"Chicago" without the music
7 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Interestingly enough, it has the same plot as "Chicago." A dame kills a Lothario who was getting a little too amorous with her, and her press agent has to spin the media and courts to get her off. A funny scene of a photographer shooting pictures of her holding a gun, and her desire to go into show business at the end to capitalize on the scandal would both be used in "Chicago" years later. Surprisingly funny, worth a rental, if you can find it; certainly worth catching on TMC. (There's also a 2003 French film called "Bon Voyage" which has a scene where a woman kills a man in her apartment, and calls her friend in the middle of the night to pick up the pieces.)
