Saw "Chicago" this afternoon....it was 2 hours of pure escapism and entertainment. I haven't seen a movie like this since I was very young (mainly because they haven't MADE 'em like this since then) and I loved it! Nothing depressing or intellectual, nothing that required thought or demanded that the viewer form an opinion........just old-fashioned fun.
So---have any of you seen it yet, and what did you think of it? Did Richard Gere really get snubbed by the Academy? (In a word: YES.) How did you like Queen Latifah as probably the first sexy "zaftig" woman ever to grace the screen? And what about that Catherine Zeta-Jones---who knew she was actually as talented as she is gorgeous?
For anyone who hasn't seen it, don't expect the usual with this movie: people who don't usually sing and dance do both in the film, and they're even good at it. There's no real plot, just a story, and there's no whodunit here.......we know whodunit in the first few minutes. But the whole thing is very well done, and the chorus of "All That Jazz" will be stuck in your brain long after the closing credits.

luv the cell block tango!..."pop, six, squish, uh-uh, cicero, lipschitz...he had it coming....he only had himself to blame...if you were there...if you had of seen it....i betcha you would have done the same!" i especially luv the bernie & his popping gum part..."i gave him two warning shots...*into his head*!"...& the #17~"the spread eagle!"
my other favorite song is if you're good to mama.
my daughter downloaded the songs from the motion picture on kazaa.com do take care to download the movie soundtrack & not the broadway version...they're on kazaa too. here's a sample of the soundtrack @ towerrecords.com. and if you're into the music that much...go to stlyrics.com in order to get the sheet music & lyrics to the songs!
this film was quite entertaining to say the least!
