This is hanging case, and we're ready to go to in front of the jury tomorrow.
Roxie: Wha-Wha-What do you mean hanging?

When Velma and Roxie are dancing in the final scene and taking their bows, with their hands raised up they switch places. First it's Velma on the left and when they cut back it's Roxie on the right.
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.
