    • Um keep doing legally blonde videos and I’ll love u forever

    • The Take when will the next video be

    • Can you do a take on The Devil Wears Prada? I feel like there is a lot to talk about when it comes to Miranda Priestly and how she treated Andy.

  • The problem I had with this movie is that the reason she got into law school was because the all male admissions team was attracted to her admissions video, so it's kind of like she used her sexuality to get in, not hard work like most of everyone else (with exceptions of the people who got in via relations).

  • i'm a brunette yet i so strongly identify with elle woods. if you look a certain way, society assumes you _are_ a certain way and they treat you as such even if you behave to the contrary. it's even worse if you behave in a way they don't expect (i.e. if you're model pretty but mensa smart) because then you're abused by jealous men and ostracized and ignored/back stabbed by women out of jealousy. it's a very isolating feeling, even if you're a genuinely nice person. because no one reads it as sincere, they think you're being fake. it's really stupid and damaging and i hope one day society is rid of this behavior.

  • This is one of the movies that fucking changed me entire outlook on life and myself. I was ready to bash this movie, but after watching it, I felt like I understood myself better.

  • At 15:08, I could fall in love w/ Elle!! She has such a look of kindness & goodwill on her face when she says to someone who hasn't always been kind to her, "Look! He likes you!" Reese Witherspoon radiates genuine warmth & innocence there that's very attractive in just a few seconds! It pulls you to Elle like a magnet! Wow.

  • We need a "Legally Blonde 3: Commander in Chic"

  • I like how you guys defend feminine virtues in this and in the Cinderella video

  • I love this movie

  • I would love to be friends with Elle! ❤

  • A person asked me to watch this. There actually is quite a bit wrong with this video, but I will leave with this one thing. Be yourself to the fullest, but know when you should suppress yourself. The world is not kind or forgiving and showing to other people that you have something great or and of value will incentivize them to steal your light. Be a self regulated person and free spirit when you need to be. This goes for both males and females. And for the monsters..... you know what I'm talking about!

  • "what? practically deformed?" HAHAHHAHAHAHH has me on the floor each time i watch this film

  • This video is such a must-watch! Thank you!

  • Being raised telling feminine and pink girly things are stupid, now I challenge myself and stay true to my heart that I LOVE MAKEUP. I feel beautiful AND powerful and yes beautiful because I know it. I’m beautiful and you can’t change my mind on that😏

  • this movie is the reason i became a lawyer haha :)

  • Why did this made me cry

  • Can you make a video about the horrible wigs in Legally Blonde 2. Took me out of the movie! lol

  • Wait!.... blonds think? 🤔 😂 lol just kidding love blonds 😉

  • Leslie Knope in Parks and Rec similarly is peppy and excited about life, but is underestimated at first. She also proves that haters wring and is able to make them see her great value.

  • now do the take on jackie lynn from unbreakable kimmy schmidt

  • This channel is like therapy to me

  • One of the issues with the movie is Elle's lack of true passion for anything. In the beginning of the movie, she was passionate about fashion, and love. Only to be passionate about law at the end of the movie. The problem is she finds her passion for law by happen stance. One could assume she would find passion in anything Warner was interested in. If Warner went to med school, would Elle be passionate about medicine? Perhaps Elle is passionate about whatever she puts her mind to.

  • Most blondes nowadays are actually brunettes with a dye job

    • Alyssa Rose yes I wasn’t saying she wasn’t... but not THAT blonde.., even in the beginning of this movie they showed a Clairol box.... It’s Hollywood ... they glam up and give them highlights/lowlights, etc. My mom is a natural blonde but still lightens her hair or her hair gets lighter when she goes into the sun. My hair is naturally dark brown and I get “highlights” when I’m out in the sun. I didn’t say natural blondes were non existent.. I’m just saying most of the “blondes” we see today (myself included) are brunettes who bleached to get blonde hair.

    • I'm pretty sure Reese is a natural blonde though.

    • True, it's rare people stay blonde into adulthood. Our hair gets darker as we get older.

  • The thing I love the most about this movie is Elle's bond with Vivian, they were supposed to be rivals and fight to win some dude, but they end up being best friends, that's a very pure message.

  • I’m blonde

  • Did you just say that wanting to be married is superficial and negative? I just .... I'm sorry what?????

  • Oh and just because you are blonde doesn’t automatically make you attractive 😂. It depends on your face. Not your hair color.

  • I wish I could end Hollywood. These arbitrary stereotypes have GOT to stop. 🙄

  • THE IDEA OF LIKELY FAIRE CRITICS IS COMPLETELY FALSE FOR A SIMPLE REASON THAT ANY SO CALLED "PERFECT BLONDE" REALLY IS DUMPY AND STUPID!!!

