Legally Blonde 2
Review (6.5/10)
(By Brendan Cullin)

In Legally Blonde 2, our blonde heroine, Elle Woods (Reese Witherspoon), packs her pink dresses and takes her perky attitude to Washington, D.C. to try to get congress to pass a bill prohibiting animal testing. On the surface, a very courageous act indeed. Until you realize that she is doing this because the mother of her pet Chihuahua, Bruiser, cannot attend Elle's wedding because she is being used by a cosmetic company for testing.

A comical premise to some, a ridiculous situation to others, Legally Blonde 2 must be taken with a grain of salt. It does a good job of not taking itself too seriously - there are homosexual dogs for Pete's sake! But it is not a movie for everyone. A heterosexual male who likes hockey, fast cars and fast women may not be a fan of the movie. I, myself, enjoy hockey. Don't like fast cars. The only fast women I know are the ones who dump my sorry ass very fast.

I thought the movie was okay. Pretty much a replay of the first movie with a bit more blonde in it and the usual happy ending. I laughed a few times. Really liked the idea of Elle and her fiancé Emmett (Luke Wilson - is this guy in every movie? - Legally Blonde, Charlie's Angels, Alex and Emma!) getting married at home base in Fenway Park in Boston - a true dream for any sports fan indeed. Thought too many parts of it were utterly ridiculous (inviting your dog's mother to the wedding?!?). I also could have lived without all the lawyers and politicians - too much law and politics can ruin any fun night.

It is pretty much a movie for teeny-boppers or really big fans of Reese Witherspoon or Bob Newhart. Witherspoon's strong screen presence makes this movie somewhat palatable but I must warn you - proceed with caution.
