Rated a Very Helpful Review
Pros:Reese looks pretty, a few laughs
The Bottom Line: That reminds me, I need to do my nails....
I have to confess - I do like some cheesy or off the wall or day long movies but Legally Blonde 2: Red, White and Blonde is by far the cheesiest movie I have EVER seen.

Legally Blonde 2: Red, White and Blonde starts out the way I like it. Fast and to the point. No need to dilly-dally, just tell me where we're going. In the midst of planning her wedding and invitees, Elle Woods (played by Reese Witherspoon) realizes that the mother of her dog - Bruiser - should be there. When the 'mother' is tracked down, Elle Woods discovers that she is a dog used for make-up testing. After being fired for suggesting that the law firm she works for take a stand on the animal testing issue Elle decides to get a job in Washington so that she can fight animal testing. Having only 3 months to her wedding day makes this a time issue. Remember this wedding can not go on if Bruiser's mom can't make it. What would people say?!
Elle's boss, Congresswoman Rudd (played by Sally Field), is 100% behind her. At first. After half of the movie has passed, Rudd does a 180 and pulls her vote. Long story short - Rudd has stock in a make-up line that does animal testing. Elle calls her sorority girls up to draw a crowd and up her chances of passing the 'Bruiser Bill'. With a little blackmail and 218 signatures, the Bruiser Bill is passed. All the test animals are set free and Bruiser is reunited with his mom. Oh happy day.
I can't say I am an excellent judge of acting, but I can always say if I believe it or not. Reese Witherspoon did a good job being perky and perfect. As always Sally Field is completely believable. Her part wasn't any major peice but I could see her as a congresswoman. Luke Wilson plays the groom to be in this movie. He is in probably less than 15 minutes of he entire movie and it's just as well. Even with that said, he's supposed to be getting married and I just didn't feel that at all. No chemistry whatsoever between him and Witherspoon. As for the rest - regardless of significance in the script, ho-hum...
On a side note - if the skin on Jennifer Coolidge chest gets any tighter, it's gonna rip.
It's ok. If it's on a movie channel and nothing else is on AND it's raining, THEN I might watch it. I borrowed my mom's Netflix rental and am glad I didn't spend a dime. While I knew it was going to be a lighthearted (lightheaded maybe?!) movie, I didn't realize that the movie was going to me centered on the dog (who by the way is gay?). That was stupid. Anyhow there were some funny spots that I a belly laugh out of. Most of which are one liners that come from Paulette (played by Jennifer Coolidge). I normally HATE dance numbers but there is a short one that is pretty funny (if you watch the big red headed guy). All in all I would have to say it didn't suck but it wasn't good either.
Save your time and money for something else. You may actually become a little more stupid for watching this movie.
By George, I think this is the shortest review I have ever written!
