Elle Woods (Witherspoon) has it all. She's the president of her sorority, a Hawaiian Tropic girl, Miss June in her campus calendar, and, above all, a natural blonde. She dates the cutest fraternity boy on campus and wants nothing more than to be Mrs. Warner Huntington III. But, there's just one thing stopping Warner (Davis) from popping the question: Elle is TOO blonde. So, when Warner packs up for Harvard Law and reunites with an old sweetheart from prep school, Elle rallies all her resources and gets into Harvard, determined to win him back. (MGM)

I have a question about War Machine's review. Is the "and" in that sentence linking two individual words or two separate reactions to the film? Either way I had a similar experience.

Plays up a lot of stereotypes-ditzy blonde only being one of them-but at least to the central one it offers a unique "both/and" response too: You can be both boy-crazy and a Harvard student. You can wear pink and be a serious lawyer (see Elle's return to the courtroom). You can be smart and silly (see Elle's mature grad speech ending with a squealed "We did it!"). Witherspoon, Wilson, and Coolidge with her side-romance with the handsome postman are all charming in this fluffy but pleasant flick.

Yeah, there are funny moments (particularly those concerning Jennifer Coolidge) but I couldn't help but feel this movie utterly failed at conveying its intended message. Elle's great triumphs in the courtroom all involve her fashion knowledge. As far as legal matters are concerned, she's still a bumbling idiot. What happens when she gets a case that doesn't involve fashion at all?

God, this fucking movie pisses me off. I just wanna smack it. Reese Witherspoon grates as Elle Woods, and I want to punch anyone in the mouth who tells me that this movie is about "female empowerment". The only reason she goes to Harvard is because she wants to see her ex-boyfriend! What the fuck Elle Woods, just friend the motherfucker on MySpace.

A privileged, shallow and stupid girl weasels her way into law school so she can continue to get what she feels entitled to. What a horrible message.

Witherspoon's charming, slyly subversive performance is the blatant centerpiece of easygoing if ultimately insubstantial comedy, which rests on memories of Witherspoon's star persona (Elle is essentially a bimbo-fied Tracey Flick) rather than advancing it. It's something of a shame as Reese's excellent and empathetic work could have supported a more hard-edged project, but this still has merit as a blithely entertaining time-filler, with a strong supporting cast bringing a little extra class.

You know how Criticker has a "rank more films" thing? Well, I was going through that and I noticed this and the film directly below it, which happened to be Taxi Driver. I asked myself "why the fuck have you seen Legally Blonde, a genuinely shit film, and not Taxi Driver, a film often regarded as Scorsese's best effort starring one of the best actors of all time". Fuck, man, that's just not right. I'm going to buy Taxi Driver today.

Not exactly high brow or funny, or really believable - but this movie is charming nonetheless. It faults in the third act and falls into egregious clichés, but it's likable nonetheless.

A girl-power comedy that takes one very much by surprise, mainly thanks to the effortless charms of Reese Witherspoon, presenting a character who embraces her girly socialite ways while still proving to be much smarter and more capable and engaging than many other such characters in movies past and present. This is one girl you WILL root for.

Legalmente Loira estreava há 20 anos nos EUA. Adorei pelo seu potencial feminista quando vi no cinema há vinte anos, adorei quando revi agora. Recentemente soube que inicialmente a Elle Woods terminaria como par da Vivian, mas foi descartado, talvez as comédias não estivessem preparadas para isso em 2001, mas tenho certeza se gravado hoje seria esse mesmo o final. BlurayRip RARBG.

I suppose this movie has something for you if you're a chick or something, but... meh. I'm a guy, and I just didn't see anything that great from this film. In fact, the only reason I'm ranking it is because I've more or less seen all of it from it being overplayed on tv.

Pre-Oscar Reese Witherspoon in the film to send her career sailing, "Legally Blonde" is understandably loved by teen girls everywhere because Reese is perfect in the role of Elle Woods, and the movie is not without its share of laughs. Unfortunately it also stars Luke Wilson.

I'll give Reese Witherspoon credit for committing to this caricature 100% but her character is still a caricature and this is still only masquerading as a real film despite the moments where it seems to be self-aware.

As a person who has grown to hate modern fifth wave feminism, I think this movie is a triumph of the original feminist agenda. Our circumstances nor appearances dictate our worth or potential. Elle exemplifies the message. Her ditsy sweetness fools others (and even herself) into thinking that she isn’t smart or capable, but she proves the world wrong.

Legally Blonde is the type of movie that's fun in the moment, but completely worthless just moments later. The charm that Reese Witherspoon exudes throughout the proceedings absorbs you so fully that you forget the problems that it has -- for the time being, at least. Once it's over, you might start to dislike it more and more, but as it plays, it's a fun mixture of comedy and bubbly-ness. It's such a happy and innocent film that becomes even sillier under any inspection.

Like Goldie, Reese can carry these kinds of films with nothing more than her smile and cheery personality, and while the role seems to have been written for someone more of the blonde bombshell variety, we like Reese as Elle so much, anyone else would have been a big letdown.

I am convinced if you watch any movie at the right time in your life, you will really like it. So was the case with Legally Blonde. Even though it's a popcorn movie and not my type of movie at all, it is empowering for the youth, especially women. I watched it at the right time with the right company and it was fun. Only watch with friends and when bored.
