reminder that this movie took female stereotypes and smashed the ever living hell out of them
"Do you think she just woke up one morning and said -"
"I think I’ll go to law school today."
“I’m Elle Woods. I have a bachelor’s degree in fashion merchandising from CULA. And I was a Zeta Lambda Nu Sweetheart, president of my sorority, Delta Nu, and last year, I was Homecoming Queen.”
I love this film. It features a smart, strong, independent woman who isn’t afraid to show her femininity while being awesomely successful.
#we never joke about legally blonde #like really let’s just #first: obvious girl power message about how we don’t need no man and how you can do what you want with hard work #including the things people say are quote hard like get into harvard law (see photoset) #second: genuinely clever #like seriously clever wonderful well-written comedy that doesn’t stoop to low brow type humor #oh no sir no one is slipping and falling on a banana or making jokes about sex here #third: GIRLS CAN BE FRIENDS AND NOT HATE EACH OTHER #elle is so nice to even vivien who she probably is allowed to not like #she asks in the movie how could she be so mean #she genuinely does not understand cruelty how WONDERFUL ELLE WOODS IS WONDERFUL #FOUR: REESE WITHERSPOON LITERALLY IN THIS FILM MAKES YOU CRY WITH LAUGHTER #and then cry with tears #over a dumb girl comedy #that’s the best part because it’s all about some dumb cali girl majoring in fashion merchandising and people expected that #and they got one of the best movies in recent memory
