Great offbeat fun!
5 February 2003 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

It you like movies that can be viewed several times this is the movie for you. "Love And Action In Chicago" gives the viewer something to think about it doesn't insult the viewers intelligence. This film is quirky kind of like "Curb your enthusiasm" either you love it or you hate it but there definitely is something for you to sink your teeth in.
