Silly comic fluff with as much substance as a scented resume printed on pink paper. But this movie is deliciously funny.

With Witherspoon donning 40 different hairstyles for her role as the pouty and perky Elle, Legally Blonde is a ditsy and Day-Glo treat.

This is a modern day Capra movie, which means you might be embarrassed to tell your friends you went to see it, but you left the theater with a big smile on your face.

Witherspoon again skillfully plays against her looks. And, as the movie repeatedly points out, that's hard to do when you're blonde.

Se puede ver si se toma como la típica película dominguera para pasar un rato sentado en la oscuridad de una sala de cine, pero no ofrece nada más.

...Misses a plum opportunity to be the post-Marilyn blonde movie...

...a modern fairy-tale fantasy about clichéd images and, better, a film that never takes itself, its characters, or its messages too seriously.
