July 25, 2003
May be the worst film I have ever seen with an actress I have previously adored: in this case, Reese Witherspoon.
July 14, 2003
[Witherspoon's] so charming.
July 8, 2003
This is Witherspoon's movie and hers alone.
July 8, 2003
Legally Blonde 2 is Elle Woods' eulogy.
July 5, 2003
A cinematic abomination.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
July 3, 2003
Witherspoon's indefatigable charm and energy is the only reason this film doesn't disappear like cotton candy in a drizzle.

There's not enough here to sustain a half-hour sitcom, but Reese Witherspoon shoulders the burden with star shine to spare.

July 2, 2003
Flops where it should zing, trotting out cringe-worthy cliches and hoary plot contrivances.
July 2, 2003
The first one was silly fun, amusing and oddly inventive; the second is plodding, unfunny and almost cringe-worthy.

While straight, male audiences probably won't find this movie interesting or funny, for women it could be an important, inspiring and empowering pop cultural experience.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5
July 2, 2003
Without Witherspoon, there'd be no reason to watch this movie, but she sashays through it all with her tip-tap walk and sparkly smile.

July 2, 2003
Legally Blonde was content to tickle you. The new one is something akin to a band that has a surprisingly successful debut deciding to rerecord all their originals and release a 'Greatest Hits' collection for their second CD.
July 2, 2003
Legally Blonde 2: Red, White and Blonde takes the financially successful formula of Legally Blonde, the Reese Witherspoon hit from two years ago, and does something unexpected. It fiddles with it, changes it and actually fixes it.

July 2, 2003
This sequel to the surprise hit is as resistible as a filibuster, as frustrating as a puff of cotton candy that dissolves too quickly on the tongue.

If Legally Blonde 2 were a legislative bill, it'd never make it out of committee.

July 2, 2003
A self-serious streak turns the sequel a bit ... brunette.
July 2, 2003
It's so gosh-darned darling it almost turns your stomach.

It's like being strapped down and forced to read back issues of Lucky magazine.

Despite its familiarity, Blonde 2 doesn't make you want to pull out your hair by its roots.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
July 2, 2003
Legally Blonde 2 is both more and less of the same.
July 2, 2003
Although some good laughs are to be had in Blonde 2, there's really very little tying them together.

July 2, 2003
While Legally Blonde 2 is bearable in a way that busier and more ambitious unfunny recent comedies like Hollywood Homicide and Alex and Emma are not, it has almost none of the ditsy charm of the original.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
July 2, 2003
The first Reese Witherspoon vehicle was a surprise smash hit, and the second is a surprisingly smashing train wreck.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
July 2, 2003
The movie's vision of Congress is hopelessly simplistic and idealistic.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
July 2, 2003
The movie has a brain.

July 1, 2003
Much like she saved Sweet Home Alabama, [Witherspoon] uses her inexhaustible charm and comedic timing to keep this underpowered sequel from sinking into the doldrums.

July 1, 2003
Legally Blonde 2 knows what it's doing and takes no risks. Like its titular character, the movie is brightly polished, well-manicured and well-heeled.
Full Review | Original Score: B-
July 1, 2003
Legally Blonde 2 is a movie of many stupid pet tricks and one basic joke.
July 1, 2003
Though the stretch marks are obvious, LB2 does manage to milk additional laughs from a fish-out-of-water premise that dates to Loretta Young's Oscar-winning performance in The Farmer's Daughter.

Some very funny moments, but sequel to the 2001 comedy is mostly an uninspired exercise in recycling.

This time around it feels like pink is last year's black.

As she did in the first movie, Witherspoon deftly navigates the precipice where silliness slips into stupidity.

July 1, 2003
Legally Blonde 2 moves at such a brisk, easy clip that there isn't much time to linger over its flaws.

Elle's blonde may have more fun, but the audience does not.

July 1, 2003
Once again, Reese Witherspoon, as the perky blonde in pink, triumphs over tissue-thin material, striding resplendently through lame gags and a disjointed plot.
July 1, 2003
This movie needs to be less winning, more satirical -- like the first.

The real D.C. should move this fast and be as intentionally funny.
