Legally Blonde
The premise of this movie sounds superficial: When sorority girl Elle Woods' boyfriend breaks up with her because she's "too blonde," she follows him to Harvard Law School to win him back. Yet this over-the-top comedy has unexpected depth and an inspiring message. Elle has great character development, growing in self-respect and confidence without losing her kind heart. There are some adult themes, but most of the film is tongue-in-cheek fun.
