Top 5 New Years Eve Movies to Watch

New Year’s Eve has arrived, and it can be intolerable for some, and a great party for others. Regardless, here is a list of movies that you can watch and enjoy today and tomorrow, all about or relating to New Years:

  1. Bridget Jones’ Diary (fun, cute and all about starting over, and making resolutions and decisions in your life. Features a real star turn from the great Renee Zellweger. Filled with hilarious moments and quotable lines)
  2. New Years’ Eve (Not a great movie, but star-filled and sweet as chocolate dipped in honey. Perfect escapism entertainment)
  3. The Poseidon Adventure (NYE is not the focus of this film, but it is the background of the storyline. The film is a great disaster film, and you’ll find yourself on the edge of your seat while watching this beautiful, action-packed adventure film)
  4. American Beauty (NYE isn’t even a feature in this film. However, it is a great story about Lester who is disgruntled with his life and starts making resolutions to his life. Its a very dark, gritty black comedy, but it presents the age old lesson – its never too late to change yourself for the better)
  5. When Harry Met Sally (One of the greatest romantic comedies has a memorable New Years Eve scene that is both iconic and tear-jerkingly beautiful. The entire film is worth a watch – warning, if you’re unattached, you’ll feel a slight twang of loneliness. The cure – rewatch American Beauty)

However, I must recommend New Year’s Eve from the TV show Louie as essential viewing – so hilarious, so poignant and carries the message of starting over with such perfect grace.

Have a great New Year and see you in 2014 for more Movies Unchained!
