Adaptation of the Broadway musical take on Federico Fellini's 8 1/2
. Basically, a famous philandering filmmaker gets writer's block and everybody sings. Rob Marshall, who directed Chicago
takes on the Broadway smash, aided by a powerhouse cast including Daniel Day-Lewis, Marion Cotillard, Nicole Kidman, Penelope Cruz, Judi Dench and Sophia Loren. I enjoyed watching the cast (although Day-Lewis gets tiresome), but most of the songs were nothing special and I never felt involved in the characters. Then again, I'm not a big fan of musicals, so I may be missing the point. 104 minutes.
