Star-packed cast cozy up for ‘New Year’s Eve’

‘Tis the season for serious Oscar-worthy films, and also for light and frothy romantic comedies featuring more A-list stars than you can stuff into a turkey. Romantic comedy “New Year’s Eve,” released in U.S. movie theaters on Friday, falls into the latter category. The follow-up to director Gary Marshall’s $216 million global hit “Valentine’s Day,” the holiday movie stars Robert De Niro, Halle Berry, Ashton Kutcher, Hilary Swank, Sofia Vergara, Jessica Biel, Zac Efron, Michelle Pfeiffer, Katherine Heigl, Sarah Jessica Parker, and many more in smaller roles or fleeting cameos.