  • I literally have a hearache listening to this flattering prejudice shit

  • Oh, sorry, but perfect blonde really IS dump and stupid!!!)))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))

  • Oh, my gosh!!!)))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))

  • So it sort of got the book right, even though it changed a lot.

  • No wonder she is always smiling/doesn't need a backup, while the rest of us out here are working on our plans A through Z, if any of those work out... 🙄 Talk about white/blonde privilege... 😏

    • No. She has attractive girl privilege.

  • This movie is all about girl empowerment, that you can be more that you can be the best and you're not just a girl with a pretty face, you can be anything you want as long as you believe in yourself. this movie made me realize that, Thanks elle ❤

  • can u pls do a sharp objects video pls

  • There's surprisingly alot of cross over between the fashion and merchandising industries and law and politics.

  • Do Bridget Jones’s

  • Why am I crying? I never understood why I loved this movie till now. I AM Elle lol I am loud, goofy, I speak my mind, I am all about sticking to my gut even though people think I am dumb for doing so.

  • I actually like blondes, the cheerful and positive kind, not the negative kind like mean girls

  • Will always be my favourite movie and musical.

  • Please do one about Blair Waldorf.

  • You know I never even noticed that Elle was actually smart. I just thought the moral of the movie was that she's nice. Thank you for educating me The Take!

    • She's borderline autistic.

  • this was so nice to watch. as a brunette who has her hair blonde, i’ve noticed how different people treat me. i’ve always wanted to play around with hair colors and i found new confidence in being blonde. not only do i look good but i love proving people wrong when they try to scam me in some way. i’ve noticed how people try to undermine me because i’m always dressed cute with makeup and skirts and jewelry. now my hair is orange with hints of blonde elle is an inspiration. we love a queen. thank u, next

  • She has gorgeous hair👌 Me and my hair be looking fried over here why😂

  • The idea that optimism is naivety and pessimism is realism that this film partly fights against is something that really annoys me. Pessimism never improves anything. Optimism fuels action.

  • I LOVE THIS SO MUCH 💖💖💖 Thank you so much ❤❤

  • I am a Norwegian troll. To me, the most important thing in life is money and making absolutely no commitments whatsoever beyond making money. When my time to die comes, my soul should be recycled same as any other soul belonging to a troll, a Norwegian, or a Norwegian troll. What can I say? Most revere the Bible and I revere Peer Gynt.

  • So she was progressive before it was popular to

  • Your content is superb and I can't wait to see more analysis of female characters in the future. I would love to see your take on Big Little Lies!

  • Can’t relate, I’m geniunly a more of an emo but hey I do it passionately😉 but any girly girls I give you my undying support

  • Going into my last year of law school in a few weeks and have to admit Elle’s Dad was kinda right :/

  • I love pink

  • Fantastic analysis. I always valued Elle as fantastic human being deep in my heart, although most people watching this movie just reduce her to "dumb and dramatic but funny"

  • Do one about Jennifer's Body, please. =)

  • i have never seen someone of these clips.. are they from the movie too??

  • I have to agree with Elle. Aristotle didn’t understand what he was saying.

  • I appreciate “Legally Blonde” for deconstructing “dumb blonde” stereotypes and how Elle’s “Chekhov’s Skill” (her knowledge of fashion labels and hair products) wins the case at the end. However, the movie is a “Broken Aesop”: We’re not suppose to sympathize with Warner, and it’s clear he’s a shallow, idiotic jerk for rejecting Elle (as well as not telling Elle that he’s already engaged to someone else), BUT if it weren’t for him saying that he wanted a “serious” wife, then Elle would never have gone to Harvard law school to get him back. Granted she stays at Harvard Law School for four years, even after she realizes that Warner will never take her back, but still, the fact that her motivation for going to Harvard revolves around getting her man back does rub me the wrong way. The movie would have been stronger if it were about a West Coast, blonde woman going to law school ON HER OWN TERMS (and not because of a man), and while she’s there, she experiences sexism and “dumb blonde jokes”, and therefore learns to not let the bullying get to her.

  • “If you’re going to let one stupid prick ruin your life, then you’re not the girl I thought you were.” Tell myself this on a daily basis! There might not be anyone else in the world rooting for you, so YOU have to always be your biggest fan.

  • “Our culture sends the message that traditionally feminine tastes and female-oriented bonding activities are lesser, in order to de-value women.” PREACH!!

    • Yup!

    • Its a sterotype. Like a bunch of white guys marchig with swastikas are being devalued for some reason. Almost as if history and experience taught humanity a valuable lesson about giving dipshits power leads to bad things.

  • i always watch this every year
