Two of my favorite scenes are "When you're good to mama" played by Queen Latifah and the mesmerizing "Cellblock Tango".
My only complaint is the pacing, which could have been a tad less "galloping" for lack of a better word; which almost leaves you gasping for air.
Otherwise, the production values, choreography and stagings are superb.
I saw the 1996 revival which was fun and memorable, but I especially appreciated the often overlooked portrayal of "Mr. Cellophane" who I believe may have been played by Amos Hart; unfortunately I don't have the original Playbill to verify this.
It's about time they made a really good musical film.
Pros: This blu-ray is accompanied with several audio tracks. Blu-ray PCM 5.1 channel 24 bit, AAC Compressed Dolby Digital 16 bit, PCM 2.0 channel 24 bit, PCM 2.0 channel 16 bit .
Cons: About the only musical performed without interruptions, appears to be Cell Block Tango. This Blu-ray version (and likely DVD versions as well) do not include the musicals in their entirety without interruptions. The musical features included are a split view of their making and final performances with director and actor comments. With the availability of the PCM 5.1 24 bit audio streams, it would have been really nice to provide the musical performances so people would not have to also buy the CD soundtrack. Or, the CD/DVD soundtrack should have been included with the movie!
For people whom purchased the Blu-ray and you're computer literate, can likely extract the Cell Block Tango audio using the following after legally copying the relevant audio stream. In other words, 1380 is the start position and 18480 (start pos + t offset) is the ending position. (Otherwise if you're wanting the audio only musicals, will need to also buy the soundtrack CD.)

When dealing with music Blu-ray media, I usually extract all available stream types (ie. PCM 5.1, PCM 2.0 24 bit, PCM 2.0 16 bit, AAC/AC3/A52 Dolby/DTS) and divide each song into their individual tracks. I do this for all my music media, and reserve hunting for the original media for Movie DVD's and Blu-rays, with Blu-rays being optional as I have no choice but to convert them as I use Linux. (God how I dislike Blu-ray media and HDMI! But am pro copyright here as people have to make a living.)
Queen Latifah was hilarious as Mama Morton.
Taking all these facts into consideration, "Chicago" is outstanding film and hopefully brought this wonderful musical to many new fans across the world.
