Delightful chick flick that holds up nearly two decades later.

I originally refused to watch this movie as I thought it was just fluff. Then I watched it and was more then pleasantly surprised. Reese Witherspoon gives a great performance. She is perfectly cast for the part. There are many funny dry scenes throughout the movie. The Harvard entry where a group is sitting on the lawn giving past history of achievements and degrees is priceless. It is a good-hearted and enjoyable movie to watch from start to finish. The movie flies by and actually gets better with age. Revisit this movie and you will find even more subtle minutes of mirth hidden throughout. Definitely a keeper.

This was author's Amanda Brown's highlight. Pity she's a one trick pony.
Her ego must have hurt that her fans preferred much changed movie version by scriptwriters than her meh novel.
Mindnumbingly over-the-top average movie haven't aged well.
I read her Family Trust novel and it should be filmed by Hallmark Pictures.
That's not a compliment with lack of chemistry, too much cliches, slick production & predictable plots!
I won't watch Legally Blonde two with same old over-the-top formula & safe subject.
Not totally surprised that Amanda Brown's third predictable cliched novel was optioned ,but never filmed.
I curious who wrote the Broadway play & if Amanda Brown a footnote.

Favourite movie-quote- "What!!?? You wanna break up with me 'cause my boobs are too big!!??"

Even before I sat down to watch Legally Blonde I had solemnly sworn to myself that I was going to hate this flick as far as the law would allow.

Yeah. What the heck did I care about some poor, little, rich girl and all her empty-headed, bubble-brained, bleached-blonde troubles? Nothing! Nothing, at all. That's what!

Well, as the story goes..........After just 5 minutes into viewing Legally Blonde my attitude completely changed. It was a movie-miracle! It really was!

In Legally Blonde - Elle Woods is a fighter. And Elle is a winner. And, yes, underneath the big boobs, the nice buns, and the blonde mane of hair, Elle has brains, too. She does. And she proves, without a doubt, that she knows how to use them, too. Lawyer, or not.

Believe me - With Legally Blonde it's definitely well within the law to laugh.

Harvard. Well she proved them
all wrong! Great movie.

For such a classic movie that everyone seems to know, I thought it would've been a lot funnier. But I did laugh more than a couple of times, and it was a good chick flick to watch on a lazy day :)

This movie was entertaining and interesting but not one of my favorite for this year. “Not too bad---good performance”. "I fast forwarded a lot but not all the way.”

Regardless of Legally Blonde being a bonafide chick-flick, I enjoyed this film, all the same.... With its nicely paced story, Legally Blonde follows the often amusing (sometimes not) adventures of the ever-flighty, but always up-to-date (and, yes, very resourceful), Miss-Fashion-Degree, herself, Elle Wood (played wonderfully by Reese Witherspoon).... Full of determination and high hopes, Elle (along with her pet chihuahua, Bruiser), journeys to the unbelievably awkward and foreign environment of Ivy League Scholars and preppy snobs at Harvard Law School... It's here that Elle is out to prove that she's got what it takes to become a successful lawyer.... As you'll soon find out, with Legally Blonde it's definitely within the law to laugh.
