Nine cannot help but be a limp facsimile of a film that is so full of life and brio.

It's just so visually stunning and beautiful and different that I think that if you're an animation fan it's definitely one that you should have seen.

You'd be hard-pressed to find a better cast in any film this year.

Day-Lewis shows a previously unseen penchant for song and dance. Cruz, though, is the real star turn with a very sexy number. But in parts it's flat, and some more melodrama or plot would not have gone amiss.

It's a funny and not the least bit disingenuous moment that speaks to both the power of good storytelling to draw in people regardless of creed, and to the power glamor has over even the most ascetic individuals

While Fellini pondered the possibilities of sin and redemption, Nine 's all-singing, all-dancing, all-laughing remake proffers a mindless celebration of capital S (as in silly ) sin.

Though the film is uneven, it is worth seeing for the good parts. Daniel Day-Lewis does a credible job.

Though it wasn't the best movie musical, Nine certainly had its moments.
April 12, 2016
A painfully formulaic message, trite dialogue, and a strangely episodic narrative structure that renders the whole thing exhausting.
July 11, 2015
It's an over-the-top, eye-popping musical that doesn't completely satisfy, especially compared to it's original source classic.
September 24, 2014
Largely, the numbers just sit on top of the dramatic action, adding little to our understanding of the characters and seldom contributing to the advancement of the story.

What we get is a film that is close in story to Fellini's film, but which needed more time for its actresses and better music to make it all worthwhile.

Day-Lewis, over-egging the angst as well as the Eye-talian accent, is charmless and insufferable. But the person you really want to slap is Marshall, whose brash directing style simply doesn't suit Nine's more whimsical charms.

It has a lot to gnaw on, but it's worth gnawing on.
December 31, 2010
Sensual musical about love and art has mature themes.

While Marshall's Nine may be a bit of cheeky fun, it features little worth recommending it over Fellini's [8 1/2]. It's not so much a 'cover song' as it is a 'dance remix'.

Nine is a searing, carthartic dissection of the creative process; as much as it celebrates the trappings accumulated by those who succeed, it is also an engrossing examination of the deeply-troubled mindset that gets them there.

While film allows limitless opportunities to 'open up' a work that originated on the legit stage, Marshall seems intent on making the material feel even more stagebound on the big screen.
