I'd struggle to find anything uplifting to say about Nine Lives. It is certainly not of "cinematic" quality - however the quality of the video is no worse than the script, direction or acting (which are all lack-lustre). The story is painfully contrived and the film never gets better than it is in the first scene.
I loved "Breaking Away", which was released just at the time I got seriously into cycling - and long before I came out as gay - and I bought this film on DVD because I was interested to see Dennis Christopher in the cast - but he doesn't save the film.
I'd recommend that there are a million better ways to spend 75 minutes of your life, or to spend any amount of money. I still might throw the disc in the bin - I know I'll never watch it again or lend it to anyone.
