More Info:
  • David Ansen

    If this Popsicle of a movie melts long before it's over, the first half has more good laughs than all of “Sweethearts.”

  • Stephen Hunter

    Blondes may or may not have more fun, but in this one case, they certainly provide more fun.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Lisa Alspector

    In a perfect marriage of player and part, Reese Witherspoon is Elle Woods.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    A featherweight comedy balanced between silliness and charm.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Michael Wilmington

    Witherspoon goes further, pouring so much humor and pizzazz into Elle that she lifts up the whole movie.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    Smart screwball comedy that upends the stereotype of the airhead towhead.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Susan Wloszczyna

    Guilty of inciting a near-laugh riot thanks to an irresistible leading lady whose comic instincts are as impeccable as her manicure.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Sean Axmaker

    Imagine the sequel to "Clueless" reconceived as a peroxide "Paper Chase" and punched up with a valley girl version of "My Cousin Vinny" for the climax.

    Seattle Post-Intelligencer Full Review
  • Stephen Miller

    Witherspoon turns in yet another stellar, nuanced comic performance.

    TV Guide Full Review
  • Manohla Dargis

    With her ductile physicality and undeniable charm, Witherspoon remains acutely present even when everyone else -- director, writers and cast -- has checked out.

    L.A. Weekly Full Review
  • Kimberley Jones

    Somewhere in that chirpy half-pint frame dwell some meaty comic chops. Goldie Hawn may have found her successor.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Lisa Schwarzbaum

    She may be follically blond, but as an actor of distinction who's all of 25, Reese Witherspoon reveals interesting dark roots even as she plays golden girls.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Kim Morgan

    Alas, the movie just isn't bouncy, fresh or funny enough. It's just not blonde enough.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Jami Bernard

    Like all blond jokes, Legally Blonde is basically meanspirited, and that's when it's funniest.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Jay Carr

    There's always Witherspoon, swimming upstream and never letting it slow her down. Blindingly purposeful, she's a perky blond tornado. Marilyn Monroe would not only have cheered her on. She'd have learned something.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Michael Sragow

    A smart comedy about a smart blonde -- that would be a sensation. But a dumb comedy about a smart blonde turns out to be not bad.

    Baltimore Sun Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    Witherspoon's sophisticated-pixie brilliance practically makes the movie, and her easy, confident, curvaceous carriage doesn't hurt, either -- she's the thinking guy's cupcake, maybe because her mind is just as supple as her curves. Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    Witherspoon -- though miles from the keen satire of "Election" -- stays one sharp cookie even as her film crumbles.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    I half-admire its exquisite balancing act, squeezing laughs out of its leading lady's wardrobe, vocabulary, gestures, and cretinously oblivious Beverly Hills sense of entitlement, while simultaneously demonstrating her brilliance, sturdy ethics, and unflappable egalitarianism.

    Slate Full Review
  • Todd McCarthy

    The mildly engaging silliness of its premise is never transformed into something more substantial, and the attempt at a fine-tuned "Clueless"-like tone is only sputteringly achieved.

    Variety Full Review
  • David Sterritt

    Witherspoon fills the screen with bright-eyed bounce. The rest of the cast is as forgettable as the flimsy story.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Jonathan Foreman

    Merely a watery, poorly directed update of "Clueless."

    New York Post Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    Benefits enormously from smart casting across the board.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Jessica Winter

    A junk-food movie striving to be nutritious -- it's one of your racier Be Yourself after-school specials crossed with 'Who Moved My Cheese?" for Cosmo girls.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Kenneth Turan

    Guilty of squandering resources. Amusing as it goes about setting up its premise, in Witherspoon, the gifted veteran of "Election" and "Pleasantville," it has an actress willing to throw herself completely into the part to excellent effect.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Dana Stevens

    The character as written is incoherent, but Ms. Witherspoon has the reflexes to make Elle both appealing and ridiculous. It's funny -- in that slightly queasy, un-P.C. Doris Day kind of way.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Michael O'Sullivan

    Really nothing more than "Clueless" redux but without the edgy, knowing wit.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Andy Klein

    The muddiness of the basic concept and the thinness of its execution eventually defeat even Witherspoon's talents.

    New Times (L.A.) Full Review
  • Ed Epstein

    Thanks to Ms. Witherspoon's artful portrayal of a winning, if beachless, Gidget, I found Legally Blonde very enjoyable.
