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.
Rob Marshall had previously been hired by the producers to direct The Wonderful World of Disney: Annie (1999); he had not wanted to direct that earlier film, preferring only to do choreography, but was persuaded to do both. That film's success resulted in his getting the job to direct Chicago (2002).
As you know my paper is dry. Do you have any advice for girls who choose to avoid a life of jazz, and drink?
When Velma and Roxie are dancing in the final scene, they come out with the guns, and start dancing with them. They put the guns down on the stage and walk away to do a cartwheel. In the shot of their actual cartwheels, the guns are suddenly placed in a stand. But when they pick them up, the stands have disappeared.
The end credits are written in Broadway lights.
