scenes set on New Year’s Eve. Not New Year’s Eve, though, because all of New Year’s Eve happens during New Year’s Eve. A Love Actually-style ensemble anthology (the middle part of a trilogy that began with Valentine’s Day and ended with Mother’s Day), this film attracted Halle Berry, Robert Downey Jr, Hilary Swank and Jon Bon Jovi. It is also terrible, but you knew that.
