YOU WANT YOUR MTV, AND PARAMOUNT+ HAS IT

7 Unrealistic Expectations You Have From New Year's Eve Movies

New Year's Eve actually kind of sucks.

Ah, New Year's Eve. Time to put on your Sunday best, snuggle up to your gorgeous date, meet up with your friends and loved ones, say goodbye to the garbage that was 2014, and welcome in 2015 with a steamy kiss... or not.

Actually, New Year's Eve is more like "time to spend too much money on an outfit I won't wear again, pray that someone else will be single at this party then be sorely disappointed, and fall asleep by 11:30."

We place nearly all of these unrealistic NYE expectations on movies, since blaming them on our own naivety and tendency to cling to nostalgia is just completely unrealistic -- but not as unrealistic as these seven New Year's movie tropes:

1. Movie Expectation:

Reality:

The only other single person at this party is Oren.

Everybody will come together and sing "Auld Lang Syne" at midnight.

Half the party will be asleep by then. Half of the other half will be too busy conversing to even notice that it's midnight.

Your New Year's lover will be your OTP.
