Oh dear. Firstly may I just say that I watched this while doing the ironing…I mean, it just happened to be on.
It was also very lucky that the ironing kept me there, for if it hadn’t I wouldn’t have made it through the tedium of the opening scenes. I mean until Elle Woods (Reese Witherspoon) actually gets to Harvard the story is dull and uninteresting. I really would have switched off at this point.
However, stick with it and some, I do say some, humour comes out. Not great belly laughs, but still funny nonetheless. It’s a fun feelgood movie, extremely contrived and very formulaic, and guess what, it works for those reasons.
Still, it barely works. It could have been a lot better if it hadn’t been so spoon feeding, but it helped me through my ironing!
