Enjoy these 30 great movies about New Year’s Eve!

You would not think that there would be so many great movies about New Year’s Eve, but I did my research and found so many great movies about New Year’s Eve! I chose movies that were available on Amazon, but also that had either the theme of New Years or a key scene took place on the holiday.

Best Movies About New Year's Eve
30 Great Movies About New Year's Eve 52

Great movies about New Year’s Eve

These movies are in ABC order to find them easily! My criteria were no horror, must have a least one important scene about NYE, and it must be available on Amazon without subscribing to another streaming platform. These are the best movies to watch on New Year’s Eve!

A Long Way Down

Four strangers change their minds about ending it all on NYE, and they decide to make a pact to meet again in 6 weeks to check in on each other.

About a Boy

A little boy teaches a rich and cynical young man how to be a grown up.

About Fate

A couple who believe in love and want it, are thrown together on NYE with hilarious results.

About Time

The woman of his dreams waits for a time traveling man.

An Affair to Remember

Classic! True love that doesn’t work out, but then it does. Love all the references to this in Sleepless in Seattle.

Age of Adaline

I never had seen this one because I wasn’t sure of the premise of the story. But, I am so glad that I saw this one! Blake Lively is wonderful in this role, and you will get all the feels from this movie. Sadness, regret, love, joy…

An American in Paris

Another classic starring Gene Kelly who plays a soldier who decides to stay in Paris after WW2. He and his best buddy fall in love with the same girl…

Are We There Yet?

A fun twist on a fun road trip flick-bottom line, it’s a disaster!

Assault on Precinct 13

Really bad cops try to take over a police station on NYE. A sergeant has to rally the good guys, which in this case include prisoners, to protect themselves.

Bridget Jones Diary

Loved this one! Bridget is 30+ and looking for love in all the wrong places and getting herself into all sorts of messes.

Can’t Buy Me Love

The nerd loves the most popular girl. Hard to believe Ronny grew up to be Dr. McDreamy…

Diner

Great cast! Set in the late 50s, and the diner is the place where it all happens for a set of young friends.

Eat, Pray, Love

True story of a woman’s self journey through three different countries and three different focuses.

Forest Gump

There is one scene where it is NYE. Because I love this movie so much, I am including it in this list.

Four Rooms

This one looks hilarious. Four different directors put this one together about four different story lines connected by the bell boy in a hotel.

Happy New Year

This is an oldie with cast members who were popular in the 80s. It’s the story of a pair of crooks who disguise themselves to rip off an exclusive jewelry store. Will they be successful?

High School Musical

Classic story of opposites attract. Add in music and dance and you have a hit. Even my boys loved this back in the day!

Holiday Inn

Fred Astaire and Bing Crosby combine to make a holiday classic. I love this one so much!

Mermaids

This was a fun one to rewatch. I was a teenager when I first saw this back in the day. At that time, I related to Winona’s character and all of her questions and lack of life experience. Now, as a mom, I loved Cher’s character. And, she was such a good mom. Trying her best in a world where she was such a unique character. This had all the feels!

Money Train

New Year’s Eve

This has a great collage of actors who all have fun intersecting story lines. If you haven’t see this one, I think it might be my favorite for this holiday.

Overboard

I am a purist, so I only am choosing the original. Not sure that the remake used the same story line with funny scenes at the NYE party.

Poseidon

NYE on the ship Poseidon. Giant rogue wave. Fire, flooding, sketchy power. A few survivors. What will happen?

Sleepless in Seattle

Love story from afar. Grieving widower ends up on a talk radio show because his worried son calls in. Lovelorn women all over the country want to help him get over the grief, but there is one in particular who might just be the right one. But, she is already engaged to be married.

Someone Like You

The storyline for this is fun. Great cast, and lots of laughs!

The Holiday

Two women who have failed at love decide to switch houses for the holidays. They each find someone new, but two weeks is not very long.

Trading Places

Comedy classic about a bet between 2 old men about 2 younger men. The results are hilarious.

Waiting to Exhale

Great chick flick! Friends who are each in different life spaces gather together for support and the bonds of friendship.

When Harry Met Sally

Harry and Sally share a ride to NYC after college graduation. Sally instantly dislikes Harry. They keep running into each other over the years, and a friendship is formed.

While You Were Sleeping

Lucy rescues the man of her dreams on the subway. While he is in a coma, she is befriended by his hilarious family, and the real man of her dreams turns out to be someone else entirely.

We hope you have a fun time watching these movies about New Year’s Eve!

Movie Night Add-Ons

It's always nice to have some extra props of your own to enjoy watching a great movie.
