Reese Witherspoon returned to the role of sorority-girl-turned lawyer Elle Woods in Legally Blonde 2: Red, White, and Blonde. Though the film would be a financial success (grossing only $6 million less than the first film), Legally Blonde 2 was one of the most poorly reviewed films of its year. Its honors include an abysmal 37% Rotten Tomatoes rating and a #21 spot on EW’s “Worst Sequels of All Time” list.
