What are you watching new year’s eve?


On twitter, the meme is #worstnewyearsevemovies (Boogie Nights, Sunset Boulevard, New Year’s Eve). On Facebook and my email inbox, friends are asking, what should I watch on New Year’s Eve?

Everybody’s favorite is Billy Wilder’s The Apartment, and it’s the right proportions of bitter and sweet.

While the idea of watching a New Year’s Eve film on New Year’s Eve is a little bit like matching the movie you’re watching to the cuisine you’re eating, my New Year’s Eve films are these.

For laughs, Trading Places.

For romance, Ninotchka or Bell, Book and Candle.

For ring-a-ding-ding, Ocean’s 11, the original.

Your favorites? Why?
