Three short films, each depicting the same actors in different and sometimes overlapping roles. Together the stories illustrate the relationship between character, that role, its creator, and the creation.
Rotten Tomatoes® Score
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.

Common Sense Says
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").
