In 2003, our favourite blonde returned to the big screen in Legally Blonde 2 when she tries to save the life of her dog’s mum and takes on Congress to end animal testing.

Elle Woods graduated from Havard Law, got engaged to Emmett, and started planning her dream life as a high-flying lawyer. But things take a bad turn when she discovers that Bruisers mum is being held in an animal testing facility and wants to set her (and the other animals) free. Instead of her boss being supportive, she gets fired from her law firm and discovers she can’t get the animals freed unless she gets the law changed. Elle Woods is not a woman to shy away from a challenge, remember this is a woman who studied the History of Poka Dots and got into Havard Law, so she heads off to Washington to change the world while dressed in pink.
Thoughts on the Story
Elle Woods is a powerhouse in pink who shouldn’t be messed with, especially when she sets her mind to something. The movie has taken a very simple look at what it takes to change the world which might be offensive to those who actually have worked their way into Congress. But, regardless of your view on how accurate the movie is, this is one of only a handful of movies that shows women in power. In the early noughties, women were still fighting against stereotypes and battling to have it all. Elle Woods, despite being dressed from head-to-toe in pink, has brains and beauty. She showed an entire generation of young women that they could have it all.
This is probably an old movie now (15 years old at the time of writing this) but it is still relevant today. There are parts of the movie that are very cheesy and could probably be left out (the sorority thing with one of the senators) but overall it is a good movie. This is one of those movies that I would be happy to watch over and over again, but it isn’t as good as the first Legally Blonde.
