DON”T DROP THE BALL
Who ever heard of a New Year’s Eve movie? You did; you just didn’t know it.
While Christmas and Halloween may seem to have a monopoly on cinematic tie-ins, plenty of modern and classic films feature New Year’s festivities in full swing, making them the perfect accompaniment to your posh party or relaxed New Year’s night in. Here are some of the highlights:
Harry may have technically first met Sally during their ill-advised cross-country carpool, but a chance meeting at a New Year’s Eve party is where the sparks really started to fly.
A lot romantic, a little corny, and endlessly quotable, this is the New Year’s film for the hopeless romantic in all of us.
Besides being a classic comedy with charm to spare, Bridget Jones’s Diary is the rare double-rainbow of New Year’s movies: it both starts and ends on New Year’s Eve!
That’s a full year of life-altering lunacy for Bridget Jones and double the occasion-specific laughs for your New Year’s Eve.
Looking for something a little more unconventional? Snowpiercer may be a wild, weird, post-apocalyptic trip (also on a train!), but it also centers on a group of people celebrating the birth of a new year.
What happens next may not be exactly traditional, but you’ll want to watch all the way through until the end (of the movie and the year).
Ok, ok; this one’s a little obvious.
But with a star-studded cast featuring the likes of Halle Berry, Robert De Niro, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Jon Bon Jovi (?), this madcap, mixed-up romcom is the perfect injection of fun-filled holiday cheer to help you shake off any residual bad vibes and saunter merrily into the new year.
