    Sophisticated, sexy and stylishly decked out, Rob Marshall's disciplined, tightly focused film impresses and amuses.
  2. 75
    Rob Marshall's flawed but frequently dazzling Nine is a hot-blooded musical fantasia full of song, dance, raging emotion and simmering sexuality.
  3. A spectacle where A-list talent strives mightily to elevate a C-plus effort.

    After a while, Nine plays like some Hollywood charity revue.

    A joyless trudge, particularly when compared to Fellini’s vibrant original?
  6. 50
    The movie is full of risible pontifications about the nature of art but falls well short of capturing the angst of creative frustration.
  7. 25
    It's a film within a film about a film within a film, and seems to lose layers of authenticity with each iteration, finally becoming a profoundly alienating experience.

    It's funny how people come on here and just give a movies bad grades wthout having watched them. One guy said the movie was 2.5 It's funny how people come on here and just give a movies bad grades wthout having watched them. One guy said the movie was 2.5 hours....guess he watched something else. This movie was definitely not a masterpiece, but the critics got this completely wrong...it was not as as bad as they made it out to be. It was just a good satisfying and entertaining time at the movies. The numbers were great, the acting was better, the story was a little thin and underdeveloped. Some say it was chaotic, it's meant to be that way...we're supposed to get a feel for Guido's frustration. Some characters were underdeveloped and thus seemed out of place, thats the writing...too much was cut out that should have stayed. In fact i wish the movie was 2.5 hours, maybe it would have been better. I'd still give it a 7, and i'll bump it up one because the acting was excellent! Judi Dench is completely underrated in this movie...she was great! Expand

Weakened to fit another plain film not worth watching with any men around here. Expand

    A nightmare of timing with a staggering start leading to a collapse in the middle with an inadequate finish. The music poorly contrived.

Though the costumes were beautiful the movie failed to capitalize on the period. Kate Hudson and Fergie had the best numbers and the best choreography. Daniel Day Lewis had the worst. Expand

    The "Italian" acting in my opinion was kind of in the middle for me...either you exaggerate the funny Italian accent or you do it for real. The "Italian" acting in my opinion was kind of in the middle for me...either you exaggerate the funny Italian accent or you do it for real. None of the songs were very interesting at all. I don't understand how a movie with so many top actors wasn't entertaining to me at all. Expand

    Fellini is going to rise from his grave and kill those responsible for this steaming pile.
