I saw the movie Nine last night and here's the bottom line: I would watch Daniel Day Lewis do anything, even sing not very good songs in a distracting Italian accent (even roll around in a wheelbarrow as a spastic quadriplegic). I wish this movie would have been better, but it eventually won me over to a certain degree. I enjoyed it much more than Avatar because it doesn't have any creepy CGI, excluding Sophia Loren. What I was most troubled by in Nine is how fat Fergie looked onscreen. I kept thinking about how much thinner than me she is in real life, and how super fat I would look onscreen. It was discouraging.
As for Guido Contini, the main character in the movie--he needs to get some male friends.
