This Reviewer loved it!
Jolene Mendez, Entertainment Spectrum

"To say "New Year's Eve" is cheesy is an understatement. Love struck people running around and trying to have a good time. But that is also what makes the film fun."

Nell Minow, Beliefnet

"Like "The Love Boat," this is stories about love featuring a lot of big stars and with depth that can only be measured with micrometers - and Sofia Vergara as Charo."

This Reviewer disliked it!
Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle

"What can be said about a movie that is nice and awful? That has a warm spirit and is 100 percent phony? That has all the stars in the galaxy and all the appeal of rotting fish?"

review
When reading reviews remember: "Critics are like eunuchs in a harem; they know how its done, they've seen it done every day, but they're unable to do it themselves." --Brendan Behan (successful Irish dramatist)

"Having the critics praise you is like having the hangman say you've got a pretty neck." --Eli Wallach (award winning screen actor)
