(Director Rob) Marshall injects "Nine" with a number of larger-than-life and vibrant musical productions, but the screenplay doesn't serve much of a purpose, other than to fill in the gaps between the musical numbers.
Unfortunately, the execution of actual movies never lives up to the bizarro spectacles we mount in our minds. Nine is more a derailment than an actual train wreck, more a bumpy annoyance than a compellingly bloody panoply.
This has always been a show about the broads, and how they torment, tantalize, judge and revere the suffering mama's boy. The best way to approach Nine is as a fashion spread rather than an actual story.
It's all "a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing." That, my friends, pretty much sums up this silly, formless spectacle. For all its razzle-dazzle and brouhaha, 'Nine' is a bore, fading from memory almost instantly.
