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.
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.
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.
