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

The movie's vision of Congress is hopelessly simplistic and idealistic.

A decent, but completely forgettable sequel.

In the first film, Witherspoon played innocent, naive and charming on the way to becoming America's newest sweetheart. This time, she just plays stupid.

If this were just another lazy sequel, that'd be bad enough, but Legally Blonde 2's dimwitted political "comedy" is bad in truly fascinating ways. ...

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

Once again, Reese Witherspoon, as the perky blonde in pink, triumphs over tissue-thin material, striding resplendently through lame gags and a disjointed plot.

With a few entertaining bits and the unstoppable force of Reese's charm, the film manages to pass by without causing any pain. But it is a weak comparison to its predecessor.

The writers and director can't craft a convincing plot and show little understanding of how Congress works; they have no idea where to take the characters, so they transform everyone into low-camp buffoons.

I don't think Reese Witherspoon's heavily marketed charm has worn thin it's just this particular character whose welcome has been blown out.

The first one was silly fun, amusing and oddly inventive; the second is plodding, unfunny and almost cringe-worthy.

Lacks any kind of competence.

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.

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

What is missing is the charm that Witherspoon brought to the character of Elle Woods. You couldn't help but like her in that first film but here, the character is simply unbearable.

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