Fischer and Angela Kinsey (Angela Martin) tackled “The Fire” episode on their Office Ladies podcast. As you remember, it is the one where the Dunder Mifflin gang is forced to wait outside after the office catches on fire because of Ryan's (B.J. Novak) cheese pita.
To kill time, the gang plays “Stranded on a Deserted Island,” listing the films they would take with them on if they were on a deserted island. Meredith (Kate Flannery) says Legally Blonde, and Jim responds by making fun of the movie. Eventually Pam agrees that she loves the Reese Witherspoon-led film as well, only to retract her statement when Jim judges her, telling her they shouldn't be picking guilty pleasure movies.
Fast forward years, and Fischer has finally righted this mistake, Mashable reports. “I think Legally Blonde is a great movie that has a positive message. Jim is wrong,” the Splitting Up Together star admitted. Kinsey jumped in, saying, “You heard it here, Reese Witherspoon,” while Fischer added, "Yeah, Reese Witherspoon, in case you were worried that the movie didn't land, we love Legally Blonde. It landed. We loved it.”
Much like those people who say orange is the new pink, whoever said Legally Blonde wasn’t worth taking to a deserted island is seriously disturbed.
