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.
In the beginning of the scene introducing Mama Morton to the new inmates, Roxie Hart had a brief conversation with a woman smoking a cigarette. That character was played by long-time Broadway actress Chita Rivera who portrayed Velma Kelly in the original 1975 ... ...
You're a free woman, Roxie Hart. And God save Illinois.
During the final scene, when Velma and Roxie are dancing, there is lipstick on Roxie's teeth, which disappears (far too quickly) between shots.
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.
