With a cast as great as New Yearís Eveís, youíd think the film would be an easy sell for those of us who love a bit of romance in our movies around the holidays. But if Valentineís Day has taught us anything, itís that a huge cast of familiar names and pretty faces does not guaranty a hit.

That said, are the burns of V-Day so scarring that we wonít be drawn back to the theater to see which of New Yearís Eveís characters have ďfalling in loveĒ on their list of resolutions for the new year? Speaking for myself, no, probably not. Iím a sucker for romance and always on the look-out for films that might actually come close to the humor and heart seen in Love Actually. The Richard Curtis film embraced its excellent cast and proved to be a fine example of a feel-good comedy focused on the subject of love. New Yearís Eve looks like itís headed in that direction, but then again, so did Valentineís Day.

The poster for New Yearís Eve sells romance in New York with couple sharing an embrace and the New Yearís Eve Times Square ball in the background. The whole thing is tinted in gold, and in case the long list of celebrity names isnít grabbing your attention, their faces are lined up at the bottom.

The poster also points out that the film is by the director of Pretty Woman and Valentineís Day. Despite my dislike of Valentineís Day, I'd say Garry Marshall has certainly directed enough winners over the course of his career to earn the benefit of the doubt on this one. Or maybe I'm just easily sold by shiny gold posters, romantic stories and exceptionally pretty casts.

New Yearís Eve hits theaters on December 9th. You can read more about the film in our movie database here.
