This post couldn't come at a more perfect time,
I literally just finished watching Legally Blonde, only because everyone had told me to watch it.

I wish I could take back the 2 hours of my life that I have just wasted.

My favorite law school moment is when she tries to join their study group and Selma Blair goes, "We already assigned the outlines." idk what that even means. But once this semester a girl showed up late for a study group-y thing where we split up cases to write about and send to each other, and I had a strong urge to say it.

My second favorite is when the tall guy gets her a book from the top shelf. Because clearly to study for law school, you need to check out a lot of books from the library.

Don't worry, I made my boyfriend watch it with me right after I took the LSAT and he loved it. You are not alone!

I watched legally blonde right after my lsat too--I love that movie. I love marshmallow fluff movies--i don't like movies like the matrix: if I wanted to use my brain, I'd be reading, not sitting infront of a tv screen. So yeah, I'm partial to really brainless fun movies

1) I agree with you about brainless fun movies. Since I'm still in school, I use my brain all the time. I love just shutting it off!

2) I made the mistake of watching legally blonde about a month before my LSAT. I got as far as when she receives her score, because after watching her crazy studying, I started to freak out and turned it off and did a practice test.

Um, that is EXACTLY my stance on movies. They're supposed to be entertaining, no? tbh, I sometimes feel this way about books as well - I mean, I'll read pretty much anything, but I certainly have a stack of chick lit and I'm not ashamed.

I think she was just enjoying the lawyer's explanations too much to want it to stop. She hid it well behind a facade of understanding, but really she was laughing her ass off.

I dunno - I would have thrown his ass in jail for contempt. I suppose entertaining the judge for half an hour is a great mitigating factor though.
