    In this sequel, as Elle uses her good-hearted pluck to work toward her goal, Witherspoon is a sheer delight, all charm and light and loveliness; you just want her to win.
  2. Elle fans will likely ignore the narrative shortcomings in favor of a well-loved character.

    An even sweeter and lighter whipped confection than "Legally Blonde," this hugely enjoyable sequel serves up a generous second helping of the ingredient that made the original such an irresistible hit.
  4. Both more and less of the same -- more of that hot-pink couture, a whole lot more of that diminutive doggie, less reason to laugh even if you're a tank-topped 16-year-old.

    Though there are some funny moments, little in "Red, White and Blonde" is enjoyable.
  6. 40
    Like the first movie, this has some cute gags but collapses like a soggy paper plate because it can't decide whether to mock or celebrate the heroine's shallow materialism.
  7. One of the strongest arguments yet for making sequels illegal.

    I'm not sure how much worse a movie could get. The most annoying characters, generic plot and horrible humour. I think I would go mad if II'm not sure how much worse a movie could get. The most annoying characters, generic plot and horrible humour. I think I would go mad if I watched it a second time. Collapse

    Literally the worst film I have ever seen, contrived artless rubbish.
