New Year’s Eve 2020 isn’t going to look the same as 2019- or any other year for that matter. If you’re in search of New Year’s movies to watch on December 31 instead of heading to a party on New Year’s Eve, here’s your list! Affiliate links are in this post.
List of New Year’s Eve Movies To Watch Instead of Going To a Party (You Know, For Reasons)
So I’ll admit up front: not all of these are pure New Year’s Eve movies.
But they have at least 1 scene during New Year’s Eve or are set during that time period at some point. December 31st or thereabouts are mentioned in these movies.
Sure, it’s kinda a stretch.
But what can I say? I don’t make Hollywood movies, I just report on them!
And they just don’t make a ton of 100% New Year’s Eve movies.
But let’s roll with it and check out this list of New Year’s Eve movies that I found.
