This film was not rated highly by the "experts", but when I went to see it at the cinema, I basically left punching the air in delight and feeling very emotional for the turn of the year. New Year's Eve is a brilliant film for the festive spirit, and I do not blame them for waiting 1 year to release it on DVD, as everyone will now buy it for Christmas. It will get you laughing, emotional, and right up for a good new year, to put the past behind, and to look forward to an exciting future. Loved this film, can't wait until it is released!!
