Chicago is directed by Rob Marshall, and it stars Renee Zellweger, Catherine Zeta Jones, and Richard Gere in a musical criminal comedy about a desperate girl that wants to be in the spotlight, but the guy that she thinks will help, turns out was lying to her, and that made her mad enough to kill him, and she goes to jail with the other girls where they wait for a lawyer that'll help get them out of jail for special occasions. In terms of careers, this is still one of the highest well liked films from director Rob Marshall, which makes sense as the film is written by Bill Condon who did Dreamgirls, Kinsey, Gods and Monsters, and some more that critics and people enjoy, well besides the final two Twilight films, but it could've happen for any director. While it wasn't as great as I remember it, I still thought Chicago is a solid film. The acting is really good, although it is Richard Gere who is stealing the show because he's having the most fun out of what he does for his character and you can just tell that his character loves his job. The dance scenes are great to watch when it transitions from reality to the musical stage, which is done very well that doesn't feel distracting. The characters are decent at best, but I think I wanted a bit more of them, but you had to take away some of the elements that were in the musical for cinematic purposes, so I understand why they did that, and the movie does flow very well in the story of it. There were some chuckles that I got, but it wasn't really as funny as people say it is, and from my opinion only, I found the songs to be unmemorable, not that the songs are bad, I mean He Had it Coming is the only song that I enjoyed and is the best part of the film, it's just I find the songs to be all right, not something that I listen to. It has some smart moments that were unexpected to me, and the writing by Bill Condon is pretty good at understanding the source material. Chicago is a really good movie that while it's not one of my favorite musicals, I still like what was of this movie.
