Girls, Legally Blonde Movie Shows Us Why Our Solidary Matters

Film Review

, (Mening Lestari )

Have you watched Legally Blonde? For those of you who don’t know, Legally Blonde is a romantic and comedy movie released in 2001. Several scenes of this movie are also the inspirations for Ariana Grande’s music video titled Thank U Next. The main characters in this film include Elle Woods (Reese Witherspoon), Vivian Kensington (Selma Blair), and Warner Huntington III (Matthew Davis).

The plot of this movie does not only present romance but Elle’s struggle to break society’s stigma against girls who have blonde hair and love fashion. In the end, Elle Woods also managed to get her version of a happy ending. Also, there are not a few scenes that show us why girls should be solid and support each other.

Girls are always being compared and pitted against one another 

Warner Huntington III dumped Elle Woods and stated that she was not “the serious girl” who can support him while he wanted to continue the family law firm. This was the beginning of the competition between Elle Woods and Vivian Kensington (Warner’s fiancé) to win Warner’s heart. They were competing to be the best student in their major. Vivian even kept knocking Elle down to show that she was better than Elle.

The other girls’ support is one of the keys to a girl’s success

Elle’s decision to enter Harvard University is certainly opposed and even belittled by people. Elle, who is used to studying fashion and didn’t know much about law, had the support of her female friends to prepare for the LSAT exam and live her life as a law student.

Expecting recognition from people who don’t value you is just a waste of energy

In the end, Elle and Vivian realized that they shouldn’t be fighting over an adoration from Warner. They recognized each other’s potential and have given up what makes them compete with each other. Elle’s motivation changed because she found her passion in the legal field.

Overall, the movie provides a relaxing and enjoyable story, especially for people who watch thrillers more often than romance like myself. Even so, the message implied in this movie is very meaningful. This is a recommended movie for those of you who are feeling down as it doesn’t stress you out but gives you motivation.
