Summary:
Elle Woods, the blonde, energetic, pink-loving Harvard law school grad, is now a rising young lawyer at a great firm, balancing a demanding a career with preparations for her wedding to the man of her dreams. Hoping to invite Bruiser's mom, she find out she is being used as a cosmetic test subject by one of her firm's own clients. After a conflict about legal priorities, Elle is devastated after being fired. Ms. Woods goes to Washington to take matters into her own French-manicured hands by learning the political ropes, winning over politicians, in a sea of grey, black, and navy. Capitol Barbie finds her share of friends and foes in D.C. ,but with her clever and sassy signature blend of intelligence and determination, she bucks the system the Elle Woods way.

Review:
Elle Woods (Reese Witherspoon) and her perky pink outfits return in a sequel based on the 2001 box office smash Legally Blonde. This time Ms. Woods goes to Washington to tackle animal cruelty, showing even the smallest causes are important ones. Let me begin this review by stating that the first Legally Blonde was a light-hearted comedic masterpiece which effectively tackled tough issues with a perky pink comedic flare. Elle Woods is such a likeable character it's hard to find constructive criticism that's validated. 

This sequel most importantly stays true to the fans of the first movie by utilizing the same charismatic spark from the first film. Reese Witherspoon does a brilliant job of portraying Elle Woods as an effervescent, clever, and energetic person while wooing audiences with her comedic savvy.

Another nice thing the movie does is tackle tough issues such as animal cruelty and the insider politics in Washington with a light (and polite) sense of humor. It neither bashes or praises government politics by giving the politicians human traits (wanting to get their hair done and their love for pets). More importantly, since this is a movie geared toward young women, is that it teaches young teens a little about our legal system and what it takes to pass a law along the way. Most movies geared toward young women and teens in general usually mock their intelligence such as the movies Clueless and Not Another Teen Movie. But, this film follows the same path as 10 Things I Hate About You by telling young teens its alright to be different and that it's cool to be clever and witty. Although adults might view this film as a waste of time due to the oblivious nature of Reese Witherspoon's character, younger audiences will absolutely fall in love with Elle Woods all over again.
