Legally Blonde

The Western Star - - Life / Tv Guide -

Fri­day, go!, 8.15pm, PG (2001)

Reese Wither­spoon (pic­tured) is the whole show in this ami­able le­gal com­edy, her en­thu­si­asm help­ing you for­give a by-the-num­bers script. Af­ter be­ing dumped by her snobby boyfriend (Matthew Davis) for be­ing “too blonde”, Los An­ge­les soror­ity girl Elle (Wither­spoon) heads to Har­vard Law School in an ef­fort to woo him back – al­beit with the aid of a “Cop­pola-di­rected” ad­mis­sion video. A typ­i­cally stylish turn from Wither­spoon reg­is­ters high on the laugh-o-me­ter in this plucky re­venge-is-sweet com­edy from Aussie direc­tor Robert Luketic.
