PG-13 | | Comedy, Crime, Musical
Two death-row murderesses develop a fierce rivalry while competing for publicity, celebrity, and a sleazy lawyer's attention.
This film marks the second time Richard Gere has played a smarmy, fame-hungry attorney based in Chicago, Illinois. The first time was in Primal Fear (1996) as the Marty Vail.
If they string me up, well, I'll know who brought the twine. That scummy, crummy, dummy hubby of mine.
In the courtroom scene when Billy Flynn does his "tap dance" a mike is visible on the top center of the screen (usually dismissed as projection error, but multiple reports suggest otherwise).
There's no opening credits, save the title "CHICAGO".
