Bend and Snap with this review of ‘Legally Blonde’

If you object to this review, you will be found guilty

There’s no denying that Reese Witherspoon is America’s sweetheart. With the thought of “Legally Blonde 3” in everyone mind, I thought it was time to review the most underrated movie of the early 2000s. That’s right, we are going to Havard Law School to reminisce about “Legally Blonde.”

Released in 2001, “Legally Blonde” stars Reese Witherspoon in the most iconic law student in the history of the world. The movie follows Elle Woods as she leaves behind her lavish California life to attend Harvard Law School to win back her snobby but hot boyfriend after he dumps her to find a “more serious” girl. Once she goes to Harvard, she begins her journey as she tries to win back the love of her life and 

This movie was extremely ahead of its time. While on the surface, it comes across very shallow and superficial, it’s actually a movie with a very powerful message. The movie features Elle Woods overcoming everyone doubting her based on how she looks, dresses, and acts. They underestimate her and what she can do. Elle Woods is an empowering female character in an era where there wasn’t really any. Then she tries to change herself to fit into what the people of Harvard think she should be. Elle quickly realizes that she just needs to be herself if she is going to succeed.

“Legally Blonde” is a very well done movie that still holds up today. It has aged well unlike some of the movies that came out during this time. It’s easily going to be a timeless classic. If you haven’t seen this movie, then you need to watch it. Just skip “Legally Blonde 2,” it’s not very good besides Reese Witherspoon’s performance. Don’t even bother with “Legally Blondes.” Like “Mean Girls 2,” we just won’t discuss it. Hopefully, “Legally Blonde 3” isn’t like the movies in-between.

Rating: 4 out of 5
