It’s Just A Noisy Hall Where There’s A Nightly Brawl…and All That Jazz!
Nightclub sensation Velma (Catherine Zeta-Jones) murders her philandering husband, and Chicago’s slickest lawyer, Billy Flynn (Richard Gere), is set to defend her. But when Roxie (Renée Zellweger) also winds up in prison, Billy takes on her case as well — turning her into a media circus of headlines. Neither woman will be outdone in their fight against each other and the public for fame and celebrity.

Did you know?
- In the beginning of the scene introducing Matron Mama Morton (Queen Latifah) to the new inmates, Roxie Hart (Renée Zellweger) has a brief conversation with a woman smoking a cigarette. That character is played by long-time Broadway actress Chita Rivera, who portrayed Velma Kelly in the original 1975 production of Chicago.
- Richard Gere took tap dancing lessons for three months. His tap dance scene was shot in half a day.
- John C. Reilly is such a clown enthusiast, he insisted on designing his own clown make-up for “Mister Cellophane”. It was also his idea to incorporate Amos’ application of the make-up during the number.
- Director Rob Marshall wanted Catherine Zeta-Jones to wear her naturally long hair in this movie, but she insisted on the short bob. She explained to People Magazine that she didn’t want her hair to fall over her face and give people a reason to doubt that she did all of the dancing herself.
