LEGALLY BLONDE 2: RED, WHITE & BLONDE
GO!, Friday, 9.30pm, PG ( 2003)
After giving the stuffed shirts of Harvard a tinge of hot pink, one- time LA sorority girl Elle Woods ( Walk the Line’s Reese Witherspoon, pictured, hardly earning her considerable pay cheque) is back to see how far a good heart and an impeccable knowledge of fashion merchandising can take her in Washington, DC. While the original was sprightly, this flat sequel struggles to generate even a snigger as it details Elle’s quest to pass a bill outlawing animal testing. Even old pros such as Sally Field and Bob Newhart can’t do much to enliven this cash- in follow- up.
