You got to give it to gay old Gary Marshall, off-of Chicago the movie: he sure knows how to whip up a slice of stellar pussycat. Look at his new movie, Nine! Teeming with the stuff, it is.
It’s based on an old film by Fellini (but don’t let that put you off) and it also stars Daniel Day Lewis (maybe let that put you off) as a man having a mid-life crisis *yawns, slips into irreversible coma, someone plays ‘All Woman’ by Lisa Stansfield, awakens out of what was thought to be an irreversible coma, orders a McDonalds breakfast, finds it’s fifteen years later and McDonalds doesn’t exist anymore*
And to give you thumbnails: Fergie – playing against type – stars as a prostitute, Dench as a theatrical producer, Penny as a burlesque dancer, Cotillard is his wife, Hudson is a Vogue journalist, Nicky ‘I love to dance’ K is a muse (how do you get that job?) and Sophia ‘I only eat paaastaaaa’ Loren is his mother.
And if you want to see a picture of Penelope ‘goes out with a lot of closeted gay men but don’t say anything’ Cruz getting her leg way up over her head, jump the jump…
