Essential viewing for all lovers of good movies with quirky humour
on 15 November 2007
This is a comedy-drama detailing the story of Elle Wood onetime fashion major student at University of California and her transformation from a `superficial blonde air-head' to a `brilliant Harvard law graduate'. All this having come about because her boyfriend, Warner Huntingdon the 3rd dumped her on getting admitted to Harvard Law. In pursuit of him she passed the SAT and got into Harvard Law only to find that he was now engaged to his old flame, another Law student called Vivian. When it became obvious that he will never consider her good enough for him, she had to go into self discovery mode to prove that she was as academically brilliant as the rest of them, if not better. This movie is laced with great comedy while telling a great story on self discovery, self believe and the power of true love. Elle also meets and falls in love with her knight in shining armour a character played to perfection by Luke Wilson. Reese Witherspoon gave a great performance as the blonde Californian beauty Elle Woods.
The sequel legally blonde 2 continues where the first left off, with the engagement of Elle to her knight in shining armour, her impending wedding and her bid to tame Washington and change the law on animal rights. You will love her passionate speech to the House in her bid to stop corrupt senators, and uphold the truth and justice the American way.
These are two great movies that are filled with comedy and humour but at the same time convey a depth of meaning on the journey of self discovery and finding oneself. You can't go wrong with these DVD pack.
