10 Bad Lessons You Probably Learned From Legally Blonde

Legally Blonde is one of those movies that I will drop whatever I’m doing to watch if it’s on TV. I’ve probably seen it about 50 times, maybe more. It’s funny, cute and ended up being a pretty empowering movie. I remember blasting the soundtrack and singing along to “Perfect Day” when I finally got my driver’s license.

Elle Woods is a character that no one should really aspire to be, at least not in the beginning. I totally appreciate the transformation of Elle from a ditzy girl with no ambition to a hard-working woman with a good head on her shoulders. I think it’s really important that the movie ends with her being a strong, independent character.

But I don’t like some of the things we had to deal with to get there.

    I really disagree Legally Blonde telling us “That you should let someone make you feel like you aren’t good enough.” It doesn’t teach that at all. Elle had only then realized that, for Warner, she would never be good enough. And, when she did, she went right on to prove him wrong, to show everyone who looked down on her. That’s part of her journey.

    The point was that Elle didn’t find law school difficult, not that it isn’t hard. It was pointing out that she was a lot smarter than the blonde stereotype made her out to be

    I just love this movie and I think we shouldn’t take everything it could teach us too seriously

    I wasn’t a big fan of the movie; but I absolutely LOVED Legally Blonde: The Musical!!! It is such a fun musical; it’s nothing compared to something like Les Mis, but it’s just really fun and makes you smile… Favourite quote, “What does not kill us makes us hotter!!!”
