Despite the fact that I absolutely loathe them the musical has major power at the box office.
Whether that be the traditional musical where all the cast burst into song for no apparent reason or the music biographies such as Ray or Walk the Line they have all found major success.
And having seen this success more and more big names are jumping on the old musical bandwagon, and this can be seen with the new movie Nine.
The film stars and string of Oscar winners including Daniel Day Lewis, Judi Dench, Nicole Kidman, Marion Cotillard, Penelope Cruz, Kate Hudson and eeerrr Fergie from the Black Eyed Peas.
Famous film director Guido Contini struggles to find harmony in his professional and personal lives, as he engages in dramatic relationships with his wife, his mistress, his muse, his agent, and his mother.
