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.

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

This is a movie that on face value looks like it's for the teen girl crowd, but it's something that the dads and moms are going to enjoy seeing with them, and the grandparents will get a kick out of it, too.

An unsurprisingly lighthearted but surprisingly buoyant sequel, what most recommends LB2 is its comic indefatigability and, of course, its star, who is so clearly the most talented, vibrant and bankable leading lady of her generation.

The D.C. setting did compel writer Kate Kondell to have the movie champion a cause, which is that Americans need to be more involved in politics or that everyone should embrace their individuality, or something.

Legally Blonde 2: Red White and Blonde does what all good sequels should do: it sticks with the same formula, but adds fresh elements.

While Legally Blonde 2 falls short of its predecessor, it is by no means a lackluster entertainment.

Witherspoon, positively gleaming with star assurance, makes her indefatigably perky and optimistic Elle a classic screen comedy turn.

Elle tries to win over D.C. and paint the town-you guessed it-red, white, and blonde.
