Movie Musical “Nine” Fails to Shine

<em>Nine<em> C

Rob Marshall’s Fellini and Broadway-inspired Nine (C-), despite gorgeous costumes and cinematography, is as dramatically inert and unengaging a movie as one could imagine. Daniel Day-Lewis gives perhaps the only ho-hum performance in his catalogue. Kate Hudson’s scenes are fun (first time since Almost Famous), and the “curtain call” style ending reinforces the notion of “suppose a lot of major stars congregate and then do virtually nothing.”
