The stereotype of the "dumb blonde" in Legally Blonde (2001)

Analysis of how the film Legally Blonde stereotypes the leading protagonist Elle Woods as a "dumb blonde". Perhaps look in to how the film attempts to distract from this stereotype yet continues to represent Elle as this character.

  • I think you might be missing the point/need to exit the very early 2000s mindset of what a woman should be. After movies like House Bunny (and other 2000s Rom coms) and the Marilyn Monroe figure became integrated into pop culture and eventually led to the hyper gendered misogyny and female stereotypes that still hurt us today. Legally blonde and mean girls and she’s out of my league are all riffing on that, Elle just happened to be one of the first women in recent media to prove that smart and pretty and sexy are all one thing, and her accomplishments were her own. (I count her final bf as eye candy). In the musical the song “so so so much better exemplified this) plus her friendship with her exe’s new girl and the salon owner provide examples of female friendship that are not based on clique mentality or appearance – chloedubisch 2 months ago

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this. As a long-time fan similar to many I was annoyed by the ending of the show, but through reading your points here it has definitely made me question my original opinion. I may now have to watch the series again (for the 10th time).

I completely agree and I am currently studying social classes within The Only Way is Essex as a part of my Undergraduate Degree! It’s definitely valuable to consider other docusoaps from various locations like Geordie Shore, Made in Chelsea and perhaps even the Valleys!

I find early cancellations of shows challenging, due to jumping on the bandwagon of popular shows late. Therefore, by the time I watch them they are usually cancelled. Although, I must say I have been a fan of Brooklyn nine nine from the beginning and I am very happy that NBC picked it up
