Movie Review: Nine: The Disappointment of December?

Penelope Cruz, Kate Hudson, Fergie in NineThough Moulin Rouge showed that musicals could be cool again, it was Rob Marshall’s 2002 Oscar winner Chicago that proved they could be critical and financial successes, too. In other words, Marshall is largely responsible for the wave of hit musicals that have hit been released over the last decade, and he’s back with another star-studded adaptation with Nine.

Nine stars – brace yourself – Daniel Day-Lewis, Marion Cotillard, Penelope Cruz, Nicole Kidman, Judi Dench, Kate Hudson, Sophia Loren and Fergie, among others. The cast is just ridiculous. Do you know how many Oscars are represented in that group? Yeah, I can’t count that high, either.
