Why-bother remake of Fellini’s 8 ½ -- actually a remake of the 1982 Broadway musical based on Fellini’s 1963 film – stars haggard Daniel Day-Lewis as a stressed-out movie director too busy fending off his numerous girlfriends and mistresses (Penelope Cruz, Nicole Kidman, Kate Hudson, Fergie), not to mention his wife (Marion Cotillard, the lone reason to sit through this) or his mother (Sophia Loren), to finish writing his movie as it goes into production. Most of the above sing the easy-to-forget songs by Arthur Kopit and Maury Yeston in their own voices, but none of it is remotely charming unless you enjoy half-hearted playacting, a scattershot scenario, and director Rob (Memoirs of a Geisha) Marshall’s bright idea of having the actors speak in fake-sounding, Italian-accented English. Somewhere, Fellini is spinning in his grave. A five-hundred-kilo brick of gorgonzola (126 min.).
