[6] [7] In 2001, she reprised her role in American Pie 2 . Later in that same year, she had a supporting role in Legally Blonde as Paulette Bonafonté Parcelle the manicurist. Legally Blonde was a box-office hit, grossing US$96 million domestically. [8] The film's box-office success led to her reprising the role in its 2003 sequel, Legally Blonde 2: Red, White & Blonde , but the movie was not as financially successful as the first film and generated mostly negative reviews. [9] In 2003, she again played Jeanine Stifler in American Wedding .

In 2003, she played the protagonist's agent Luise in Testosterone filmed in Argentina starring David Sutcliffe as Dean Seagrave and Antonio Sabato, Jr. as Pablo.

In 2004, she had a supporting role in the romantic comedy A Cinderella Story playing Hilary Duff's character's vain, self-absorbed stepmother. The film went on to become a moderate box office hit despite negative critical reviews. [10] [11]

Coolidge nearly received the role of Lynette Scavo on Desperate Housewives , but it eventually went to Felicity Huffman. [12] From 2004 to 2006, Coolidge had a role in the NBC comedy series Joey as Joey Tribbiani’s oversexed agent Roberta "Bobbie" Morganstern.

Scott of The New York Times called the film "irreverent and also appreciative, dragging its satiric prey down to the lowest pop-cultural denominator" and added, "The humor is coarse and occasionally funny. The archly bombastic score ... is the only thing you might call witty. But happily, Jennifer Coolidge and Fred Willard show up ... to add some easy, demented class." [21]
