The fates of nine people are intricately tied together in director Dean Howell's thoughtful meditation on modern relationships. Ronnie is getting up there in years, and as he begins his journey into the online world he begins to reflect on the many love affairs he has had over the course of his life. Meanwhile, Tony the drug dealer Mikey finds his infatuation with smoldering hustler Bo becoming more intense as he moves dope on the streets to help provide for his mentally handicapped younger brother. On the steamy side of things, television producer Daniel, his boyfriend Corey, and their pool boy Carlos engage in a heated menage-a-trois that threatens to go bad, while Lisa and her harried husband Ralph get ready for the arrival of their firstborn child. Later, when Lisa receives a fateful telephone call, all of these disparate stories slowly begin to come together. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

This so-so movie is probably about real lives for some people but I hope not. This sad theme is about HIV people who have unsafe sex with others while not disclosing their condition to the next person. There are very few upbeat themes while negativity is strong. If you are still interested in this movie be prepared to be depressed about the chain of events.
After reading the reviews, I was ready to watch five minutes of this movie and send it back. Yes, it is low budget and not a real "feel good movie", but I honestly found the story line believable and interesting. I felt like the actors were real people telling their story which I guess would make that good acting. It is what it is and if that's what you are wanting to see, I would recommend it.
I thought "Nine Lives" gave realistic insights into the sometimes gritty lives of different kinds of REAL, average gay men living in the LA metro area. No caricatures, no castrated sex scenes. Super low budget, shot in June of '03. I liked it and would recommend it to anyone who wants to see a timely adult film about gay life minus the lisps, and trannies, etc. Only problem with the film is that it's only 75-minutes long; I could have watched 175 minutes, being the voyeur that I am. The director, Dean Howell, and Debra Wilson Skelton give especially good performances in a generally very well acted and directed, though very short, film. Screenplay from a Michael Kearns play ( he's also in the film).
