I think it is admirable for a female to set up her own production company. As much as times have changed it is still very much an old boys club in Hollywood. You have to be a huge star like Reese Witherspoon as a woman to be taken seriously enough to be able to set up your own production company. Because of this pressure, it is doubly a disaster when the female head of a production company puts out a disaster of a film like this one.
Reese Witherspoon was the original Elle Woods in the surprise hit "Legally Blonde" and its mildly successful follow-up "Legally Blonde: Red, White and Blue". The whole image of the film series has suffered a huge blow due to the poor quality of this straight-to-video film.
Izzy (Becky Rosso – from television's The Suite Life of Zack and Cody) and Annie Woods (Milly Rosso – from television's The Suite Life of Zack and Cody) move from England to Southern California. The two sisters are going to be staying at Elle's mansion and will be attending private school. Once this gets out the two girls are ostracized from the cool kids group and have to hang out with the geeks and outsiders.
Their troubles get even worse when one sister is accused (as she has been framed) of stealing test answers, so it is up to the other one to defend her in student court.
They seem to not only share hair colour with their cousin Elle Woods, but also her fashion sense and confidence. The transition to their new school is made more difficult by Tiffany (Brittany Curran – The Uninvited, Akeelah and the Bee), who finds out the girls are not wealthy but simply middle class girls attending the school on scholarships.
The film series has now been redone along the lines of a teeny Disney channel television show. It is totally shallow however and obsessed with looks, clothes and money. Image is everything and what is on the inside does not seem to count at all. The characters are all uninteresting and the storyline is all things we've seen before.
Odd editing, low production values and a morally ambiguous story all equal a waste of time. Please don't make the mistake of wasting yours.
