List of New Year’s Eve Movies To Watch Instead of Going To a Party (You Know, For Reasons)

So we’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.

It’s the same criteria used for the list of Thanksgiving movies and the list of Christmas movies.

Sure, it’s kinda a stretch.

But what can we say? We don’t make Hollywood movies, we 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 we found.
