Elle Woods (Reese Witherspoon) is back in all her pink and fluffy glory. She has become a rising star in a law firm and is planning her wedding to Emmett (Luke Wilson). But when she discovers that her firm represents a company that tests cosmetics on animals (and some of these are relatives of her Chihuahua, Bruiser), she expresses her views and is promptly fired. Elle, now on a crusade, decides to take her views to Washington D.C. with all cannons firing. However, the political arena is not easy to break into - especially if you don't wear grey - but with the help of a worldy bellhop (Bob Newhart), Elle manages to convince Congresswoman Rudd (Sally Field) to take her on as an aide and get her views heard.
