Legally Blonde

Legally Blonde


This various artists compilation, tied in to the college comedy Legally Blonde and billed as its soundtrack album (the film's score, composed by Rolfe Kent, is not included), is a compendium of contemporary pop styles, all presented by distaff performers who range from semi-names (Lisa Loeb, Mya, Samantha Mumba) to a set of pop-star wannabes. Most of the songs carry a message of female empowerment, starting with Hoku's bright pop/rock entry "Perfect Day." Joanna Pacitti's "Watch Me Shine" has a rhythmic urban style, Valeria's "Ooh la La" is the Latin pop song, and Lo-Ball's "Can't Get Me Down" is a punk rock selection. The songs that are most substantial are the ringers: Black Eyed Peas Featuring Terry Dexter's "Magic" "contains replayed elements from" the Police hit "Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic"; Mya's "Sex Machine" "contains samples of" James Brown's "Get Up (I Feel Like Being a Sex Machine)"; and Mumba's "Don't Need You To (Tell Me I'm Pretty)" is the obligatory Diane Warren ballad that no movie soundtrack can be without. The idea, of course, is that at least one of these tracks will score with some constituency or other and help cross-promote the movie. In fact, "Perfect Day" did just that, but the album is still a mediocre collection of second-rate pop material. ~ William Ruhlmann, Rovi
