2001 US Robert Luketic
Ah, the story of Elle Woods: seeming West Coast bimbo turned East Coast student at Harvard law. It's a good, simple, "high" concept executed to within inches of the formula. Some of the gags ("bend and snap") are moronic and repeated, but humor's not all bad. It should make you laugh; you'll have a good time. Unfortunately, whatever credit goes to the screenwriter and Reese Witherspoon (and Bruce Thomas as "UPS Guy"!) does not go to the filmmakers. The film itself comes out dull, boring, and—dare I say it—blonde. Not up to par with, like, Clueless.
