Factual error: In the scene where Roxie is placed in the "paddy wagon" to be taken to Cook County Jail, the prosecutor refers to himself as District Attorney Harrison. However, the court system in Illinois doesn't have district attorneys; rather, they have state's attorneys. The original play by Maureen Watkins correctly calls him a state's attorney.
Ending / spoiler
Directed by: Rob Marshall
Starring: Richard Gere, John C. Reilly, Queen Latifah, Renée Zellweger, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Lucy Liu, Taye Diggs
Roxie is cleared (thanks to Billy Flynn), but no reporters cover her story because something more interesting came up. Velma is cleared of all charges too (thanks to Billy Flynn). Roxie tries to make it in showbiz but nobody cares about her anymore so she teams up with Velma, they have a sucessful routine together and they live happily ever after.
Billy Flynn: Now look, I don't like to blow my own horn. But believe me. If Jesus Christ lived in Chicago today and if he had $5,000 and he'd come to me, things would have turned out differently.
Trivia: Renée Zellweger, Catherine Zeta-Jones, and Richard Gere all did their own dancing and singing.
Question: What happened to the original poster with Roxy and Velma holding guns behind their backs? In all the more recent ones the guns are gone. Why?

Answer: I have both the DVD and the soundtrack. On the DVD cover they have the guns, however on the soundtrack cover, their arms look like they have been cut out of the picture along with the guns. Possibly somebody thought that it was a bad influence, since many young people enjoy the movie as well.
