TCP#23: Legally Blonde

Welcome to the January 26th edition of Tuesday Couch Potatoes where we post about a movie each week. This week's theme is Order in the Court. If courtroom dramas and legal jargon amaze you, if you are IN for the truth and the righteous, and simply enjoy seeing people in coats and ties, rushing about their cases, then this is your theme!



BUT, as always, here's our theme for last week: Girl Power movies. Eickcaj of Living Life to the Fullest featured Mano Po 6: A Mother's Love, a Filipino film starring Sharon Cuneta. Find out why she thinks this is a Girl Power movie.



And now for my pick this week: Legally Blonde. Don't get me wrong, I have always loved courtroom drama movies but they are just all too serious. I know other Couchers will post about them so I have chosen this 2001 comedy film starring Reese Witherspoon instead. When I first watched this movie, I thought it would be just another chick flick but there was more to it. It was funny and Elle Woods has proven to herself and to the world that there is more to her than just shopping, fashion and blonde hair. She realized that getting herself into law school was the best thing she ever did. She managed to win a case for a fellow sorority sister, a friend, and a real man for a boyfriend. If you want to find out more about the movie, watch it! Hehe!

Anyway, here's a trailer taken from YouTube.com:

I've watched this movie and loved it. Reese Witherspoon justified her character. This is a movie that will make you laugh and is worth your time. Mine is up now.

Happy TC!

I hope mine counts. It's not a courtroom movie, per se, but there's a trial in the movie, much like a courtroom scene, too. &#9786
