Pretty woman walking down the street. Pretty woman the kind I’d like to meet. Now not only is this a song but it’s also a movie. "Pretty Woman" starring Julia Roberts and Richard Gere has to be one of the best classic movies out there. We all know the classic love story monologue. Rich guy falls for poor girl or vise versa. Well what if not only is the girl poor, but she’s also a hooker as well. That would make for some fun but maybe not so classy story telling. Edward is basically just trying to find his hotel in Beverly Hills, but ends up taking a wrong turn somewhere and that’s exactly how he runs into Vivian. Helping him get to his hotel, for twenty bucks of course, Vivian doesn’t realize she just might have met the one guy who can change her life. Edward realizes that he might just need her help the morning after. I don’t mean for one night or even just two either. Now is it for the better, or possibly for the worse? Who knows but I do know is that if you haven’t seen this movie you really should check it out. Not only will it have you laughing out loud, but it also just might have you wondering could those fated chances be real.
I love this movie! I remember when it came out and suddenly the idea of being a hooker seemed like it might actually have some appeal lol. Of course in reality, the chances of a Vivian type situation happening are infinitesimal, but that's what makes this movie so great .... because it just FEELS like it could happen!
The casting for this movie was literally lightening in a bottle. One of those rare occasions that not only do the leads have amazing chemistry, (I mean it was so good that they paired up again almost a decade later for Runaway Bride - another must watch!), but the supporting cast is excellent in their own right. My personal favorites are Hector Elizondo as Barney - the hotelier with a heart of gold (although seriously he is fabulous in EVERYTHING he does), and Laura San Giacomo as Kit, the sort of best friend that everyone needs in their corner.
As Jenn already opened this with the song riff, I am going to finish up be mentioning the soundtrack too. Everyone knows the Pretty Woman song by the late, great Roy Orbison, but I am also betting that you've heard the song "It Must Have Been Love" by Roxette. This song launched the Swedish group into a whole other stratosphere - and rightly so - even though if you want to hear my favorite by them check out "What's She Like" from their 1994 Album Crash Boom Bang! I'll even post the video for you lol.
