||Boring, boring, boring|
Above all else, a movie must be entertaining. This movie failed because it beat you over the head with endless renditions of overdone, obvious, musical vignettes ans was short on drama and character development. I must admit, I did not see the end of the movie yet because I was just so bored and angry that I bought this DVD. That will teach me. Now some of the musical bits were not bad, but it was comical to see all these dramatic actors, not known for their musical prowess, spend so much time at it. Was their purpose just to let us know they could dance and sing as well as act. I would have like d a bit more acting and a lot less singing. I realize the academy rewarded this movie with several awards. Those too hip voters should be forces to watch this movie every day for a month as punishment. If you have insomnia, bet this DVD. You will be cured.

||CHICAGO - A MUST SEE MOVIE|
As I rarely go to the movies It's so good to see one on a big screen. I had been told by friends that the performances in this movie were so good you wanted to jump up and applaud, well I felt that way too! I bought the soundtrack cd as I love the music, Richard Gere's vocal is fantastic as is everything about this movie. However, everyone raved about Catherine Zeta-Jone, she was good but I thought Renee Zellweger outshone her! I first saw "Chicago" on the stage in the 70's in NYC with Gwen Verdon & Chita Rivera, it's amazing that all these years later it's now a Worldwide smash both on stage and screen and it wasn't written by Andrew Lloyd Webber!

The best movie I have ever seen.

|Best Film Musical In Years!|
Wow! Anyone who has known what Hollywood has done to perfectly wonderful stage musicals, like the horrible motion pictures of A CHORUS LINE and ANNIE just to name a few - will doubtless appreciate the fine conversion of the sexy, sultry Chicago of the stage to the sexy, sultry CHICAGO of the screen. It is an interesting adaptation full of intelligence and imaginative staging with choreography which captures the spirit of the Fosse original. And its inspired to see Queen Latifa strut her stuff, as well as Catherine Zeta-Jones (pure energy and a helluva dancer), Renee Zelweiger and Richard Gere do their own dancing and singing. Surprising is John C. Reilly as a downtrodden, hurt but devoted husband. His rendition of Mr. Cellophane is a dramatic highpoint and the heart of the picture. Theatre goers will enjoy the cameo of Chita Rivera (original stage Velma) and can relax in the hands of sure-footed stage and television director/choreographer Rob Marshall. Five stars *****. Don't miss it!
