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.

The musical number "Class," featuring Queen Latifah and Catherine Zeta-Jones, was deleted from the final version of the film. However, it was recut into the movie for a brief, extremely limited theatrical re-release in the summer of 2003. It then appeared on DVD as a bonus feature, but was NOT intercut there. See more »
