Movie of the Year: 2002 – Chicago

Movie of the Year: 2002


Can Chicago sing, dance, shoot, and prance its way to our 2002 Movie of the Year?

This week our movie is 2002’s musical sensation, Chicago, a movie that has a little something for everyone. Whether your thing is sexy ladies, violent outbursts, or Richard Gere, Chicago has got you covered. But does it have enough about it that is 2002 enough to take down film’s greatest achievement? Oh brother do we get into it, as well as discussing if casting stars was a better idea than casting more experienced singers and dancers. We also discuss the staging of the musical numbers and whether the choices made worked for us, or worked us into a rage.

All that and we also construct a Rushmore of 2002 musical acts, and soft launch a new segment called Mikey Likes, where Mike talks about his personal favorite city-titled movies. All that and probably a few things I forgot, on this week’s Movie of the Year!

While Americans overwhelmingly support the right of an individual to make their own decisions about abortion, unfortunately, that right is no longer protected everywhere in the U.S.

The Supreme Court overturned Roe versus Wade on June 24th.

Abortion is a basic healthcare need for the millions of people who can become pregnant. Everyone should have the freedom to decide what’s best for themselves and their families, including when it comes to ending a pregnancy. This decision has dire consequences for individual health and safety, and could have harsh repercussions for other landmark decisions.

Restricting access to comprehensive reproductive care, including abortion, threatens the health and independence of all Americans. Even if you live in a state where abortion rights are upheld, access to safe medical procedures shouldn’t be determined by location, and it shouldn’t be the privilege of a small few.

You can help by donating to local abortion funds. To find out where to donate for each state, visit
