Audience Reviews for Legally Blonde


Loved the ending. The rest of the movie seemed very corny but enjoyable at the same time. Does have few funny and embarrassing moments.

Super Reviewer

Reese is so cool. Barbie meets LA Law! Elle wants to marry Warner but gets dumped as he wants a serious girlfriend. He gets to Harvard and she is hot on his trail. Dog in tow.
