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.
The role of Billy Flynn was offered several times to John Travolta before eventually going to Richard Gere. This is the fourth film that Travolta has turned down and Gere accepted; the other three are: American Gigolo (1980), Days of Heaven (1978), and An Officer and a Gentleman (1982). Travolta has said that he deeply regrets declining the part.
...And Sophie Tucker will shit I know, to see her name get billed below... Roxie Hart.
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.
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
