"Proposing? Elle.. if I want to be a senator by the time I'm thirty, well, I gotta marry a Jackie, not a Marilyn.."

"Is it because my boobs are too big??!!!"
😁 You see where I'm going with this. I've only watched the movie a million times. Reese Witherspoon takes the cake with this 'intelligent dumb blonde' character. It's such an idiotic feel good romcom, you just have to love it !
The film transfer is excellent, flawless detail and nice dark blacks keep the movie popping nicely, not too surprising on a relatively recent film mastered to blu ray. The sound is a nice stereo transfer, nothing amazing but it is clear with a clean sound stage and excellent voice clarity, no issues picking out dialogue, no muddy music or sound effects, all is nice and crisp. An excellent transfer all in all.
The fact that her character makes it into Harvard Law School attests that she is no nitwit, but that she simply isn't interested in much beyond social partying and the newest fashions--until a reason to care about more arises.
It is not an important film, but it was a lot of fun to escape the real world for a couple of hours and laugh.
As I said, it's a silly film, but I really enjoyed it. If you want to leave your troubles behind and are just looking for some fun, light fare to watch, look no farther than this fun little film.
I've heard that this film is good, not what you expect, yayah. whatever. I was bored home alone over break, so I tried it.
it's a wonderfully honest expectations vs reality. you expect what you get for the first half - pretty girl loses her Boyfriend, decides to win him back, gets in to Harvard (HOW? by sending a video of herself in a bikini *shudders*).
blah blah blah.
the tipping point for me was the "costume party" - she finally has a word alone with her ex. he basically tells her what the rest of the world has been telling her - she's "too pretty" to be a lawyer. she's hot already, why try for a hard and possibly *gasp!* rewarding goal? she already has the male gaze! *heavy sarcasm*
up to this point, she really hasn't been /trying/ to be a lawyer, just the kind of girl the Boyfriend wants.
instead of crying/wailing/wanting him back, the movie takes a rad left into "I'm going to beat you at your game, FOR ME."
a rare and very good tone to take, if done right.
this movie to me is her kicking her personal patriarchy's butt, so I had fun.
if the goal is to make some little feminists, I'd go for the 8 to tween range and talk about it after/throughout.
