Pretty Woman

UK Release: 1st June 1990
Watched on DVD: Sunday 22nd May 2011
Rating: 15
Genre: Comedy, Romance
Runtime: 2hrs
Tagline: She walked off the street, into his life and stole his heart.

IMDb Plot Summary: Edward is a rich, ruthless businessman who specializes in taking over companies and then selling them off piece by piece. He travels to Los Angeles for a business trip and decides to hire a prostitute. They take a liking to each other and he offers her money if she'll stay with him for an entire week while he makes the "rich and famous" scene (since it doesn't do for a man of his stature to be alone at society parties and polo matches). Romantic comedy (and complications) ensue.

A Quick Review: I love it when you watch a film you haven’t seen for years and remember just how good it really is. 
You cannot go wrong with Pretty Woman. It’s the epitome of a feel-good romantic comedy. Julia Roberts and Richard Gere are the King and Queen of the genre and this is the film that almost defines the genre. 
But most importantly the film has heart. You follow, not only Vivian’s journey from the street to the penthouse, but also Edward’s journey as he becomes a man through her love. 
Ultimately this is one fantastic film and will remain a classic in my eyes forever.
Score: 9/10
