Bend and Snap on Legally Blonde

Grande and Davis decided that a nail salon would be an ideal backdrop for parts of the video`s Legally Blonde tribute and quickly built an identical set filled with the same hair dryers, trash cans, and paintings. “In the end, we used trans light outside the windows to look like a street,” Says Davis. “I had to watch the film again and study the scene, and it was so much fun to go back and see it with new eyes.” With a variety of background dancers, Coolidge eventually joined the set — Grande had built a relationship with her after the actress`s impression of Grande went viral — and suddenly the “Bend and Snap” (renamed “thank n next”) had a new life. “[Paulette] used what she already had and applied it in a whole new way,” Davis says, aligning the scene with Grande`s lyrics. “She has not changed herself; She just made a better version of who she was. The film, released 20 years ago, is still a relevant feminist portrait of dubious diligence, but “Bend and Snap” lives as a parallel phenomenon. While this leads to a hurtful reward in the story (Paulette breaks her nose but gets her husband), it`s a silly and participatory punchline in itself, which has been reused and revived for theater shows, music videos, and even Italian gay nightclubs. For those involved in the stage – including a leading choreographer and several young actors and dancers – the creation is equally magical and requires weeks of rehearsal and filming to reflect McCullah and Smith`s unique vision. Jennifer Coolidge`s “Bend and Snap” scene in “Legally Blonde” is pretty iconic, but the actress herself doesn`t feel like the movement makes sense in real life. Shortly after Platt approved of the “Bend and Snap” scene, Luketic began thinking musically.

The director had just released his 1997 short titsiana Booberini, a musical that debuted at the Telluride Film Festival, and was eager to bring Smith`s step into a dance sequence. Luketic hired Toni Basil – the experienced dancer responsible for “Hey Mickey” – to choreograph the short scene. However, before it could begin, McCullah and Smith Basil had to show their movement, so they visited their dance studio to perform the basic mechanics. “[Toni] had other dancers there, and she said, `Okay, can you do it again? Watch! No more chicken wings at the top!` Smith recalls. “I thought, `What`s going on? It`s so crazy. Uninhibited by the rum-based cocktails she had drunk, Smith suddenly jumped out of her seat and began to make a captivating move. She stretched out her leg, bent down as if to grab something, and then quickly grabbed her standing body. “I laughed so much that I almost fell off the bar stool,” McCullah says. “The bartender probably stopped talking to us because he didn`t know what we were doing.” Soon after, the two were in Platt`s office and showed him their idea. “I don`t mind making a fool of myself,” says Smith, who remembers Platt laughing at her. “I really felt like a dancer or a very spoiled stirrer, and it came out of my psyche somewhere.” Coolidge is currently in the midst of a string of hits. Not only does she reprise her role as the adorable nail prosthetist Paulette in “Legally Blonde 3,” but she also reprised her role as Tanya McQuoid in the second season of “The White Lotus.” And while the “bend and snapshot” may not have worked for her in real life, the lead role in “American Pie” apparently did. In an interview with Variety, which she covers, the 60-year-old shared that the iconic turn and snapshot aren`t up to the hype.

As a brief reminder of the film, Coolidge plays Paulette Bonafonté, who is friends with Reese Witherspoon`s Elle Woods. To be fair, Elle Woods said the maneuver “has a 98 percent success rate in getting a man`s attention, and when used correctly, it has an 83 percent return on a dinner invitation.” But despite the imperfect reception of the curve and snapshot, it can be said that 100% of fans fell in love with the role of Paulette Bonafonté, which she played in both the 2001 film and its 2003 sequel. She teaches Paulette to bend and snap, slowly bending down and then quickly standing near a pose. The potential lawyer claims that the move has a “98% success rate in getting a man`s attention.” However, Coolidge now asks to be different. “I`ve never had a bending job for myself like in this film,” she admitted. “I think the crease and the pressure closure are misleading. But I have to say that when I took the curve and the snapshot, I was wearing my underwear and I feel like I have to leave it aside in real life. The White Lotus star explained that while “Bend and Snap” is memorable, it is far from the most cited line of the two films. “I`ve never had a job of bent for myself like in this movie,” Coolidge told the outlet in an interview published Saturday, Aug.

13. “I think the turn and the snapshot are misleading.” “The `turn and snapshot` is a moment in making a movie that I just wouldn`t agree with at all,” Coolidge said in a recent interview with Deadline. “I`ve never had an inclination job for myself like in this film. I think the turn and the snapshot are misleading. However, Coolidge isn`t convinced it`s a foolproof pickup tool for bending over and quickly picking up a pen while pushing your breasts up. She noted Saturday that it could work with a change of clothes. It`s contradictory! Jennifer Coolidge figured out if Legally Blonde`s iconic “Bend and Snap” movement has ever worked for her – and which line of the film is the most cited. Under the direction of director Robert Luketic, spontaneous two-part seduction eventually became a musical number in its own right, whose words bend and seep into pop culture history books. The scene takes place in the middle of Legally Blonde, when Elle (Reese Witherspoon) wants to give Paulette (Coolidge) a boost of confidence after an unpleasant encounter with her childbirth crush (Bruce Thomas).

She shares a lesson from her mother and explains the basics of “bending and slamming,” a maneuver that has a “98% success rate in getting a man`s attention.” (And, not to mention, “when used correctly, an 83% return on a dinner invitation.”) Soon, she begins to teach movement to the entire living room, with a dance session (brimming with all sorts of curves and snapshots) turning into a joyful celebration. In a few minutes, Legally Blonde turns into a surreal panorama covered with sweets. Born in Massachusetts, she played Paulette in Legally Blonde and Legally Blonde 2: Red, White and Blonde. In the first film, her character is commissioned by Elle Woods (Reese Witherspoon) to make the “Bend and Snap” train to land the delivery man on whom she fainted for months. At the end of the scene, Luketic brought John Cantwell to play Maurice, a salon clerk who makes everyone dance. “Oh my God, the `bend and snap`! It works every time! He said, before the camera cut two dogs barking okay. “As an openly gay comedian and actor, there were a lot of one-liners,” he laughs from the days of Legally Blonde. And although the illustrator (now a drag queen) didn`t have a chance to show his own curve, he enjoyed the piece. “It just tells you – gay hairdressers, we know everything.” “I have to say that when I did the `folding and snapping`, I was wearing my underwear and I feel like I have to leave it out in real life,” she added.
