Why Is Legally Blonde Called Legally Blonde

Roger Ebert gave it three stars out of four, saying the film was “impossible to refuse” and that “Witherspoon effortlessly animated this material with sunshine and sharp wit.” [37] Todd McCarthy of Variety said Witherspoon gave a “wonderful and winning” performance. “Witherspoon shines stars from every pore, not to mention her hair, and is once again proving to be an actress worthy of comparison to the greats of the golden age like Carole Lombard and Ginger Rogers.” Michael Wilmington of the Chicago Tribune also praised Witherspoon`s performance, saying that his “comic timing is perfect, his personality irresistible. But it`s his wit and immersion in the role that really permeates the whole film and makes it work. He added that Witherspoon “pours so much humor and spice into Elle that she lifts up the whole film.” [39] B. Ruby Rich of The Nation called it “the best teen girls` empowerment movie to come in ages.” [40] CNN`s Paul Clinton praised the film as “a brazen satire that preserves a message: believe in yourself and follow your dreams.” [41] Please let me know if I am missing anything here. Obviously, it`s called that because “legal” – she`s a lawyer and “blonde” – she`s blonde, but that`s supposed to be a pun on “legal blind”, right? But no one in the film is blind. It`s a play on words that only works one way and not the other. Amanda Brown published Legally Blonde in 2001, based on her real-life experiences as a blonde who attended Stanford Law School while obsessed with fashion and beauty, read Elle magazine, and frequently clashed with the personalities of her peers. [6] Witherspoon wore 40 different hairstyles in the film. [22] “Oh my God, it became known as `The hair that ate Hollywood,`” Luketic said.

It was all about hair. I have this obsession with flyaways. It annoyed Reese a bit because I always had hairdressers on my face. But most of the time, the research and testing on set went in the right color, because `blonde` is open to interpretation, I thought. A few years later, Witherspoon returned as Elle in Legally Blonde 2: Red, White & Blonde. The film is set primarily in Washington, D.C. and deals with political issues. Then, in 2009, we had a direct sequel to the cheap video called Legally Blondes. Withersoon, of course, didn`t return, featuring British twins Camilla and Rebecca Rosso. In April 2007, a critically acclaimed mixed musical adaptation premiered on Broadway,[60] starring Laura Bell Bundy as Elle, Christian Borle as Emmett, Orfeh as Paulette, Nikki Snelson as Brooke, Richard H.

Blake as Warner, Kate Shindle as Vivienne, and Michael Rupert as Callahan.[61] which lasted until October 19, 2008. The series, Bundy, Borle and Orfeh have all been nominated for Tony Awards. Later, the Broadway show was the subject of an MTV reality series called Legally Blonde: The Musical – The Search for Elle Woods, in which the winner would play the role of Elle on Broadway.[62] Bailey Hanks of Anderson, South Carolina, won the competition. [63] The University of Southern California and Stanford refused to allow the producers to use their academic names in the film. [23] “[The film`s producers] asked if they could play the film at USC, but photos of her as a student and in sisterhood. We felt like there were too many stereotypes,” says Elijah May, the film`s on-campus coordinator at USC. The production decided that Elle would go to a fictional college called CULA. [23] Stone said Woods did not have the authority to act as a lawyer when she represented Paulette Bonafonté for custody of her ex-husband`s dog, calling her behavior a “major ethical breach.” “She didn`t get a law degree, she never passed the bar, and she has absolutely no right to call herself a lawyer,” Stone noted.

“This is called the unlawful exercise of the law. If someone finds out that she has committed this. While at Harvard Law School, she would likely be barred from being admitted to the bar in virtually every state in the United States. [45] Illegal exercise of law in Massachusetts is punishable by a fine of $100 or imprisonment for up to six months. The film originally ended at the courthouse, just after Woods won the case, with Elle on the steps of the courthouse sharing a kiss of victory with Emmett, then cutting a year into the future to see her with a now-blonde Vivian form their own blonde legal defense club at law school.[47] After the test audience revealed that they didn`t like the ending, McCullah Lutz and Smith consulted Luketic, Platt and other members of the production team while they were still in the lobby of the theater, and they agreed that a new conclusion was needed. “It was just a weak ending,” said screenwriter McCullah Lutz. “The kiss didn`t feel right to me because it`s not a romantic comedy – it wasn`t about their relationship. So the test viewers said, “We want to see what happens – we want her to succeed.” That`s why we rewrote for graduation. Ubach and Jessica Cauffiel claim that the original ending also included Elle and Vivian drinking margaritas in Hawaii, implying that they were either best friends now or in love, although Smith and McCullah never wrote such an ending.[31] Other suggested endings for the film included a musical number in which She, the judge, the jury and everyone in the courthouse sang and danced. [13] I always thought it was blond as stupid and legally just something to emphasize it somehow. The fact that she is a lawyer is a much better explanation than I expected.

But as I said (probably obviously) I don`t really know the movie, the title alone is enough for me to think it`s not a movie for me, haha. Legally Blonde is a 2001 American drama film directed by Robert Luketic. It stars Reese Witherspoon, Luke Wilson, Selma Blair, Matthew Davis, Victor Garber and Jennifer Coolidge. The story follows Elle Woods (Witherspoon), a sister who tries to win back her ex-boyfriend Warner Huntington III (Davis) by earning a Juris Doctor degree from Harvard Law School, overcoming stereotypes against blondes, and triumphing as a successful lawyer. However, she told Entertainment Tonight in 2015 that she turned down the role because she wasn`t sure she wanted to play another stereotypical blonde character like her role in Fox`s “Married With Children.” The joke is that being blonde (i.e. stupid) is a handicap like being blind. Two years later, Elle, who graduated magna laude, is the class`s elected speaker at the ceremony and has been invited to one of Boston`s top law firms; Vivian is now Elle`s best friend and has called off her engagement to Warner, who graduated without honor, without a girlfriend and without job offers. Paulette has married her delivery man and expects a little girl to bear the name of Elle. and eventually Emmett started his own practice, is now Elle`s boyfriend and will propose to her that night. Some scenes deleted from the special DVD include a report that Chutney Hayworth committed suicide in prison on the morning of Elle`s graduation. At the same penitentiary, Enrique is serving time for his false testimony in the trial of Brook Taylor Windham with his new cellmate, Professor Callahan, who was sentenced to prison for raping a student/intern.
