Elle Woods (Reese Witherspoon) has it all. The perfect boyfriend, the designer wardrobe, and above all, she’s a natural blonde. That’s until said boyfriend, Warner Huntington III, breaks up with her at a fancy restaurant, when she was expecting him to propose. The reason? He’s an aspiring politician about to go to Harvard Law School, and she’s not “serious” enough to join him. Taking matters into her own beautifully manicured hands, she decides to get into Harvard Law too. What, like it’s hard?
