Opinion

From Library Staff

Set in the 1920's, this Jazz Age musical brings us the female criminals of Cook County, Chicago as they're about to be tried for murder.

Richard Gere, Renee Zellweger, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Taye Diggs, Dominic West, Queen Latifah, and John C. Reilly all sing and play their roles in this Best Picture Oscar winner from 2002.

One of my top two movie musicals of all time. It's the defining version of the production and rightly so.

Directed and choreographed by Rob Marshall in 2002 based on the stage-musical of the same name, this American musical crime dramedy seems to explore the themes of celebrity, scandal, and corruption in Chicago during the Jazz Age.
A supposedly rousing and energetic adaptation of the Broadway musical turns out to be a mangled dramedy so lacking in substance, if not a total flop.
What a pity with so many talented actors performing to a badly crafted script!

I like classic musicals, but this one missed the target for me. Perhaps better with a different cast.

GREAT 2002 musical romance plus film. Excellent acting by various performers - and terrific contemporary film making/choreography, etc. This rates way up there in the genre; glad to see it continue to evolve.

Sensational! Didn't even know Richard Gere could sing. Or Zeta-Jones. Zellweger is sensational!

I'm not usually a fan of musicals, but this one was great! Wonderful songs and fantastic choreography.
