I just stayed up late to watch "Nine." I am glad I didn't see it in the theatre. The movie was disappointing on some levels. However, the cast was to die for. The Italian accents, beautiful costumes, hair, and makeup totally made up for the lackluster plot. The movie is about a self loathing filmmaker who is lost in his craft. That is about it. I think Rob Marshall tried to go deeper with it, but it kind of fell short. I must say though.....the women in the movie were amazing for the most part. Yes, I could have done without Fergie and even Kate Hudson......but watching Sophia Loren made it all worthwhile. Nicole Kidman was gorgeous as ever......her skin! Penelope Cruz was absolutely breathtaking.
But it should be no surprise that Sophia Loren is stunning. I told my husband that I would love to spend just one afternoon with her. He agreed and said he would take her to Olive Garden. Hahaha. Funny guy. She is just unbelievable. I am now determined to watch any old movie of Sophia Loren's that I can get my hands on.
