Singing live in the rehearsal hall while going through the strenuous motions of Marshall's choreography, Zeta-Jones is every inch the consummate performer and undeniable star.

The film is as dazzling and amusing as it is refreshing, a celebration of cynicism that is as deadly accurate as its format is artificial.

Best Picture Oscar-winner Chicago gets a no-frills package on this DVD edition. That said, the commentary track by Marshall and Condon is a must-listen.

Unlike Moulin Rouge, which had but a fraction of Chicago's musical numbers, Marshall's movie has an uncanny, near perfect balance of drama and dance, dialogue and song.

Even though [Chicago] really takes the cake in the theatrical arena, the DVD doesn't offer us much frosting.
