Reviews
Mine: It is close to being great. The music and story are top notch and so current. Zeta-Jones it dynamite! Great enery and moves well. She also nails the role. Gere is even good. I have almost never liked a move he has been in, but here he is charming and sleazy and does a good job. The weekness here is Rene Zellwiger. The role of Roxy is a very difficult one and she is not up to the task. She has the desparate greedy grasping part of the role down well, but there should be another side to the character. Something that makes her appealing. Rene does not show us that in here portrayl. John C. Reilly does a great job as the happless husband. His musical number is subtly one of the best.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Murderesses Velma Kelly (a chanteuse and tease who killed her husband and sister after finding them in bed together) and Roxie Hart (who killed her boyfriend when she discovered he wasn't going to make her a star) find themselves on death row together and fight for the fame that will keep them from the gallows in 1920s Chicago.
