Movie Monday: Legally Blonde

After doing a full audit of my DVD collection last week (354 titles, in case you're wondering), I started making a list of all the movies I want to cover for Movie Monday, and this one topped the list. Because it had been FOREVER since I saw this movie, and I'm not quite sure how I let it go so long. 

Reasons why Legally Blonde is awesome:
1. Reese Witherspoon. She's BRILLIANT.
2. It's like Clueless, the next generation. You know?
3. The bend and snap.
4. Luke Wilson. Adorkable.
5. Video admissions essays of hilarity.
6. Jennifer Coolidge. Actual best.
7. The soundtrack.
8. Selma Blair.
9. Wingmanning for David.
10. Working out that the poolboy is gay because he knows that her shoes are last season.
11. Victor Garber. This may just be because I've been rewatching Alias over the last few months, but he's great in a really sleazy way.
12. Super douchey boyfriends getting their comeuppances.
13. Bruiser.
14. Ali Larter.
15. Confessions through hair care knowledge.
16. Elle being class appointed speaker at graduation.
17. Professor Stromwell. She's basically McGonagall, although perhaps a little less polite...
18. There's a musical of it. 
19. The costumes.

Plus, the following quotes:
- "Law school is for people who are boring, and ugly, and serious."
- "She was in a Ricky Martin video."
- "Whoever said orange was the new pink was seriously disturbed."
- "YOU got into Harvard Law?" "What, like it's hard?"
- "I'm sorry, I just hallucinated. WHAT??"
- "Oh, I like your outfit too. Except that when I dress up as a frigid bitch, I try not to look so constipated."
- "You think she just woke up one morning and thought 'I think I'll go to law school today!'??"
- "Exercise gives you endorphins. Endorphins make you happy. Happy people don't just shoot their husbands, they just don't!"
- "I can't believe you just called me a butthead. Nobody's called me a butthead since about the ninth grade." "Maybe not to your face..."
- "Because I'm not a Vanderbilt, suddenly I'm white trash? I grew up in Bel Air, Warner. Across the street from Aaron Spelling. I think most people would agree that's a lot better than some stinky old Vanderbilt."
- "Did you take Mrs. Wyndham on a date?" "Yes." "Where?" "A restaurant in Concord where no one could recognise us." "How long have you been sleeping with Mrs. Wyndham?" "Three months." "And your boyfriend's name is?" "Chuck."
- "So what's this Vivian got that you don't have? Three tits?"

So. The musical is currently on in Melbourne. Who wants to come with??

  1. I LOVE THIS MOVIE. I haven't seen it in forever, and I still have to see the musical. (Too bad I'm not in Australia...) It's hilarious, but in a weird way it's all girl power too. Also - Bandit is my version of Bruiser.

  2. Ahhh, the bend and snap - my girl friends and I would giggle all the time as we bent and snapped through our high schools halls (not one boy every noticed. BTDubs).

  3. Haha, love this film! It's a guilty pleasure of mine, plus I'm blonde so I can relate to it ;)


Leave me a comment and I'll love you forever (except for spambots...)
