What a great little film. I rate this alongside other amiable comedies such as Liar Liar, 10 Things I Hate About You and Election as one of the most watchable, cliche-less, well acted and scripted comedies I have seen. It is not a classic film by any stretch of the imagination and it falls in the category of safe, formulaic comedies but it is certainly worth a watch, especially on video.
Reese Witherspoon is excellent, almost an antithesis of her character in Election, but playing the ditzy blonde par excellence, lending to her role so much heart that you really are won over by her despite the West Coast affectations that have marred so many teen comedies to date. This is NOT just another teen comedy. LB is a film that can be appreciated by anyone. It has little in the way of slapstick gags that made American Pie so accessible to younger teens and actually has a very clever (if formulaic) story with hundreds of little sub plots coming and going throughout. The relationship with her ex boyfriend's new fiancee is spot on, especially the way Elle endears herself to her by the end. The filibustering in the case she finally gets to defend is also inspired to a degree.
Yes, it is predictable and unbelievable but it does not pretend to be anything but an enjoyable hour and a half romp. All of the cast do superb jobs, the jokes are spot on (especially the catiness that exists between Elle and Veronica) and it actually makes you feel good, something that many, so-called, feel-good films do not. I will be buying it and watching it for a long time to come.
At last, amid all these many dire teen comedies comes a comedy that beats all the American Pies and Road Trips and Scary Movies that Hollywood can throw at us, hands down.

Enjoyable comedy drama with a serious message at it's heart. Elle Woods arrives at Harvard Law School with the intention of becoming serious enough to win back her ex. She is intelligent enough to get in, however her the first impression of her peers makes life difficult for Elle - until she realises she actually has an aptitude for law and everything starts to change. A brilliant, feel good film that never fails to cheer me up.

We all know the reutation that blondes have, and most of us have heard the jokes at some point, but i think that this film certainly puts all those to rest, and does in fact prove that blondes are not as dumb as some people might think.
Elle Wood is a happy, bubbly, fun-loving, not so dumb blonde who decides to study law at Harvard University in an attempt to win back her boyfriend who dumped her for somone more serious. At first she is given the cold shoulder by some of the snobby students for eing too dumb (and blonde) but with a burning passion to do well, she studies like mad and soon shows them a thing or two when she wins a murder trial.
Reese Witherspoon plays the sweet, fun-loving Elle, very well indeed and brings a chirpy light heartedness to the whole film which makes the audience warm to her immediately. Luke Wilson (the brother of Owen Wilson) plays Emmett Richmond the only person not to ingnore Elle when she arrives at Harvard. Selma Blair (who worked with Reece Witherspoon in 'Cruel Intentions') plays the very snobby new girlfriend of Warner, Vivian Kensington. Finally Matthew Davis plays the two faced bone head, Warner Huntington the third, who only wants a smart 'serious', and successful girl on his arm rather than one he loves. There are many more people in the film who were equally good in their roles, but i would be here all day.
As regards extras on this DVD, there are quite a few. Theres a featurette: The Hair That Ate Hollywood, a feature length audio commentry from the director Robert Luketic, several deleted scenes, and an original theatrical trailer. So theres plenty to keep the fans happy.
Although this film is of course about blondes and their intelligence, the thing that stuck me was that there was somthing much deeper.

i love this film, cant say how many times i have watched it. reese witherspoon is so great, the girliness is so utterly fabulous and yet the message is definitely a feminist one, this film will always be in my top 10 which is high praise indeed, never get bored with it, magic moments as when she gets her manicurists dog back for her by spouting fake legal jargon, is fantastic, and our plucky heroine wins the day most satisfactorily against the misogynists and doubters, aided by a legion of very tough women. if you have been tempted to write this off as a chick flick, dont!!!!!!its much better than that.

Now I'm a guy, so I should have hated this film. Except rather surprisingly (since every other bloke I know hates it, makes blonde jokes or goes into giggles at any mention of it) I found this to be quite a good film. Okay, it is also very clichéd, entirely predictable and fluffy as a poodle(and it's why I haven't given it 5 stars)... but what made this film good was that:
1)The dialogue is incredibly funny in places. And I know everyone's mentioned it, but Warner's one liner "I need to marry a Jackie and not a Marilyn" is just priceless, fantastic. Whoever wrote that bit of the script was a genius, :)
2)Reece Wetherspoon is ideally cast as Elle- incredibly blonde and daffy on the surface, yet driven, determined and actually quite sharp deep down. The kind of girl that you underestimate at your peril. And what is more, Elle is an inherently optimistic- and attractive- character- no matter what obstacles are in the way(sneering fellow students, sexist lecturers, a fashion major etc etc), her optimism and her spirit get her through. That's not bad going.
3)The film does make a very valid point about the nature of being a lawyer- that it is not necessarily what you know but how you apply it that is important. Okay, so her knowledge of fashion techniques used to win the day is entirely expected, but if you are able to use any sort of knowledge to win a big case then that is really quite a priceless asset- the kind of thing that makes a good lawyer.
Now do not even think I am taking this as a serious film, I am not. To be honest, I can see why more girls (particularly of the blonde variety, lol ) would like it than guys like me; as it is very fluffy, very sentimental in places and very much aimed at the female clientèle.
