The stage show had more razzle dazzle!!,
Having watched both the movie and the stage show, I have to admit to liking the stageshow better. Of course, who couldn't be impressed by Mrs Douglas's (Catherine Zeta Jones) acrobatics or her allure, but I felt Rene Zellweger was slightly weak as Roxy Hart.
I was surprised that Richard Gere could even sing, but he put up a reasonable performance, I thought they may have given that role to John Travolta, but Gere was good enough.
All in all, it was a good cast, but the musical tended to lose its immediacy on film, although the musical numbers will always be first class.
