Three takes on Nine

Some early reviews are out today on the highly-anticipated musical Nine.

Variety‘s Todd McCarthy loves it, Kirk Honeycutt at Hollywood Reporter hates it and David Poland of The Hot Blog is decidedly mixed (loves Cotillard and Cruz, dislikes the rest of the cast).

Musicals tend to have mixed responses critically, and those hardly predict the audience response. Last year Mamma Mia! received dreadful reviews and it’s the highest grossing musical of all-time.  Moulin Rouge! divided critics but it went on to be nominated for Best Picture. We shall see.
