“Legally Blonde” is legally entertaining. Although I had my reservations about a movie based on a meaningless stereotype, I was pleasantly surprised when this film turned out to be quite pleasant to watch.
The main character Elle, played by Reese Witherspoon (who is naturally blonde by the way) has everything going for her – popularity, rich parents, nice car, excellent grades and one very cute boyfriend – that is until he dumps her!
Warner, played by Matthew Davis, decides that Elle is not “serious” enough and a little too “blonde”. For fear that she may cramp his style, he dumps her just before he heads off to Harvard Law School to pursue a political future. I don’t know about dumb, but Elle’s definitely determined – determined enough to win back Warren’s heart.
She decides to enroll herself in Harvard Law School just to prove that she can be the woman Warren wants. Elle’s mission throughout the movie eventually takes a moral turn and an interesting life lesson evolves out of the whole story line, and it’s not just a lesson for blonde people either.
Some other characters of interest in this movie are Luke Wilson, Selma Blair, Jennifer Coolidge and Victor Garber. Raquel Welch also makes a cameo appearance. So if you’re in the mood for a light and carefree comedy that’s fun to watch, set a side a couple of hours and make it this one, as it offers blondes, beauty and brains too!
