A cast including Sarah Jessica Parker, Ashton Kutcher, Jon Bon Jovi, Katherine Heigl, Josh Duhamel, Halle Berry, Jessica Biel, Robert De Niro, Zac Efron, Lea Michele, and Michelle Pfeiffer wasn’t enough to get anyone to go see ‘New Years Eve’, which was number 1 at the box office despite grossing just $13.7 Million. It’s the 66th lowest debut of 2011, even lower than ‘Something Borrowed’ and ‘Jumping the Broom’, which I don’t think are even real movies.
It did much worse than ‘He’s Just Not That Into You’ ($27.8M) and ‘Valentines Day’ ($56.3M), and doesn’t bode well for ‘What to Expect When You’re Expecting‘, which all share the same theme of being romantic comedies with a big-name ensemble cast embarrassing themselves in idiotic vignettes for money. How Zac Efron wasn’t a vampire in this thing defies belief.
