May be the worst film I have ever seen with an actress I have previously adored: in this case, Reese Witherspoon.

Witherspoon's indefatigable charm and energy is the only reason this film doesn't disappear like cotton candy in a drizzle.

A pointless, tired, sugary, pink and teal affront to Reese Witherspoon, Bob Newhart, any important political cause...Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, and—oh, let's just say it—humanity. [Blu-ray]

Not as good as the first, but still enjoyable.

Common Sense Media

This is just embarrassing, a simply and utterly embarrassing attempt to market money from a charming film.

Cinema Crazed

The expression of horror and amazement upon Bob Newhart's face captures, in one split second, the essence of the entire film.

September 20, 2004
Tyler Morning Telegraph (Texas)

Legally Blonde II is even smarter than Election. It is a brutal satire of the pop politics with which the Rock the Vote generation deludes itself.

'This rehash is a prime example of terminal sequel-itis ...'

Full Review… | January 31, 2004
Atlantic City Weekly

No original, Whiterspoon realizou a proeza de converter uma personagem irritante em uma figura carismática. Mas, desta vez, não houve como evitar: Elle Woods é mesmo um porre.

...the film takes the low road, going for easy laughs at easy targets and easy issues.

. Plays like one long blonde joke we've already heard.

Elle's still cute, but this 'Blonde is way dumber than the first.

Movie Boeuf

There is exactly one joke in this movie: Reese Witherspoon wears a lot of pink.

Full Review… | July 24, 2003
Film Snobs

Red, White and Blonde is a witty supplement to Elle Woods' campaign to promote blonde politics, this time more cartoonishly confident, more flamboyant and more self-aware of its own stupidity

Full Review… | July 16, 2003

A dull, lacklustre, obnoxiously stupid sequel.

I've got a joke for you. How many blondes does it take to make a sequel? I'll let you write your own punchline because no matter what you come up with it's likely to be funnier than Legally Blonde 2.

The first film grew on you; this one pushes you away.

Mark Reviews Movies

By upping the goofiness factor and wedging in a 'meaningful' message ham-handedly, the filmmakers have neither made a really funny movie, nor one that delivers a message well.

Witherspoon is just as good as ever, but Kate Kondell's script keeps letting the actress down.

Audience Reviews for Legally Blonde 2 - Red, White & Blonde

½

Okay, take an breath: anybody hear of satire? When you peel away the pink and five-inch heels (and maybe you have to have special movie glasses to do that), you are left with a very biting take on the political system. That the congresswoman is trading away her ideals so she can "stay in Washington" to do some good is very sly. So is Elle Wood's response "You're not doing anybody any good." It was good to see this after a particularly nasty presidential election, heading into some serious horse trading on the budget. Great message: maybe the way to get things done is not the "Washington Way" but the Delta Nu way--call your friends and take a trip to the corridors of power.

I have left my original rating of 3 stars intact. It doesn't really deserve it, as sequels go, it is pretty horrible. I think really it's a 2, but I am leaving the extra star for Reese - she is really good as this character, even though at times in this one, she comes across like a moron.
There is also some questionable bits in here, such as the revelation that Bruiser is gay. The "as long as he's happy" bit seemed forced and like this movie was trying too hard. Other bits are just plain awful (cheerleading dog song scene anyone?). Paulette is less likeable her than in the first one, actually kind of irritating, as are Elle's girlfriends. Don't know, pretty much inferior in every way and a silly plot, but just can't hate it too much.

Not as good as the first film but still really funny and Reese Witherspoon is perfect as Elle. A must see!

Okay so maybe Just Like Heaven isn't my guilty pleasure as much as this one is. Like I actually paid for this in the theater, watched it three more times on television, own the DVD, think about it from time to time. Oh my god it's soooo bad but in a really fun way. More fun than the first one, I think.
