Awful film from director Chris Columbus, Nine Months proves that Hugh Grant is a terrible actor that has no screen presence. The film was a total misfire. I hated this film, and thought it had so much more potential than what it turned out to be. This is boring, lazy filmmaking and is a film simply not interesting to get into. This film simply missed the mark in every respect. The result is a film that is very forgettable with a poor cast of actors and bad comedy. This film was simply one of those comedies that really tried too hard at delivering the laughter, but ultimately failed. Chris Columbus is very much hit and miss as a director, and he really misses it here. The film falls flat when it should be a good timer. This is a tiresome, unfunny film that really doesn't work. There's really no substance involved in this plot to keep you involved, entertained and ultimately interested. This was a painful film to watch, and one that doesn't deliver due to a poorly written, thought out script. If you're looking for a great film with this one, you will be sadly disappointed. There is nothing here that redeems its awfulness and it makes you wonder this film got made in the first place. As a romantic comedy, it fails, and as a film it fails even more. This is garbage that is uninspired and a waste of time to sit through. Chris Columbus really made one of his worst films with this one. Luckily he would redeem himself with the first Harry Potter film. This had some decent ideas that unfortunately went nowhere, and worst of all, it felt long, too long even because nothing good or entertaining really happens. Avoid this waste of film.
