New Year’s Eve is Being Touted as the Biggest Rom-Com in the History of Rom-Coms

Looks like Valentine’s Day is really trying to out-do itself with this cast of characters. Are you ready? Let’s try … Zac Efron, Lea Michele, Ashton Kutcher, Michelle Pfeiffer, Halle Berry, Jessica Biel, Seth Meyers, Robert De Niro, Hilary Swank, Katherine Heigl, Josh Duhamel, Jon Bon Jovi, Sarah Jessica Parker and Abigail Breslin, and LUDACRIS. I mean, take that and combine it with the cast of VD and you’ve got practically the best actors and actresses in Hollywood, with the notable exception of George Clooney or Brad Pitt or something. It’s like the cheesy, sappy version of the Oceans movies.

The movie hits theaters December 9th. Is it on your to-do list?
