Chicago - REVIEW

Film of the Day #151/ 300

Oscar winning satire all about the razzle-dazzle; Catherine Zeta-Jones, livelier and sexier than she's ever been on screen, and Renee Zellweger, who nails down Roxie's brassiness with aplomb, are a scintillating duo, however, Richard Gere steals the show in this magical musical masterpiece.  Chicago is a stunning show stopper, a seamless integration of toe-tapping tunes, riveting routines in the wicked and wonderful seedy side of the swing city. Chicago sustains its energy and momentum and cleverly continues to weave together a realistic narrative with staged theatrical interpretations. Spectacular, extravagant, and all that jazz!
