Corrected entry: After Elle gets dumped by her boyfriend (near the beginning), she is walking along the street and shots switch between her and her (ex)boyfriend in the car. The shot switches to her and suddenly her hair is quite messed up.
Corrected entry: At the very beginning of the movie Serena has bangs, but when Margot is picking out her wedding dress Serena says "I got bangs." She already had them almost half of the movie. (00:00:57)
Corrected entry: After Elle wins her case the show moves to the graduation. The words "two years later" drop down the screen. but as Elle gives her speech she states: "in my 3 years at Harvard." Not only are there two different years being mentioned in the movie. In reality you have to take 3-4 years of law school after you get your Bachelor's degree.Pjpodemski
Corrected entry: When Enrique describes Chuck as "just a friend," Chuck calls him a bitch and storms out of the courtroom yet hasn't been the least bit bothered by Enrique's testimony that he's been having an affair with Brooke.
Corrected entry: The first law class scene involves Reese Witherspoon getting kicked out of the room for being unprepared to answer questions regarding Gordon v. Steele, a very basic Civil Procedure case. The scene closes with the professor asking Selma Blair about the result in Gordon v. Steele. She responds that the court held that there was not diversity jurisdiction. The professor replies that Selma is correct. But, this is entirely the wrong answer. The court in that case held that there was diversity jurisdiction. Merely getting a case wrong would seem trivial, but again this is literally the first case any law student studies in Civil Procedure, a first year class. How could a screenwriter get this basic case completely wrong?
Corrected entry: The idea that Elle was able to go from a 143 on the LSAT to a 179 is utterly ridiculous. The scores for the LSAT are not given as objective scores like on most high school or college exams, but are weighted, etc., so it's possible to raise a score, but not by 30+ points.Joel Amos Gordon
Corrected entry: The daughter, Chutney, is examined by the prosecution, then the defense should have had the opportunity to cross-examine her. However, in between her first testimony and the scene where Elle gets her to confess is the testimony of the pool boy. If Chutney is a witness for the prosecution, she would not have been able to be called as a witness for the defense as well, seeing as they already cross-examined her.
Corrected entry: In the beginning of the movie, we can see one of Elle's friends go into a shower room to get a signature. You can also see that it was signed with a pin. The shower room was very moist and humid. So much humidity, in fact, that the card being signed would have had some kind of noticeable smudges on the ink. Yet nobody seems to notice anything at all wrong with the card.
Corrected entry: After Chutney confesses that she accidentally shot and killed her father, the judge tells the bailiff to take her away and charge her with the murder of her father. However, since killing her father was not premeditated, she should be charged with manslaughter, not murder. A judge who knows the meaning of "mens rea" should know the difference between murder and manslaughter.Paul Pepiton
Corrected entry: When Elle, David, and Enid all introduce themselves at the start of the film, Elle says, "Hi, I'm Elle Woods, and this is Bruiser Woods, and we're both Gemini vegetarians." However, feeding your dog a vegetarian diet would make it sick and it would eventually die a long, painful death.
Corrected entry: At the beginning of the movie when Elle is invited to the 'costume party,' she enters wearing her bunny outfit and the first person she runs into is the lesbian girl with glasses playing foos-ball. After Elle walks through the party and finds Warner, that same lesbian girl with the glasses is all of a sudden there at the keg arguing with Warner about something. So once the lesbian girl saw Elle did she run to Warner to monopolize him at the keg?
Corrected entry: At one point Vivian comes into Elle's room and asks for the deposition for the criminal case on which they are working. Criminal cases do not have depositions - civil cases do. Criminal cases have witness statements taken by the police. Although defense attorneys can do their own investigation, they still would not do a deposition, just an interview.Joel Amos Gordon
Corrected entry: At the end of Legally Blonde, it says that Elle was a part of the graduating class of 2004, however, in Legally Blonde 2, when Margo and Serena are doing the cheer with the interns to try to get support for the discharge petition, they say "intern class of 2003 on deck." If Elle was in the class of 2004, then she wouldn't have been in Washington practicing law in 2003.
Corrected entry: When Elle is going into the room with Callahan and the other interns, she must have driven. But after she and Emmitt go to the spa, he drives her home. Where is her car?
Audio problem: In the scene after Reese Witherspoon and Luke Wilson are returning from questioning the ex-wife of the murder victim at a spa, they are driving up in Luke's car. You can clearly see, as they get closer to the camera, that what you hear Luke saying isn't what his lips are saying. It was a very obvious dub over...and a very bad one.
