The 25 Best Chicago Movies According to New List

Variety created a list of what they believe to be the most 25 essential Chicago movies. They say, "The main criterion for this list was that the films really use Chicago. Don’t just have a character mention the city and then film the movie on L.A. sets. And try not to have mountains in the background if you claim to be in the Midwest." Do you agree with this list? What do you think is missing?

Here is the list:

1. About Last Night (1986)

2. Adventures in Babysitting (1987)

3. Backdraft (1991)
