We're a few days early (the midnight kiss is for 10 days hence) but it's fun: newly-single, failed writer Wilson just wants to spend the rest of a very bad year in bed, but he's pushed by a friend into posting an online personal ad on New Year's Eve. That the self-deprecating "Misanthrope to Misanthrope" ad he reluctantly writes gets a response at all is surprising. But then attractively glamorous blonde Vivian is full of surprises, most of them unpleasant. Like a spikier Before Sunrise, what ensues is in turn hilarious, deeply touching, chaotic and charming as these two quirky personalities edge through the Los Angeles evening towards midnight.
