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.
Madonna (specifically for Velma Kelly), Goldie Hawn, Kathy Bates, Rosie O'Donnell, Nicole Kidman, Gwyneth Paltrow, Kristin Chenoweth (for Roxie Hart or Mary Sunshine), Cameron Diaz, Whoopi Goldberg (for Mama Morton) and Britney Spears (by Harvey Weinstein for Kitty Baxter), Toni Collette, Winona Ryder, and Marisa Tomei were all considered for roles in the movie.
You're a free woman, Roxie Hart. And God save Illinois.
When Velma Kelly "can't buy that kind of publicity," she pulls out a modern $1 dollar bill, which wasn't used in 1929.
Near the end of the credits, just so there are no doubts: Catherine Zeta-Jones' singing and dancing performed by Catherine Zeta-Jones Renée Zellweger's singing and dancing performed by Renée Zellweger Richard Gere's singing and dancing performed by Richard Gere
