Owen Gleiberman from Entertainment Weekly gave it a C. He said, “If there’s a lesson to be learned from Nine, it’s that writer’s block is not a great subject for a musical.”
Chris Barsanti over at Filmcritic.com gave it a C. He stated, he was “wandering, sporadically entertaining.” Kirk Honeycutt gave it a C. He said, ” The disappointments here are many, from a starry cast the film ill-uses to flat musical numbers that never fully integrate into the dramatic story.”
Lou Lumenick at the New York Post gave it a D+,stating, The jaw-droppingly awful “Nine” is the worst Broadway-to- Hollywood transfer since “The Producers” — the cinematic equivalent of that movie’s show “Springtime for Hitler.”
A. O. Scott over at the New York Times gave it a D rating. He said, “Straining to capture artistic frenzy, it descends into vulgar chaos, less a homage to Federico Fellini’s 8 ½ (its putative inspiration) than a travesty. ”
Reelviews’ James Berardinelli rated it a B. He stated, “works better on stage, where the audience is there experiencing things live.”
Peter Travers over at Rolling Stone gave it a B. He said, “Rob Marshall’s flawed but frequently dazzling Nine is a hot-blooded musical fantasia full of song, dance, raging emotion and simmering sexuality.”
USA Today’s Claudia Puig gave it another C. She stated, “Nine has glamour. Rome looks fabulous, as does Daniel Day-Lewis, zipping around in his Fiat in dark shades, skinny tie and slicked-back hair. But there’s no substance beneath the gloss.
“Nine” movie is in theaters now.
