The screenplay ... is more a bunch of bromides, pronouncements and touchy-feely Dr. Phil-Oprah cliches randomly tossed together on sheets of paper.

It's said that Ms. Witherspoon was paid $15 million for this. And I think she needs to cut in those of us who slogged our way through this rehash of Legally Blonde because we had to.

This is Witherspoon's movie and hers alone.

In a summer of popcorn encores, Elle Wood seems a natural. It's just that film-goers will definitely recognize the pink sugar coating on this particular brand of corn.

A perfectly serviceable fusion of Clueless and Erin Brockovich.

This is lazy, cookie-cutter sequelizing at its most royally obnoxious.

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.

It's a dish-watered down version of the original.

A more appropriate title would be Legally Blonde 1.0: The Same Movie All Over Again, Except This Time We Forgot To Put Jokes In It.

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.

Herman-Wurmfeld hopes to stretch this one-joke premise and get as much mileage out of it as he can...this sugary Washington-based washout has all the warmth and wit of a prolonged presidential impeachment hearing.
