Legal Chops

It’s easy to doubt something that goes against our prior experience. Elle Woods is a very typical girly girl in Legally Blonde (directed by Robert Luketic, MGM Pictures, 2001). When she is dumped by her boyfriend, who is on his way to law school, she follows him. When she starts to discover that she has legal chops, she faces a lot of skepticism and doubt, but in a high-profile case, she puts her money where her mouth is, and earns respect from the legal community.
