This movie is not a feel good movie. It's a feel great movie! I walked out of the theater with a perma-smile on my face and a gut that ached from laughing. And, truth be told, when I went in, I didn't even like Reese Witherspoon.

Reese plays Elle Woods, a California IT girl who's biggest challenge in life is matching her lipstick to her boots and finding perky little outfits for her doggy, Bruser. (Bruser is a chihuahua, by the way.) Elle is dating the campus hottie, Warner Huntington III. He's an East Coast richie who decides to dump Elle when he gets into Harvard Law School. He says she's a "Marilyn" (Monroe) and he needs to marry a Jackie (Kennedy). In other words, he thinks she is too ditzy and superficial to be a good wife.

Elle decides she can't live without him and gets herself enrolled at Harvard Law - which is quite an accomplishment for a Fashion Merchandising major. Her admissions essay is a video of her in the swimming pool in a sequined bikini giving updates about Days of Our Lives. Once at Harvard, her distinct style and attitude have her totally out of place and friendless. To make matters worse, Warner has already found his "Jackie" and is engaged.

This movie is full of subtle jokes. There aren't too many big spectacular gags but there are little jokes every couple of minutes. And the little jokes are way funny. Laugh ratio equals one giggle every 30 seconds. And you like Elle. You really like Elle. It makes you realize that you don't have to be typically book smart to be a winner. Society always tells us that uniqueness is good but people seem to reject people who don't conform. Elle doesn't conform and people grow to love her - and most importantly - respect her. If you're not into the underlying message - then go for the laughs. Either way it's totally worth it.
