The musical takes a different direction from [[Film/LegallyBlonde the 2003 movie]]. The genre disparity between the over-the-top wacky comedy (Elle's two sorority sisters, the "bend and snap" scene) and the more realistic comedy (almost everything else) is gone. "Bend and Snap" as a big dance number fits right in in a musical full of big dance numbers. In fact, the bend-and-snap is made into an actual plot point, replacing the mind-bending "designer shoes" plot point from the film. Minor characters are dropped in exchange for expanding the current cast. The musical version's Emmett has a real give-and-take relationship with Elle, Kate's character is expanded as she helps Elle get into Harvard law, the Delta Nu sorority is more diverse, and Brooke Taylor Wyndham seemed like an actual fitness enthusiast capable of making her empire instead of being just a glamorous Barbie doll. Warner and Elle did their undergrad at UCLA as opposed to the fictional CULA.

* DidntThinkThisThrough: So, Elle, you've gotten into Harvard Law - except that not only has Warner ''not'' taken you back, he's dating someone else. Plus you're seriously behind in reading for your classes. Now what?

Plus you're seriously behind in reading for your classes. Now what?what? (Even before this, when Elle ecstatically plans to get into Harvard and immediately skips ahead to planning the wedding, one of her more academic friends pipes up with "Now can we think this through???" and points out everything Elle will need to do to succeed.)

* ShaggyDogStory: Brooke won't reveal the details of her alibi [[spoiler: getting butt liposuction, the knowledge of which she claims would kill her fitness empire]] resulting in a long and convoluted trial that nearly resulted in Elle returning home with her spirit crushed, and Brooke herself nearly sentenced to death for murder. At the end, when Elle proves that [[spoiler: Chutney killed Brooke's husband, Brooke gets lost in the heat of the moment and ecstatically declares that now "no one will need to know I had lipo on my thighs!" - in front of a crowded room of people (including reporters) thus rendering the whole reason for the trial, and everything Elle did to prove her innocent, rather pointless.]]

* StrawFeminist: Enid qualifies as one. To clarify, she considers a man who murders a nun and runs over puppies to be a "typical man".
