Consensus: Shallow, sappy, and dull, New Year's Eve assembles a star-studded cast for no discernible purpose.

New Year's Eve impresses with its guest list but here these famous acquaintances are to be forgotten and never brought to mind.

Offering up genuinely unlikable characters and terrible dialogue, this comedy qualifies as one of the year's worst.
