Winner of six Academy AwardsR 2003 including Best Picture, and starring Academy Award nominee Best Actress, CHICAGO and Golden Globe winner Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy, CHICAGO Renée Zellweger BRIDGET JONES'S DIARY, Academy Award winner Best Supporting Actress, CHICAGO Catherine Zeta-Jones TRAFFIC, Academy Award nominee Best Supporting Actress, CHICAGO Queen Latifah BRINGING DOWN THE HOUSE, Golden Globe winner Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy, CHICAGO Richard Gere UNFAITHFUL, and Academy Award nominee Best Supporting Actor, CHICAGO John C. Reilly GANGS OF NEW YORK -- CHICAGO is a dazzling spectacle cheered by audiences and critics alike! At a time when crimes of passion result in celebrity headlines, nightclub sensation Velma Kelly Zeta-Jones and spotlight-seeking Roxie Hart Zellweger both find themselves sharing space on Chicago's famed Murderess Row! They also share Billy Flynn Gere, the town's slickest lawyer with a talent for turning notorious defendants into local legends. But in Chicago, there's only room for one legend! Also starring Lucy Liu CHARLIE'S ANGELS.
Bob Fosse's sexy cynicism still shines in Chicago, a faithful movie adaptation of the choreographer-director's 1975 Broadway musical. Of course the story, all about merry murderesses and tabloid fame, is set in the Roaring '20s, but Chicago reeks of '70s disenchantment--this isn't just Fosse's material, it's his attitude, too. That's probably why the movie's breathless observations on fleeting fame and fickle public taste already seem dated. However, Renée Zellweger and Catherine Zeta-Jones are beautifully matched as Jazz Age vixens, and Richard Gere gleefully sheds his customary cool to belt out a showstopper. Yes, they all do their own singing and dancing. Whatever qualms musical purists may have about director Rob Marshall's cut-cut-cut style, the film's sheer exuberance is intoxicating. Given the scarcity of big-screen musicals in the last 25 years, that's a cause for singing, dancing, cheering. And all that jazz. --Robert Horton
