This Bing Crosby classic is an obvious option, especially for kids who have been singing along to White Christmas all month.

New Year’s Eve

Josh Duhamel, Michelle Pfeiffer, Halle Berry, Jessica Biel, Zac Efron, and others will be in attendance on New Year’s Eve.
What about a post-apocalyptic film with a New Year’s theme?
