Movie Monday!!!

Today's post is a musical!!!!

I am a huge lover of music in movies. I LOVE a great soundtrack!! But what made this movie even better was the fact that the actors also sang every song and the songs were part of the movie, not just background noise!!

I remember when Chicago came the time, I honestly did not know anything about it. I had heard of it, kinda knew the era it was...but all I knew was that it was a Broadway show. But then one day I saw the video on VH1 for All That Jazz. Holy Crap!! I was COMPLETELY hooked and just had to see this movie.

Just amazing!! The songs and music...the theatrical performance numbers!! I loved the way the scenes flipped between real life (like inside the prison) to the fabulous stage performance that was going on inside their heads. The music in this movie is's one of my favorite movie soundtracks of all time, and All That Jazz is still my favorite on the album.

And the costumes. Wow!! I so want to have some reason to wear something like one of them some day!!! I came kinda close in my dance class a while back...a cute little costume with a fringe skirt!

Catherine Zeta Jones was unbelievable and though I'm not a huge Renee Zellweger fan, she was good. And Queen Latifah...LOVE her! Who knew Richard Gere could sing?

So, what are your thoughts on Chicago???


  1. I enjoyed Chicago. The musical was fantastic and the acting superb! :) Total agreement with you on this :)

  2. I've seen bits of chicago on cruise ships but never saw the play or movie. I need to do this. I think I would very much enjoy.

  3. You've almost convinced me. Maybe one day I'll break down and see a musical.

  4. I was just thinking about this movie over tyhe weekend. I really want to watch it again... and moulin rouge
