Chicago (2002) 
Among the Best Musicals Ever Made
4/4 stars

One of the best musicals ever made. Bob Fosse choreography, the amazing Catherine Zeta Jones in the role formerly played by Chita Rivera, and Rene Zelweger, along with Richard Gere and John C. Reilly. Every movement, every step, every note is a gem done with perfection. The cinematography and costuming are the best. Richard Gere talk-sings his songs, like many stars have done in musicals, including Richard Harris in Camelot. Gere does the tap dancing himself and does a great job. Notice the quiet number by John C Reilly called Cellophane Man, along with the glitzy Razzle Dazzle 'em number (which mirrors real life). A wonderful vacation to the Roaring 20s, complete with flappers, bad girls, bad guys, murder, and outstanding music writing and performing. A musical lover's delight. Among the best ever made. Close to perfect. South Pacific, Carousel, Oklahoma, The Music Man....and now Chicago. Fosse would be happy.
