Robert Fisk reviews Legally Blonde I. I have said before that Robert Fisk is one of my favorite foreign correspondents, until the assassination of Hariri when his friendship with Hariri and with Jumblat got in the way of his reporting. I still squirm when I read his dispatches on Lebanon. But let me add this: I also don't enjoy his movie reviews. Just read his review of Munich--he called it "absolutely brilliant", and could not believe it. As if he watched a different movie. But wait: the movie he reviewed is not the Munich that I watched and reviewed. Maybe he was reviewing Legally Blonde I, and did not know it.
