But when she arrives there, things don't turn out exactly as she planned.
Starring Reese Witherspoon.
Follow Elle Woods as she goes through Havard Law School with her chihuahua and pink girly outfits! This film will entertain anyone who likes girly comedies and a bit of a giggle!
Legally Blonde 2 - Red, White and Blonde
If you watched and liked Legally Blonde, then you will lurrve Legally Blonde 2! Thank goodness they made a second one, because I seriously don't think just one would be enough for me!
Elle Woods returns in all her glamour and "pink-ness", but this time she has to locate the mother of her pet chihuahua. When she finds her in a science lab being used for experiences, she soon sets out on a mission to put an end to the cruelty.
Starring Reese Witherspoon.
If you loved the first Legally Blonde, then you'll love the second! Elle Woods returns for Part 2, this time in an attempt to rescue her chihuahua's mother from the cruel experiments of the science labs.
This film is great for the girls who love their films, and if you're an animal-lover, then it's even better!
Save the Last Dance

However, this sparks problems between Sara's family and Derek's family and friends.

This is the one film that I have watched over and over again. While I usually sell on all my DVDs after watching them, this is one that I have kept and intend to keep for a very long time. A heartwarming story about Sara and Derek, who, despite their different races, find a beautiful romance through their mutual love of dancing.
If you love tear-jerking, romantic films, this is most definitely one for you.
