Legally Blonde as Reality Show?
They're making a Legally Blonde reality show, centered around finding the next Elle Woods for the stage. Seriously? I love the movie; it is one of our "most reached for" films in my house, up there with Moonstruck, Gross Pointe Blank, Raising Arizona, and You, Me, & Dupree. But the key to the film is Reese Witherspoon as Elle Woods, which makes the stage version much less of a "Must See" for me and making a reality show about it even less so. Luckily for me, I've got a friend who's written a snarktastic review of it. Read her thoughts, even if you would sooner fly to the moon without any protective gear (very dangerous according to the Discovery Channel's documentary on NASA's quest for space travel) than actually deign to watch reality television in general and this show in particular. I know I did.
