Legally BlondeDirector: Robert Luketic
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.

This movie is so funny. I am a blonde and I have to say this movies proves that not all blonds are dumd.( i'm not)I think this movie is great cause she is trying to prove that she is smart and she acts dumd doing it.
Ever since I first watched Legally Blonde, when I was 7 and pink was my favorite color, I thought about Elle Woods as a role model, she was literally everything I wanted to be as a adult - pretty, blonde, had a super cute small dog, used the best outfits (hey, I was 7!) and most of all, she was smart and determined to get what she wanted (even if it was a boyfriend). Years had passed but I still think that Elle Woods is a great character to look up too, she is there to show that pretty does come with brains, and with nice too! Of course that right now I realize that her initial motives were completely wrong (applying to a college and a curse you know nothing about/has no interest on just because of a boyfriend is totally a no, no for me), the drama on this one is over the top and the characters are somewhat ridiculous with the stereotypes (Warner really takes seriously his role as the ex-boyfriend dickhead), and the outfits don't tempt me anymore. But Reese Witherspoon performance turns this into a laugh out loud comedy, full of heart, making impossible for you to not cheer up for Elle and hope she finds her patch on Law School. Also the romance is so sweet, it doesn't get much screening time but it still manages to win your heart, because every talk Elle and Emmett have is so funny and cute you will probably be glad when she finally realizes what a looser Warner is.
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.
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.
i like this movie. it shows that blonds are smatter then other girls. reese wetherspoon is soooo awsome. she makes me proud to be who i am and makes me feel good about my self. her acting is reelly great. she shoud get a oscar award for this movie. im glad she is with jake gilenhall. he is sooo hot!
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!!!
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.
When I saw this movie come out I thought it was just going to be another boring movie but then I saw it on paper view it was now my favorite movie now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
legally blode is insatiable and witty beautifuly honest and recognizably graceful REESE is forever leaving me awstrucken and wanting more this movie alone had me going to tiffany's and wanting to touch the coveted HEART TAG TOGGLE NECKLACE and then renewing my subscription to cosmo TRUELY INSPIRATIONAL
The title fits this movie so well. It tells about what you can expect to find while watching the movie. As soon as I watched the movie I knew that it would be a movie that I could watch repetitvely without it getting old. I bought it the first day that it came out on video, and i watched it twice when it was in theater. In fact, I think that watched it 5 times the first day i bought it. It is a movie that, I think, almost the whole family can enjoy. This movie will never be left to gather dust on my shelf.
A great movie for teens,bubbly,cute,and sophisticated!Im looking forward to the sequel (LB2 red white and blonde!)Younger kids 5-10 may be a little too young to get it. :)
Reese Witherspoon was great and so was the cast.Some moments were just weird but overall it was enjoyable.Definetly a must see!
I thought that Legally Blonde is the best movie ever!! Its cast and crew are very good especially Reese Witherspoon, Selma Blair, Matthew Davis, Ali Larter and Jennifer Coolidge. The very first time I saw it I totally new that this was my favourite movie.
WOW I must have watched this movie 15 times I recemmond it to anyone but especially girls because this is definetly a chick-flick. If your looking for a good movie this is a great choice.
this movie is sooooooooo funny!!!!!!!!! it's a great movie to watch if your feeling like you want to watch a ditsy movie.
Legally Blonde became a blockbuster hit, because people had fun when they saw it. Before and after seeing it my opinion went from ''looks good'' to ''excellent.'' Reese Witherspoon as Elle Woods who prooved to the world that anything is possible regardless of how other perseive you. I recommend it for the clean humor, the storyline, and the charm that Reese brings with her to the screen. Buy it today
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).
This is a movie ''keeper'' if there ever was one! The plot reminds me of a more grown-up ''Clueless!'' Reese Witherspoon shines as an extroverted optimistic golden girl determined to make friends and regain her boyfriends's love in ultra-conservative Harvard University. Apart from an ocassional week moment the plot is very fluid with good continuity. It's a feel-good film if there ever was one!
Well first of all I love Reese Witherspoon! This movie was funny and cute and Reese did a awesome job defending Blondes everywhere! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT!
