Though the film is uneven, it is worth seeing for the good parts. Daniel Day-Lewis does a credible job.
September 11, 2017
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/10
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
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.
May 16, 2010
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.

Comes across as a very unimaginative re-working, a shallow interpretation.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10
May 11, 2010
Its Broadway brass tunes and mostly non-Italian cast makes Nine feel as Italian as a cold slice of Sbarro pizza.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
May 4, 2010
[Director Robert] Marshall and screenwriters Michael Tolkin and Anthony Minghella can only muster a ridiculous American fantasy of Italian culture and la dolce vita.
April 2, 2010
An uneven arrangement of musical numbers surrounding a stage-to-screen adaptation that was a screen-to-stage adaptation in the first place.

March 25, 2010
Nine combines a dream cast with a dreamy script and score for a thoughtful and enjoyable musical about art, life and love.
March 24, 2010
Un musical desparejo, de gran despliegue visual, con algunos pasajes olvidables y otros muy bien logrados. Lo mejor es el elenco (en especial Daniel Day-Lewis y Marion Cotillard) y el recuerdo del maestro Federico Fellini, en quien se inspira.
| Original Score: 3/5
March 19, 2010
Fellini is lucky that he didn't live long enough to see this.
February 8, 2010
Daniel Day-Lewis' miscasting throws the entire movie off kilter and one is left to contemplate the holes in the material.
