Nine, Daniel Day-LewisThe Broadway musical-based 'Nine' has everything a feature film could want: splashy musical numbers, an A-list cast to die for, and lush European locations sure to make even the most hard-boiled moviegoer swoon. Not to mention a seasoned director, producer and choreographer in Rob Marshall, whose 2002 film 'Chicago' scored an Oscar for Best Picture.

So why has 'Nine' grossed only $18.2 million at the box office to date? And why aren't people flocking in droves to see it? As one moviegoer noted after seeing the film, "There's two hours of my life I'll never get back. That was one of the most boring movies I've ever seen."
