Anyone who knows me even a little bit knows that I am an absolute slave to routine when it comes to movies that I watch certain times of the year. As we bid farewell to 2012 (and GOOD RIDDANCE!) I find myself returning to these movies yet again. I love them and watch them every year.
The Poseidon Adventure (1972)
Just after midnight on New Years Eve, a huge wave crashes into a cruise ship and flips it over and it becomes a desperate quest for survival. Sounds depressing but it's pretty campy and very quotable. I've seen it a billion times.
200 Cigarettes (1999)
It's New Year's Eve, New York, 1981. The film follows several people around the city as they slowly make their way to the same party. Martha Plimpton plays the neurotic hostess desperately hoping somebody shows up, and the cast also includes Christina Ricci, Gaby Hoffman, Ben and Casey Affleck, Janeane Garofalo, Kate Hudson, Jay Mohr, Dave Chappelle, Paul Rudd and Courtney Love among others. It's cheesy, it's silly, it's a lot of fun!
When Harry Met Sally... (1989)
A classic! I love his profession of love on New Year's Eve...isn't that what every girl dreams of? Swoon!
Here's to a fantastic new year!
