Overview

Reese Witherspoon stars in this romantic comedy, the feature film debut of award-winning Australian director Robert Luketic. As a ravishing Miss Hawaiian Tropic, sorority president, and calendar girl, Elle Woods Witherspoon is a big hit on the campus of her sun-drenched Los Angeles college. She's also got the perfect boyfriend in Warner Huntington III Matthew Davis, a wealthy East Coast blue blood. Fearing that his snooty friends and family will never accept the bubble-headed Elle, however, Warner dumps her before heading off to graduate law school at Harvard University. Determined to win back her man, Elle enrolls in the same imposing institution, quickly becoming an object of scorn and ridicule, especially to Warner's old prep school flame Selma Blair. Despite her penchant for malls, makeup, and tanning, Elle is no dummy and is soon showing elite Ivy League snobs a thing or two about class, self-confidence, and courtroom victory.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Michael Hastings
Reese Witherspoon adds yet another plucky striver character to her resume with this mostly successful attempt to merge the superlative teen film Clueless (1995) with the fish-out-of-water courtroom farce My Cousin Vinny (1992). Legally Blonde has all the right elements for light entertainment: appropriately overzealous production design, an unflappable heroine played to giddy perfection, and a supporting cast that stays just south of over-the-top. And yet the comedy doesn't quite sing, in large part due to first-time feature director Robert Luketic's ineptitude with staging and shooting. For a movie obsessed with image, Blonde is poorly lit and clumsily framed: Luketic's deference to close-ups all but robs the film of Witherspoon's talent for physical comedy, and an extemporaneous, mid-film musical number fails to register. Still, as a showcase for its ebullient, never-condescending lead performer, Blonde shines, even if its young director doesn't show the same promise as his star.

    Fantasic!

    This movie goes to show that everyone can achive anything as long as they believe. This movie is about a soroity queen named Elle Woods who gets dumped by her boyfriend because he wants to be a lawyer and needs a more serious girlfriend. So Elle applies for Harvard Law School where Warner goes (her ex-boyfriend) that she can be the serious girlfriend he wants. Elle gets accepted and soon later gets chosen to be apart of a case. Warner is apart of the case too. Also in the case is a man Elle dosen't know but soon falls in love with. In the end Elle wait I will leave that to you to watch and figure out. This movie is Fanatastic and will make you want to watch it again and again.

    Legally Blonde

    At first I thought this movie was kinda stupid but surprisly after watching I thought it was alright and so changed my opinion about the movie. Its about Elle Woods who at first wants to be in the fashion department but after her so called bf dumps her and finds out that he wants a girl who's serious, she follows him and gets to law school to get him back but in the end finds out that she can become a good lawyer and finds a new bf.

    Amazing!

    Such a cute feel-good movie! A must for anyone looking for a few good laughs, and to shed a few tears. I loved it, but was a bit disappointed with the sequel! :( But Reese Witherspoon does an amazing job with this character. Despite the way she may appear in some parts of the movie, by the end of it, Elle Woods proves herself a strong and intellectual individual! Snaps for Elle!

    Light-Hearted Romantic Escapism

    This movie introduces you to a California, blonde, sorority sister (played by Reese Witherspoon) who both easily defeats ever obstacle put into her path and wins the audience. This movie is both fresher and has more shock 'cuteness' than the sequel, Legally Blonde II. It is a fable of outrageous fantasy that can bring a smile to the most dedicate begrudeon.

    A little bit of Elle

    I honestly enjoy the movie, but there were parts that were just to corny that should've been cut from the film-like the bend and snap scene. I like the underlying message that you can do anything you put your mind to even if you're blonde! I think there is a little bit of Elle Woods in every woman, that is, having beautiful looking hair, super fem clothing, a bubblely attitude and a rockin' manicure. And a part of me wishs I had the time and money to maintain my hair and buy clothes like Elle. But in reality, a women like her is never taken seriously or treated with real respect she deserves. All you can do (in my opinion) is pick and choose your battles.

    Go Reese!

    An excellent, heart-warming, feel-good movie, if ever there was one! Reese Witherspoon, as Elle Woods, is a care-free, fun-loving California beauty who proves that blondes not only have more fun, but they can be smart as well.

    Resse Witherspoon is undeniably cute!

    What can I say, gentlemen prefer blondes. Resse Witherspoon is exceptionally adorable in movie. The sequel, Legally Blonde 2: Red, White, and Blonde is being released July 2 (2003), so be sure to catch that too! Reportedly she's being paid $20 million for the sequel (whereas she only made $2 million for the original).

    Smart Blonde

    At first I didn't want to see it. Thinking that it was another movie where people talked about how dumb blondes were. Being a blonde myself I wasn't really into ''Dumb blonde'' movies. But when my friend forced me into seeing it, I found that I enjoyed it. Elle reached her goal cause she believed in herself.

    Reese is AWESOME!!

    Reese is my favorite actress. In every movie she just shines and makes the movie better than it would have ever been! In Legally Blonde- she really makes you see life the way she sees it. This movie is also refreshing to watch. Reese is portrayed as a normal girl who knows what she wants in life, and knows how to get it. She shows determination!! Legally Blonde IS worth viewing!!!
