The Oscar winner takes a lethargic victory lap in a package that pales next to lavish treatments of musicals like "Moulin Rouge" or "Singin' in the Rain." The film packs razzle-dazzle, though, and the inclusion of deleted Queen Latifah-Catherine Zeta-Jones duet "Class" is worth a look.

Chicago: The Oscar winner takes a lethargic victory lap in a package that pales next to lavish treatments of musicals like “Moulin Rouge” or “Singin’ in the Rain.” The film packs razzle-dazzle, though, and the inclusion of deleted Queen Latifah-Catherine Zeta-Jones duet “Class” is worth a look.
