Chicago is the story of two murderesses (is there a word like that?) and their lawyer.
Move over Perry Mason and all those hi-tech John Grisham lawyers Billy Flynn is here. He’s more crooked than the crooks he defends, but you have to forgive him – he does it all for love. The $5000 he charged you is just incidental.
Plus points: Richard Gere, Queen Latifah, great story telling, nice dances.
Negative points: Catherine Zeta Jones, songs.
Comments: Richard Gere as Billy Flynn delivers yet another performance that leaves you wondering how Nicholas Cage and Russel Crowe can be given Oscars while he is left behind.
Recommendation: Watch it, if not for anything else because its a good story, told well and for Richard Gere.
