Sex & Nudity

  • During one song, three women explain that they murdered their husbands because the husbands were cheating on the women. One of the women mentions the names of the other people her husband was dating, and one of them is a man.
  • A man accompanies a woman home and they engage in intercourse. Very little is actually shown, most is implied.
  • Burlesque style sexual choreography in songs.
  • Most of the songs have burlesque (raunchy) lyrics, but these are non-explicit.
  • Costumes true to the genre are risqué.
  • A woman is seen in the background changing with no shirt on. Her bare back is shown but no nudity. It is implied that she bribed a man through this.

Violence & Gore

  • -A woman shoots a man and two women in a bedroom, the camera cuts away with every shot, but we later see the dead bodies with very little blood.
  • -Six different women talk about how they murdered their husbands and boyfriends. These include stabbings, shootings, and a poisoning. A woman sings in Hungarian (without subtitles) about a beheading. These are non-explicit descriptions but are acted out by the women.


  • The word shit, ass, goddamn, damn are used several times as are terms like floozy, whore, slut. Some moderate to strong sexual references scattered throughout.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • -Many characters smoke and drink, (sometimes to excess), just as one might expect in a movie set in the nightclub scene of the 1920s.
  • -Drugs are mentioned a couple of times.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The scene involving the ventriloquist dummies may frighten some audiences. This scene also has Roxie portrayed as a dummy. Her makeup and facial expressions may be considered frightening
  • The first murder and the execution can be intense and disturbing.
