Nine: Rob Marshall

This did not have what a musical should have - memorable music or,since this is now over two decades old as a show, familiar tunes. The staging was good and much of the acting more than adequate, especially from Marion Cotillard who was more deserving of a Best Supporting Actress nomination than the sexy Miss Cruz who all but fell out of her costume in her
main number. Day Lewis, despite the accent, Loren and Dench were OK as was Fergie, the Black-Eyed Pea but Hudson and Kidman could have e-mailed their parts in.
