New Year’s Eve featured an all-star cast that is hard to come along in one film. In addition to Berry, the movie included Jessica Biel, Robert De Niro, and Ashton Kutcher, to name a few. Therefore, it was that much more difficult for the Oscar-winning actress to stand out. While it was great seeing her star as Common’s wife, the film received terrible reviews and was criticized for its clunky script and missed opportunities. Halle, ultimately, just seemed to get lost in the overcast hoopla.
