Legally Blonde

Plot hole: The rule cited to allow Elle to be the attorney (with supervision) only allows "senior law students" who have taken a class in evidence to appear as an attorney. Since Elle is in her first year, she is neither "senior" nor has she taken any classes in evidence.

Plot hole: In the courtroom scenes, the victim's daughter, Chutney, is examined by the prosecution. This would mean that she has been sworn in. Yet, when she is examined by the defense, she is sworn in again. Wouldn't she still be considered "under oath"?

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.

Trivia: Although many people may not catch it, the "Harvard" in which the movie is set is actually the University of Southern California campus. If you look very closely in the background, the University's trademark buildings are visible.
