With the creme de la creme of Hol­ly­wood stars and an up­beat plot, view­ers would be for­given for think­ing New Year’s

Eve could be the film of the year. But the tal­ent of Robert De Niro and Michelle Pfeif­fer can’t save this ro­man­tic com­edy from be­ing a ma­jor let- down. Set in New York, it re­volves around a col­lec­tion of peo­ple pre­par­ing for the fes­tive hol­i­days, who find love in the right or wrong places. The most cutesy frag­ment is when a New Year’s Eve hater ( Ash­ton Kutcher) and his perky neigh­bour ( Glee’s Lea Michele, pic­tured) get stuck in a lift. Shal­low sto­ry­lines make this an un­for­tu­nate waste of tal­ent.
