A starry-eyed would-be star discovers just how far the notion that "there's no such thing as bad publicity" can go in this screen adaptation of the hit Broadway musical Chicago, originally directed and choreographed by Bob Fosse. In the mid-'20s, Roxie Hart (Renee Zellweger) is a small-time chorus dancer married to a well-meaning dunderhead named Amos (John C. Reilly). Roxie is having an affair on the side with Fred Casley (Dominic West), a smooth talker who insists he can make her a star. However, Fred strings Roxie along a bit too far for his own good, and when she realizes that his promises are empty, she becomes enraged and murders Fred in cold blood. Roxie soon finds herself behind bars alongside Velma Kelly (Catherine Zeta-Jones), a sexy vaudeville star who used to perform with her sister until Velma discovered that her sister had been sleeping with her husband. Velma shot them both dead, and, after scheming prison matron "Mama" Morton hooks Velma up with hotshot lawyer Billy Flynn (Richard Gere), Velma becomes the new Queen of the scandal sheets. Roxie is just shrewd enough to realize that her poor fortune could also bring her fame, so she convinces Amos to also hire Flynn. Soon Flynn is splashing Roxie's story -- or, more accurately, a highly melodramatic revision of Roxie's story -- all over the gutter press, and Roxy and Velma are soon battling neck-to-neck over who can win greater fame through the headlines. A project that had been moving from studio to studio since the musical opened on Broadway in 1973, Chicago also features guest appearances by Lucy Liu and Christine Baranski.

This movie blew me away. I thought it sounded interesting, but it's when you see it is when you believe it. Or in this case, when you hear it. But anyways, just the way it was written was fantastic and I give a huge two thumbs up to a moive whose songs you'll never forget...

Chicago cannot be explained in words. It is far too complicated a movie to be carfully spelled out in the articulate way words demand. So lets just take a whack at at least describing a small part of it. It was truly, a releif. Movie writers seem to have it in their heads that we wish to THINK at movies. Well, some people wish to think, but for those of us who are forced to think all day, movie's are supposed to spell out every last detail in an entertaining way. So what better way to solve a murder, then by singing the whole thing out!! Chicago was just fun. Nothing more, nothing less. The producers, the writers, the actors, EVERYONE seemed to be in sync in the single fact, that they were here, to entertain. Not to impress, not to puzzle, not even to thrill. They were here for the simple reason of making your day nicer. Of sticking a tune in your head so you sing it until your head explodes. THAT my friends, is the definition of movie. Somewhere along the line, we lost sight of that. Now, Chicago is here to bring us back to it. The actors were stunningly good, the dancing flawless, the singing...god (Richard Geare can SING! And he can sing REALLY WELL! I thought I had fallen asleep, and was dreaming when he started belting out that tune!) the singing should have, to me, been the envy of every single person in this country. Hands down, Chicago was the best movie of the year. All the style and grace of what the movies used to mean (In the days of Audrey, and Bing) with a little pazzazz of the 21st century, Chicago is the movie to see, and the city to be.

Not since Moulin Rouge has there been a cast of people who fit together so well to create a movie that you want to talk about for hours after you've seen it. The acting is good, Catherine Zeta-Jones has never had a better part. The dancing is masterful and the soundtrack is equally as entertaining. Queen Latifah was unbelievable, I thought she was going to bring it down a few stars, but she only added to it.

totally awesome! the character are wonderful and i love the songs and i think that the 'cell block tango' was one of the best scenes in the whole movie! a family can enjoy this movie, but, about 5 minutes of the movie might not be appropriate for little children. everyone should see this at least once in their life! i reccomend it to everyone and anyone!

Chicago's finally out. If you missed it in the theatre, get it on DVD! It is one of the greatest movies EVER, I promise. Once again, the name on everybody's lips is gonna be Roxie, or Velma, or Mr. Billy Flynn. Go get Chicago, and enjoy it like I have.

A girl, Roxie, wants to be a jazz singer so she goes out with this guy who can get her some conections. The guy lied so Roxie got mad and shot him. She goes to jail and meets Selma Kelly who is a famous jazz singer and is also in jail for murder. Billy is the smooth talking lawyer who has never lost a case even if he has to lie to get the case. ''Mama'' is the singing prison guard. This movie has great music and great acting.

It included everything you could want in an Oscar winning movie- murder, sex, music, and a great performance from Oscar winner Catherine Zeta-Jones. It's all that jazz and more.

Proves wrong those who said that the musical was a dead format and that no one would pay to see one. Hopefully more musicals will go into production as a result of the success of ''Chicago''.

this movie is sooooo overrated. this film did NOT i repeat DID NOT! deserve best picture. the movie came out with such a bang that it completely overwhelmed the oscars just like past films have. against its other nominated films for best picture this film comes in 4th. sure i enjoyed it and it was entertaining but i just hate the fact that the oscars were whiped again by this overrrated film. the oscars just had give it all to chicago because of the loss they gave to moulin rouge last year which by the way was better than this movie
