All Critics (162) | Top Critics (42)

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

[Witherspoon's] so charming.

Top Critic

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]

Groucho Reviews

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.

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!
