wink so i get to see a free sneak preview of legally blonde 2 tonight...

i'm very excited. i loved the first movie when it came out. i think reese is a great actress, i was first impressed with her back in like 95 in the movie freeway, believe it or not.

in case anyone isn't sure when this movie comes out, it comes out this coming wednesday, july 2nd. my mom was lucky enough to be listening to the radio and heard they'd be giving away tickets. i've also got free tickets for the in-laws that i need to use soon, and they're only good monday through thursday, so i might ask my mom if she wants to try a double feature.

i'll report back after the movie to say how it was, with no spoilers of course. oh, and no dissing of reese or legally blonde or i'll have you killed.

FYI -
I used to "Host" these screenings. Get there early. They often give away DOUBLE what the theater holds, and it is a "first come, first served" deal. I would have people go to the theater to get tickets during the day - and then come back for the screening later. It all depends though......

July 2nd in the US means September 2nd in the UK.

*sulk*
It's not released until July 25th here. Although to be fair, that's lots better than normal: it's usually like three months later here.

I know....the new releases here are still the ones that were showing when I left the US....I can't wait until there are some NEW (to me) movies out!!

Though I DID get to see Identity the other night, which was nice because I didn't have a chance to see it when it was out in the US.

while I'm happy that you get to go see the screening and that you like Reese, I was sickened by Legally Blonde, and this one looks even worse. She put on such awesome performances in Freeway and Election, and then she gets popular because of (IMO) a horrible performance of horrible material in Legally Blonde. It's a shame I say!!!!!

Anyway, since you liked the movie, I hope you have fun and like this one too.

oh yes. we're getting there like an hour early. however, i may decide to go even earlier. the movie's at 7:30, and i was thinking i may even go over there at 5. i figure at the very least, if people were waiting in line for hours for the free tickets, they'd probably do the same for the movie itself, since the preview is only showing at one time at this one cinema.

Great idea!

You know what elese is cool......we used to give away prizes too. Stuff from our company, or the local radio station or stuff the production companies sent out to promote the movie (Dog collars, t-shirts, toys....my favorite is the FARGO snowglobe I have).

I thought the first Legally Blonde was a cute movie, but I don't really see the point in having a sequel. I think they took the concept about as far as it will go in the original. Oh, well, that's Hollywood for you. Take a good idea and beat it to death.

As my sister is a law student and a member of a sorority I was repulsed by Legally Blonde. I thought it was funny but an insult to women at the same time. I don't think I'll be seeing the next one....

i can admit that i liked the movie, despite it's terrible representation of a lot of stereotyped social groups. i am not sure that the movie-makers were unaware of the ridiculous irony of some major points the plot hinged on...like the stereotype of gay men knowing shoe brands...but the whole movie was based on the stereotype of blondes so they HAD to know what they were doing...so maybe they just wanted a pretty girl in pretty clothes doing goofy stuff...i guess people got tired of movies starring Rodney Dangerfield doing the same thing...although it never hurts to throw Oingo Boing into a movie just to keep things rolling.
