LEGALLY BLONDE (Theatrical Release USA 2001)


Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.2|5.0 Starsìììì

Legally Blonde—refreshingly new—gives the most delightful dip into the ‘power within’ to completely change one defined future for another and does it with such aplomb. No preaching, a great deal of exceptionally sweet comedy, and a lot of heart mark this film. Actress Reese Witherspoon gives her audience a study in ‘real’. She plays her part with honesty, complete believability, and generousness of heart. It’s a terrific movie that gives a great peek-a-boo into a life outside the norm while leaving respect in its wake. The movie could have so easily been relegated to ‘chick flick’ status and becomes everything but that.
