Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Ms. Witherspoon won me over right from the start."
‑ Andrew Sarris, New York Observer
"As an actor of distinction who's all of 25, Reese Witherspoon reveals interesting dark roots even as she plays golden girls."
‑ Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly
""Legally Blonde" is a career misstep for a talented actress capable of creating much more complex characters."

"Silly comic fluff with as much substance as a scented resume printed on pink paper. But this movie is deliciously funny."
‑ Tim Riley,
"Mrs. Witherspoon is cast well below her considerable talents as an airhead Bel Air brat who has it all."
‑ Robert Bledsoe, Film Threat

‑ Michael W. Phillips, Jr., Goatdog's Movies

‑ Harry Guerin, RTE Interactive (Dublin, Ireland)
"Witherspoon deserves better than this."
‑ Margaret A. McGurk, Cincinnati Enquirer
"They've devised a potentially rich premise, only to play it safe, smoothing off every sharp edge and dumbing down any acerbic point."
‑ Rick Groen, Globe and Mail
"Bombshell discovers her brainy side in fun romp for teens+."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"...consistently entertaining and enjoyable."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"This is a modern day Capra movie, which means you might be embarrassed to tell your friends you went to see it, but you left the theater with a big smile on your face."
‑ Brad Laidman, Film Threat
"Comes up just short of making a winning case."
‑ Jeffrey Westhoff, Northwest Herald (Crystal Lake, IL)
