Chicago (guest 2)

Movie:  Chicago

Guest :  Alpha Zebra

Nutshell:  Ambitious girl winds up in hot water over death of lover, takes full advantage of situation from behind bars.

Good Things:  Academy Award nominees Renee Zellweger and Queen Latifah, Academy Award winner Catherine Zeta-Jones, Rob Marshall’s brilliant adaptation of the musical, John C. Reilly singing Mr. Cellophane, music, costumes, choreography, dancing, art production, cinematography….

Bad Things:  None I can think of

Features:  Actors not known for musicals stepping up to the plate and knocking it out of the park

Uncomfortable Moments:  The girl I saw this movie with seething with envy over everything about the delicious dish that IS Renee Zellweger

Notable:  Queen Latifah stealing the show with her big number, then John C. Reilly stealing the show with “Mr. Cellophane”

Best Part:  Renee Z. playing mannequin on Richard Gere’s lap for the press -that is a difficult thing to pull off well, and the two of them were transcendent.

Best Line:  “When you’re strokin’ Mama…. MAMA’S strokin’ you!”

Crowns:  5 out of 5
