Chicago
2003
Roxie hungers for stardom but ends up in the slammer, where superstar Velma is doing time for shooting her cheating husband. When Velma's lawyer makes Roxie a tabloid sensation, he sets up a musical catfight between the all-too-willing rivals.

Scott Hardie: “It ruled.”

I'm a sucker for spectacle, and this 'Moulin Rouge!' successor has it. Marshall, a choreographer making his first film, updates the elements of the classic musical with flashy camera moves and editing that help (not hinder) the show, and effectively buries the musical numbers more within Roxie's mind. The five leads are all great in their big numbers, especially Catherine Zeta-Jones, who was born to tear up a stage, and John C. Reilly, who's starting to get typecast as the sad-sack husband because he's so good.
