Critics Consensus: Though The Nines doesn't solidify as well as writer/director John August would hope for, Ryan Reynolds's strong performance makes each of the film's intriguing segments worth watching.

Befuddling sci-fi/thriller mix isn't for kids.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that although this confusing indie sci-fi/thriller may attract teens thanks to heartthrob lead Ryan Reynolds and Gilmore Girls alum Melissa McCarthy, viewers of all ages could end up more befuddled than entertained. It tackles mature themes -- sex, drugs, God, the universe -- and includes an underlying current of violence (one character is murdered). The main character goes on a massive drugs-and-drink fueled bender, and the dialogue is littered with expletives ("s--t," "f--k").
