Stars May Shine, But Nine Still Suffers from Sensory Overload
- Friday, December 18, 2009
- Drugs/Alcohol: Social drinking plus cigarette smoking throughout.
- Language/Profanity: Compared to many PG-13 films, "Nine" is pretty light on bad language. There are a couple of unsavory words, plus the occasional declaration of "Oh my G—!"
- Sex/Nudity: Guido isn't exactly shy about his extramarital dalliances, even his wife knows about his mistress, Carla (but doesn't necessarily accept the relationship). Guido and Carla are later shown in bed in a couple of scenes, and it's implied that they have sex, although nothing more than foreplay is shown. During her song, Carla's performance is highly sexualized with her breasts nearly spilling out of her costume, provocative song lyrics and racy dance moves. Later on, one of Guido's childhood fantasies plays out in his mind when his younger self is ogling a plump prostitute who's moving suggestively near a beach.
- Violence: None.
