New Year’s Eve Films 2010

  The Apartment (1960) Rated NR

C.C. Baxter has his future mapped out — all he needs to do is cozy up to the top feeders in the corporate food chain. But his fast track to the executive suite gets short-circuited when he falls for one of the bosses’ girlfriends.

  Bridget Jones’s Diary (2001) Rated R

It’s Monday morning. Bridget  has woken up with a headache, a hangover and her boss. Wickedly clever, this tale of Miss Jones’s yearlong odyssey from Mr. Right-here-right-now to Mr. Right delivers a rare glimpse into the inner workings of the female mind.

Holiday Inn (1942) Rated NR

Bing Crosby croons to the tune of the Oscar-winning “White Christmas” in Irving Berlin’s love triangle romantic comedy. Tired of the bright lights of showbiz, Jim Hardy retires to the countryside to become a farmer. He converts the farm into the Holiday Inn, open only on holidays, then competes against his pal for a singer-dancer’s affection.

I know most people consider this a christmas film but since the film is a year of holidays I think it’s more a new year’s film.

  Poseidon Adventure (1972) Rated PG

As the luxury liner Poseidon charts its course on New Year’s Eve, disaster strikes when an undersea earthquake causes a titanic tidal wave and capsizes the vessel, leaving just 10 survivors. Led by a no-nonsense reverend, the group must maneuver through airshafts, electrical cables and a burning engine room to the boat’s hull, which is their lone chance for escape.

 When Harry Met Sally (1989) Rated R

Can men and women remain friends without sex getting in the way? Nora Ephron’s episodic screenplay introduces womanizing, neurotic Harry and ambitious, equally neurotic Sally as chums who resist sexual attraction to support their friendship — a relationship always teetering on the brink of love. As the two draw closer, the question resurfaces: Can they stay just pals?
