Review

Our Score
Reese Witherspoon returns as ditzy blonde socialite Elle Woods in this frothy but dumb sequel to the 2001 hit comedy. Having graduated from Harvard, the pink-clad cutie is now a rising young lawyer, intent on legally ending the animal experimentation that's keeping her beloved dog's mother locked up in a cosmetics lab. Fans of the original will love the rose-tinted confection that follows as our stilettoed heroine teeters off to Washington to lobby the politicians directly. Reprising her tenacious sorority girl role, Witherspoon is astonishingly authentic in the lead and it's to her credit that she pulls off such an airheaded turn with so much charm and grace. Without her, the film would be a mess - some of the scenes are toe-curlingly embarrassing, while the plotline and conclusion are beyond preposterous. Ultimately, there's fun to be had, but you'll need to disengage your brain to get the most out of this sugary romp.

Summary

The dizzy blonde heroine graduates as a qualified lawyer and heads straight for Washington, DC determined to persuade Congress to put a stop to the testing of cosmetics on animals - and swiftly proves her mettle in fighting adversity as well as red tape. Comedy sequel, starring Reese Witherspoon, Sally Field, Bob Newhart, Bruce McGill and Regina King.
