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.

Elle: Oh, I like your outfit too, except when I dress up as a frigid bitch, I try not to look so constipated.

Trivia: There is a scene in the movie where Elle is laying in bed watching an episode of General Hospital, depressed that Warner dumped her. In the same scene, Amy, one of the sorority girls, knocks on the door to make sure she is ok. Kimberly McCullough, who plays Amy in the movie, played Robin on General Hospital.

Question: In the scene in the library, where Elle gets turned away from Vivian and Warner's study group, she and Enid get into an argument, where Enid remarks, "Like when you called me a d*ke and then voted against me?" to which Elle then accuses Vivian of saying it. What scene are they talking about?

Answer: Enid is accusing Elle of being a stereotypical, snooty sorority girl, like the ones who had obviously been cruel to her in the past.

Brian Katcher

Answer: It's not a scene in the movie, and presumably didn't actually happen as Elle protests her innocence.
