In the opening, there is a reference made to Elle Woods crying at the age of 3 whenever she was taken to BabyGap. BabyGap didn't exist until 1990, when the character was probably about 9 or 10. Even GapKids didn't open until 1986, well after the character would have been 3. See more »

Fairly enjoyable, as a cartoon brought to life with real actors.
There can be little doubt, this movie is an inferior follow-up to Legally Blonde. Too many characters are recycled and made to look cute, but it doesn't work as well as when it was fresh. Still, Reese Witherspoon has created in 'Elle Woods' a character that is just fun to watch. She never stays down long, always picking herself up with a fresh approach until she achieves her goal. I look at it like a 'Roadrunner' cartoon, but with real people. It is silly and implausible, but funny. In this case the 'bad guys' are the US Congress in a parody of it's habit of making backroom deals and taking care of supporters to guarantee reelection, even if nothing is done to help constituents. Elle Woods finds that animals are used to test cosmetics, and her quest is to get a law passed that will make it illegal. Nothing more than cute, funny fluff.
