MUSICALS - CHICAGO(2002)


This is a decent movie, but as a musical, not the
greatest!! Had this been a straight movie without
the musical numbers, I think it would have been great!
Except for "All That Jazz" there are no memorable
songs in this!! And Richard Geer as a singer leaves
something to be desired!! Still, the story is pretty
interesting, and I believe kinda loosely historical!
And the costumes and feel of the twenties are pulled
off very well! Probably worth a watch every couple of
years or so, but not much more than that!! B

From IMDb.com:

This 6 time academy award winning musical including
best picture truly is a spectacle. The dazzling costumes,
the bright lights, the spectacular musical numbers! No
one will ever be able to say that this movie adaptation
of the hit Broadway play doesn't deliver on all of those
things. Catherine Zeta Jones, Renee Zellweger, Richard
Gere, Queen Latifah, and John C. Reilly all give it
their all with their performances here, especially
Renee, she really blew me away here. The singing and
musical numbers are fabulous and dazzling in every way,
and the choreography is magnificent, it'll make you
question how in the hell the actors learned to do all
that. The plot is interesting enough to keep the
audiences attention, especially fans of the Broadway
play. I'll be honest, the movie as a whole didn't
completely blow me away, but it is a well made film
that'll entertain. Chicago receives a 7/10. - Davis P
