The 10 Best New Year's Parties in Movies

1. The Godfather: Part II (1974)

A midnight kiss is a New Year's Eve tradition, but the late-night buss Fredo Corleone (John Cazale) receives is a kiss of death, delivered by mob boss brother Michael (Al Pacino), after he realizes that big brother helped orchestrate an assassination attempt on his life.

Not even the lush pageantry of a night out in Havana—complete with music, dancing, waterworks, sparkly outfits, and appropriately festive headgear—can take the sting out of Michael's declaration that "You broke my heart!" Fredo, who flees his brother, rings in the new year knowing that it may be his last; it won't be long before he's sleeping with the fishes. ¡Feliz Año Nuevo!
