An article like this is mandatory this year, as Legally Blonde completes 20 whole years! Reese Witherspoon walked into our lives back in 2001 and has not left ever since. With her “I object!” and “What,  like it’s hard?” Elle Woods, popularly known for her sass and smartness, has forever left a mark in all of our lives. Movies like Legally Blonde fall into a category of cinema that tend to stay with us forever.

Legally Blonde starts and sweeps through narrating the journey of Elle Woods played by Reese Witherspoon, to Harvard Law School from her California house. The reason why she goes there is not only to pursue law but to prove that she is just sincere and serious about being a wife material. Even though she’s aware of a certain engagement taking place between the man he loves and a girl named Vivian, nothing could stop her.

She pretty much separates herself from the crowd, immediately after entering the campus as a Malibu Barbie and grows to be the center of attention. To celebrate 20 years of Legally Blonde, we have come up with a list of movies like Legally Blonde that we believe are too good to miss out on.

The House Bunny stars Anna Faris playing Shelly Darlington. It starts out with 27 year old Anna Faris being thrown out of the Playboy Mansion on her birthday, because she is now ‘too old’. All Darlington knew up until that point was glamour and artificial happiness that comes with us.

She is lost because she is trained for absolutely nothing and has no direction whatsoever. Later, after interacting with a gang of sorority girls she discovers her actual voice from within. These sorority girls do not fit into the group of being popular or attention seekers in a stereotypical manner.

The one which has both can be termed as a complete package. The Intern rightly offers you a mix of entertainment and moral lessons. These feel good movies are fun to watch and always teaches you something. With the correct hint of comedy, romance and moral boost, The Intern always manages to stand out.

This Nancy Meyers directed movie gives a subtle hint of reality mixed with a little bit of magic. This movie is filled with new ideas and rules of the work environment and how to balance both and still be human.

The ways of how this new generation maintains work life balance along with a life of their own is portrayed quite beautifully in the movie. As we all know, starting a new job can be very exhausting. More so when you’re retired. Ben Whittaker, played by Robert De Niro, does that effortlessly.

He eagerly took the opportunity to become an ‘intern’ at an online fashion website, founded by Jules Ostin, played by Anne Hathaway.

She goes to every politician but her cry for animal’s help remains unnoticed.
