This is most definitely one of the better chick flicks out there, and there are two sequels, so Elle Woods (Reese Witherspoon) must have been doing something right, but it was not always this way. So what does it make to get a fashion marketing major from L.A. to go to Harvard Law School? A chase and hunt to gain back the man she loves, or so she thinks.
Elle is a typical SoCal kind of girl, living the easy life with her parents in Beverly Hills, and being the president of her sorority chapter, Delta Nu, at C.U.C. L.A. and she is all set to take the next step. She has been dating Warner Huntington III (Matthew Davis), an East Coast preppie with his trust fund and dreams of running for the Senate. Only one thing is getting in his way of having that Harvard Law degree, and that is Elle. He wants a serious woman by his side, one that meets the standards of his blue-blood family, and he is ready to dump Elle to take his next step. After making a scene at a trendy L.A. bistro, and thinking her days with Warner are over, she makes a decision to follow her heart and her man, and applies to Harvard Law.

Susan is outside, fighting with a fit of cold feet, when she is hit by a mutagen-laced meteorite. She gets a bit scuffed up and dirty, but still looks okay, and her mother, Wendy Murphy (Julie White) comes out to get her. They go back into the church, and Susan is now ready to walk down the aisle, but as she does, she grows, and grows, rapidly, and soon, her head is hitting the ceiling of the chapel, and her guests are running in hysterics. Susan is frantic, not knowing what has happened, and she vows to Derek that she will find a way to fix things back to way they were. Fed forces come to the church, and tranq Susan, and she goes blank. Read more...(644 words, 75 images, estimated 2:35 mins reading time)
