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.
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.
Assistant District Attorney Martin Harrison: Your Honor, I haven't even asked a question yet.
In Velma and Roxie's final dance number, Roxie changes her shoes. In the beginning, Roxie's shoes have only an ankle strap, and halfway through the number they suddenly develop a T-strap.
The end credits are written in Broadway lights.
