A complete and utter abomination in every sense of the word. I absolutely despise this movie. The "highlight" is watching Richard Gere try to sing, when he can't at all. The lowlight is everything else in this man hating vomit inducing piece of overrated garbage.

A really good film. Still the best musical I've seen from recent years; films just aren't made like this anymore. Fantastic musical numbers and choreography. Catherine Zeta-Jones gives a phenomenal performance; she completely deserved her Oscar! Great film, but it did not deserve Best Picture!

A Great Musical

As someone who finds most musicals to be nauseating and annoying, I wasn't expecting much from this movie, despite the fact that it won the Best Picture Oscar. However, I thoroughly enjoyed it and found the songs to be very catchy and clever. Certainly one of the better musicals I have ever seen.

The level of talent needed to make a film such as this one is very high. The cast does not disappoint, with some great performances from Catherine Zeta-Jones and Renee Zellweger. I must admit to not being a very big fan of Zeta-Jones, but she is simply incredible in this film, which showcases her immense talent in singing, dancing, and acting. She certainly deserved her Best Supporting Actress Oscar for this performance.

This film is also a great commentary about the court of public ...

Chicago review

This reviewer is not really into musicals, this one impressed me nonetheless. Maybe because it was directed in a really good manner and well casted. Kelly (Catherine Zeta-Jones) performs All That Jazz while Roxie Hart (Renée Zellweger) is in the audience imagining her performing. Fred lies to Roxie and pays the price for it. Matron "Mama" Morton (Queen Latifah) recommends Lawyer Billy Flynn (Richard Gere) to Roxie. The editing, production and choreography was well planned. Catherine Zeta-Jones was energetic and electric while Renée Zellweger authentic. Screenplay was surprisingly good with a few wonderful quotes: Fred – “That’s life sweetheart.” Mama Morton - “It’s a crazy world.” Roxie – “Opportunities pass you by.” “You can like the life you're living, you can live the life you ...

Review - Chicago (2002)

All her life Roxie Hart (Renée Zellweger) wanted to be a showgirl. She idolized singers like Velma Kelly (Catherine Zeta-Jones) and wished to one day be just like her. Of course, in 1920’s Chicago, it’s not easy being a showgirl, and Roxie was willing to do anything or anyone to get there. When the man she slept with (Dominic West) turned out to be a fraud, she blew him away and landed herself in prison. Her only way out now was through her warden “Mama” Morton (Queen Latifah) and the slick lawyer Billy Flynn (Richard Gere) in the Best Picture winning movie musical, “Chicago.”

Obviously the highlight of the film would be the music, and it truly is well done. Zellweger and Zeta-Jones both belt out stunning performances, while Queen Latifah and Gere have equally stellar talents. Another ...
