If you're single and not particularly fond of $200 open-bar specials, confetti and singing "Auld Lang Syne," New Year's Eve can been an epic bummer. But it can also be a wonderfully magical time when the A-list stars of Two and a Half Men and Glee hook up, Zac Efron embarks on an adventure with an older woman who looks a whole lot like a brown-haired Michelle Pfeiffer (probably because it is), and Justin Timberlake's ex is having a baby with the guy who does "Weekend Update" on Saturday Night Live.
If all of that sounds too good -- or weird -- to be true, you haven't watched the heartwarming teaser trailer for New Year's Eve, director Garry Marshall's thematic sequel to the 2010 rom-com hit Valentine's Day. Check it out below!
The film features an ensemble cast of A-listers the likes of which the world has never seen (at least not since Valentine's Day). In the two-minute trailer alone, there are 20 big-name stars (yes, we counted), including Josh Duhamel, Sarah Jessica Parker, Ashton Kutcher, Lea Michele, Katherine Heigl, Jon Bon Jovi, Jessica Biel, Seth Meyers, Sofia Vergara, Robert De Niro, Hilary Swank, Ludacris, Abigail Breslin, Halle Berry, and the aforementioned Efron and Pfeiffer. Heck, even Ryan Seacrest cameos as himself. And somehow the stories of all of these characters -- and more! -- will tangentially intersect over the course of one Dec. 31 in New York City.
Newly minted Two and a Half Men lead Kutcher and Glee starlet Michele play platonic pals who, we're betting, realize that they like each other more than friends. Efron, meanwhile, is a bike messenger who helps Pfeiffer's character cross some things off her N.Y.E. bucket list (dancing with the guy from High School Musical, for one). Biel and SNL's Meyers play a couple hoping to have the first baby of the New Year -- with a little help from Berry's nurse, of course. Duhamel is a tuxedo-wearing guy in search of his mystery soul mate (Sarah Jessica Parker perhaps?). And Robert De Niro reprises his role as sociopathic Travis Bickle from Taxi Driver. Kidding! He looks to be the sage New Year's Eve guru here.
How do all their stories intertwine? We'll have to wait until the movie hits theaters on Dec. 9 to find out. Sure, it looks like the movie hasn't met a rom-com cliché it doesn't love, but chances are it'll be a nice, sugary sweet holiday treat.
