Cast & Crew
[Witherspoon's] so charming.
This is Witherspoon's movie and hers alone.
There's not enough here to sustain a half-hour sitcom, but Reese Witherspoon shoulders the burden with star shine to spare.
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.
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.
The film is a glorified sitcom, but Witherspoon takes it to another enchanted level.
