Last week, Reese Witherspoon appeared on Fashionably Late with Rachel Zoe, where she mused that the world was probably ready for a Legally Blonde 3.

“A lot of writers over the years have come up with different ideas for it. I actually think it’s kind of great right now because we’re talking about women in politics and how important that is to get more women,” Witherspoon said. “I think it’d be kind of a cool thing to have her be a Supreme Court justice or someone who runs for office.”

“I think we’re ready to see Elle and see what she’s been up to lately.”

Glossing over the fact that 2003’s Legally Blonde 2: Red, White and Blonde was a critical flop, we feel compelled to remind Witherspoon that there actually already has been a Legally Blonde 3: the creatively titled Legally Blondes.

The 2009 film (which was produced by Witherspoon, for shame) does not feature Woods, but mentions the character several times by name. Instead, it focuses on Izzy and Annie Woods, Elle’s British cousins who are forced to move into Woods’ Los Angeles home with their widowed father, who are forced to attend Pacific Preparatory, a private school with uniforms, on scholarship.

It is a film about class, integrity, and expressing your personality even from within (or beneath) a uniform. It is garbage.

A line from the trailer which looks depressingly low-budget: “Goldilocks make Justin-Bear happy.”

Hollywood is so cruel :(
