A cute fun musical about 2 murderesses who finally find fame for killing their lover/spouses.
A singing and dancing fun flick starring Catherine Zeta Jones(who won an Oscar for this role) and Rene Zellweger(blecchhh) as the 2 female leads and Richard Gere as the smarmy lawyer(and can’t really sing). Queen Latifah (Oscar nominated), Christine Baranski and John C. Reilly(Oscar Nominated) round out the cast. This film is based on the famous Broadway musical along with former films called Roxie Hart and Chicago which is based on a true story from the 1920s. Oh, this film won best Oscar..not sure it should have

PETER MARSHALL: You might have gone with Cannibal Girls for the win... but this could still work out. :)
Chicago is one musical that I have indeed watched. I even went to see it in a theater, can you believe? Mrs. Shady dragged me there because she loves musicals. I actually enjoyed the film. My favorite Richard Gere movies are An Officer and a Gentleman with Debra Winger and Unfaithful with Diane Lane.
Happy "C" day to you, dear friend Birgit!
This is one of the few movies where I have a DVD. And who cares if Richard can't sing as long as he makes you swoon.ReplyDelete
I've seen both the film and the play.ReplyDelete
This sounds so fun! I need to see itReplyDelete
I watched it quite a few years ago, I liked itReplyDelete
Mary liked it better than I did. Not to say I didn't like certain aspects of it (and I couldn't tell you what aspects those are, it's been too long), but there are some movies you just have to be in the mood to watch, and I wasn't when we saw it.ReplyDelete
I've only seen bits and parts of it, never really caught my attention.ReplyDelete
Another good choice :-)ReplyDelete
I enjoyed your post today. Sure Gere can’t sing but I found him humorous and very entertaining in this role. Visiting fromReplyDelete
If I Only Had A Time Machine
These dancing performers are a sure win in my book with those high heels and scantily clad, I'd be delighted to be one of their spouses meeting my end!ReplyDelete
We saw this, but it didn't make enough of an impression for me to remember much about it.ReplyDelete
Good film. Love the Cellblock Tango!ReplyDelete
Strange that Chicago did so well, but I don't even remember when it was out.ReplyDelete
Hope you're having fun with the A-Z thing, Birgit. Great start.
I thought it was okay. Richard Gere singing was like Clint Eastwood singing in Paint Your Wagon. lol I became a fan of John C. Reilly with this movie. What a voice!ReplyDelete
Oh I'd forgotten about that one.ReplyDelete
I'm pretty sure that I haven't seen this and yet somewhere in my head I feel like I have. Guess I need to watch it someday for the first time or maybe again.ReplyDelete
Tossing It Out
Would you believe I've neve watched Chicago? And I really think I should, though I have heard contrasting opinion about it (which is why I haven't watched it yet).ReplyDelete
One I actually have seen! Also the stage version, in New York.ReplyDelete
Another one I haven't seen, although I did act in an amateur production of the musical back in 1982 or so.ReplyDelete
I still haven't seen this. Maybe eventually...ReplyDelete
I've never heard of this flick, so it was a surprise to me. Sounds like a great choice, though.ReplyDelete
I really wanted to like this movie and the stage version, but, for some reason Chicago leaves me cold, whether recorded or live. I know many people who love it though :)ReplyDelete

Hi Birgit - I'm not sure I've seen it ... or only seen snippets - one day I must watch it through ... cheers HilaryReplyDelete
