Director: Rob Marshall. With Renée Zellweger, Richard Gere, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Queen Latifah. (113 min.)
Dazzling visual cinematics, inspired period choreography and superb acting transport us to the Roaring '20s. Zellweger and Jones play two women who have landed themselves on death row by killing the ones that done them wrong. Friends at first, these desperate dames become rivals as they make reckless attempts to seduce the same money hungry lawyer. The music alone makes the whole thing worth while, and the actors put on a surprising show of gypsy prowess.
