NEW YEAR'S EVE is an ensemble romantic comedy. The lives of several New York City couples and singletons intertwine during the course of New Year's Eve as the countdown to the Times Square celebrations approach. The film was classified '12A' for infrequent strong language.
The BBFC's Guidelines at '12A'/'12' state 'The use of strong language (for example, 'fuck') must be infrequent'. The main body of the film includes only a single use of strong language, although there is a silent but clearly mouthed second use in a 'blooper' that plays during the final credits.
The film also contains some mild sex references, including a passing and undetailed reference to 'porn'. There is a single drug reference when a teenage girl makes the point to her mother that she is neither a young child nor irresponsible by saying: "And this is not a training bra...I don't drink and I don't do drugs". One of the male characters has terminal cancer, although the issue is discreetly and sensitively handled. There is some mild bad language, including the terms 'crappy', 'shit', 'screw', 'damn', 'pissed', 'ass', 'hell' and 'bitch'. The use of 'bitch' is not personally directed and is delivered by an old lady who is having trouble with a lift door. She comments: "This gate is a bitch."
