Ally Wybrew (Empire Magazine) and Ali Plumb (BBC Radio 1) join Flixwatcher to review Ally’s choice Legally Blonde. Legally Blonde is a 2001 romantic comedy starring Reese Witherspoon as Elle Woods, the seemingly ‘dumb blonde’ who goes to Harvard to study law and impress her ex-boyfriend.

Legally Blonde could easily be awful, there is a LOT of pink and there is a Chihuahua called Bruiser, but the film’s message that you can be what you want to be with hard work and determination and the performance from Witherspoon makes it an enjoyable and surprising film.

 

There is great satisfaction to be had when she realises her ex-boyfriend is a complete douche bag and she is much better than him. Equally satisfying is Elle keeping her promise to the high profile client they are defending (a brilliant Ali Larter) and court triumph following her sexual harassment from her senior professor.

Scores

Legally Blonde has aged reasonably well, what Elle Woods might have to say in the forthcoming third installment coming in 2020 remains to be seen though. Scoring generously across all categories Legally Blonde’s overall total is 3.7
