"New Year's Eve" follows several characters into the new year with experiences as varied as you can imagine. With an all-star cast and the spirit of the holidays, how can it fail? What do Tennessee viewers have to say about it? The film features the likes of Halle Berry, Robert De Niro, Jon Bon Jovi, Ashton Kutcher, Seth Meyers, Hilary Swank, and several more. Can star power alone carry this film?
"Boring. There's your one word review. I recognized several names and faces on the poster and in the trailer and came to see it on their star power alone. My goodness was it tedious. It tries desperately to be a film of holiday spirit instead of a film carried on its actual merits. Believe me when I say that nothing happens." -- Ellen Harris, 34, Jackson
"The sad thing is that the first few minutes really pulled me into the film. Things started falling apart when the quick scene jumps made it clear the movie wasn't cohesive at all. It needed more work to even be relevant." -- Brittney Butcher, 37, Collerville
"Characters come in and out of importance without warning. Some don't even use their return to the screen for something important. It made it both difficult to remember what everyone was doing and care." -- Connie Shafer, 30, Raleigh
"I blame the problems of this movie on the world. You can gather an ensemble of talented actors and throw them into a film with a plot that's subpar at best. Why? Because audiences will come along for name recognition alone. Big mistake." -- Denise Flowers, 34, Collierville
"I was bored out of my mind. At one point the montage of character lives left me dozing off every few seconds. Scratch that. That was at 'one point.' That was pretty much the whole time." -- Eric Samson, 38, Germantown
"The film doesn't do anything wrong, it just doesn't do anything right. It's a very safe film that tries to be quirky and heartwarming. It fails at it. In the end it comes across as little more than a depressing time waster." -- Tabatha Harris, 30, Memphis
"You can tell most of the actors are just numbing themselves to this cinematic dribble. Zac Efron and Ludacris are two of the main ones I'm referring to. Neither acts much more beyond looking at the camera and hamming it up." -- Tom Wager, 25, Memphis
