Nine Reviews

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

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 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.
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.
September 24, 2012
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.

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'.

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.
May 11, 2010
Its Broadway brass tunes and mostly non-Italian cast makes Nine feel as Italian as a cold slice of Sbarro pizza.
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.

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.

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.

Nine doesn't remake Federico Fellini's 8 1/2 so much as it pillages the classic film for the purposes of Broadway vamping.
January 27, 2010
The musical numbers are delightful but what surrounds them drains the energy provided by those musical moments.
January 21, 2010
Rob Marshall falls flat with this surprisingly unengaging piece of eye candy.
