That's what happens with the 2011 romantic comedy "New Year's Eve," which features some of Hollywood's biggest stars in a story set against the backdrop of one of the most beloved holidays. The charming movie comes to DVD May 1.
The film features the converging storylines of a number of different people who are in New York City for New Year's Eve. First, there's Paul (Zac Efron) and Ingrid (Michelle Pfeiffer), who embark on a quest to complete all of Ingrid's resolutions before midnight. At the same time Paul's sister Kim (Sarah Jessica Parker) and friend Andy (Ashton Kutcher) are dealing with their own problems on the final day of the year.
Amid all the commotion, Stan Harris (Robert De Niro) is dying from cancer and after he has refused treatment, he wants to hang on long enough to see the ball drop in Times Square one last time. Will everyone be able to have the New Year's Eve they all want?
