Legally Blonde

We watched a recording of Legally Blonde. We had seen it before and liked it, so I knew I would enjoy it. Seeing it again, however, reminded me of what an amazing tightrope, they managed to walk in this movie of a smart, but otherwise stereotypical sorority girl, going to Harvard Law School.

It is quite an achievement. My natural inclination would be to dislike, the main character, but I found myself rooting for her to succeed. The script, also manages to get some good laughs at the expense of people she forces to interact with someone that rarely enters their insular world. For example the admissions committee shocked by someone applying whose undergraduate degree is in fashion merchandizing.

As a lighthearted comedy, this movie succeeds very well. I recommend it to most everyone. On my scale of 1-100, I rate it an 86.
