Chicago: The Musical : Movie Review

Chicago is my kind of town -- and now it's my kind of movie musical.

While not perfect -- there is a major casting issue to grouse about later -- Chicago kicks up its heels, belts out its sexy, jazzy showtunes and emerges as an on-screen celebration.

Creating a great movie musical is no mean feat in this cynical era where Baz Luhrmann's sassy Moulin Rouge is one of the few to succeed big time in the new millennium.

Chicago is a brand new version of the 1975 Bob Fosse Broadway musical, which in turn was an adaptation of Maurine Dallas Watkins' The Brave Little Women, a wisecracking 1926 Broadway comedy and variety show.

See for full review.
