Legally Blonde

Posted by martinteller on July 4, 2003

Watched this in anticipation of the sequel (which I’ve now decided to avoid).  Yeah, there were funny moments (particularly those concerning Jennifer Coolidge as the manicurist) but I couldn’t help but feel this movie utterly failed at conveying its intended message.  Elle’s great triumphs in the courtroom are 1) knowing that a man is gay if he can recognize designer shoes and 2) knowing that you don’t shower after getting a perm.  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?   Rating: 5
