Moulin Rouge! Voted Best Film of the Decade

Nicole Kidman's still got it! Moulin Rouge!, the 2001 musical staring Nicole and Ewan McGregor has been named the best film of the decade! That's a huge honor!

150,000 movie fans voted on their favorite movie and Moulin Rouge! came out on top beating out popular films like The Dark Knight, Lord of the Rings, and Pirates of the Caribbean.

Helen Cowley - editor of DVD rental service LOVEFILM, who carried out the survey - said: “‘Moulin Rouge!’ can’t claim to be on the same scale as some of its epic counterparts.
