PG-13 | | Comedy, Crime, Musical
Murderesses Velma Kelly and Roxie Hart find themselves on death row together and fight for the fame that will keep them from the gallows in 1920s Chicago.
Charlize Theron had initially secured the role of Roxie Hart while Nicholas Hytner was attached as director. When Hytner withdrew and Rob Marshall took over, Theron had to audition again and lost the lead to Renée Zellweger.
Are you sorry?
Roxie: Are you kidding?
Flynn is heard on Roxie's radio saying "This all took place on Lake Shore Drive?" Lake Shore Drive wasn't built until 1937 and wasn't even called Lake Shore Drive until 1946.
The title "CHICAGO" appears as a "C" in the middle of a zoom of Roxie's eye, then the rest of the letters light up around it.
