During the opening scene, while looking at the scrapbook, one of the girls points to a photo of Elle with Congresswoman Rudd (Sally Field). She says, "Those are two kick-ass women. I like them, I really like them", a reference to Sally Field's acceptance speech at the 1985 Oscars. See more »

Legally Blonde, the original, was a fun and enjoyable movie. It wasn't terribly original, but it was well done; by the end, you felt connected with Elle, and delighted in seeing her meet her potential and outgrow her shallowness.
Then came Legally Blonde II, where we find Elle back to her shallow ways. It was as though all that growth she'd experienced in the first movie was gone, and the writers completely missed the point of the previous movie. It wasn't good because she was a flake, but because she learned her worth. The second movie seemed to think "Oh, a movie about a flake... let's do another one." The acting was fine, but the writing missed the boat completely. Absolutely horrible.
