33 Most Iconic 'Legally Blonde' Quotes

33 Most Iconic 'Legally Blonde' Quotes
Quotes

Legally Blonde is the best movie ever created, and the most memorable Legally Blonde quotes are just one reason why. 

Although the film came out in 2001, it is still relevant today. Reese Witherspoon plays the role of Elle Woods, a Delta Nu sorority girl who gets dumped by her boyfriend, Warner, because she isn’t “serious” enough. To prove him wrong, she follows him to Harvard Law School to try to win him back.

Although it begins like a romantic comedy, it drops the romance plot and becomes a feminist film about a woman who learns to love and believe in herself to achieve her goals. Her peers underestimate her due to her blonde hair and peppy personality but they are all proven wrong when she wins her case. Not only is it inspirational that she got into Harvard law, but it is inspirational that she stayed true to herself the whole time while rocking her signature color.
