A more modern take on "My Fair Lady" but problematic when you really think about the storyline. Unrealistic. Did like the attitude of the main character getting to tell off snobby & judgmental people.

When this movie came out I really wanted to hate it because it was so overblown with publicity. However the more I see it the more I love it. Richard Gere and Julia Roberts are magical and I know that the subject of prostitution isn't something that should be glorified at all, but "Pretty Woman" is billed as a "Cinderella"-type story and I like that Richard Gere cares enough about her to encourage and help her be a better person. I think that's really what the message of the movie is. It's not trashy nor is there really any nudity (only the slightest), but the music, performances scenes of Beverly Hills and the romance are what makes this movie one of my favorites. Jason Alexander is amazing as Stucky, Richard Gere's college and lawyer who really puts Julia Roberts in her place. George Costanza would be shocked at Stucky's behavior! =)

To be honest this movie was a disappointment, judging by the cover of the movie I was expecting a comedic romance, which wasn’t what I got. I wasn’t a fan of Julia Roberts playing a cheesy prostitute because the plot of the story was quiet strange. Both actors in this movie were boring to watch due to the actors chosen for the roles. The movie contained many cringe-worthy moments that all made the romance not as heart warming as it should’ve been. Rating: 2/5

A business transaction turns into so much more for an unlikely pair who have a propensity for rescuing each other.

In a nutshell - I hated "Pretty Woman". I really did.

I hated how this film's idiotic story completely glorified the trashy profession of prostitution.

I hated the on-screen chemistry (or, the lack of it) between that chatter-box airhead, Julia Roberts, and that despicable, self-loving creep, Richard Gere.

I hated this film's preposterous fairytale premise of a street-level whore becoming the #1 love-interest of a billionaire corporate bloodsucker.

Yep. I really hated "Pretty Woman" from start to finish. I really, really, really did!

IMO - Richard Gere (playing the "pretty-boy" prince) and Julia Roberts (playing the "pretty woman" princess) rank right up there as being the most despicable and dreary on-screen lovers in Hollywood, royalty history, ever. It's true.

Let's face it, folks - These 2 completely superficial actors weren't even in the least bit interesting to watch. And, their sexual energy (which should have been this film's highlight, setting off sparks flying everywhere) amounted to being nothing but a big, flaccid zero.

Yes. This truly sickening 1990 Rom/Com (with its utterly demented dialogue) contained so many cringe-worthy moments that it all made my skin crawl, over, and over, and over, again.

Directed by Garry Marshall in 1990, this American romantic dramedy delves into the romance between a down-on-her-luck Hollywood hooker and a wealthy businessman.
Although it seems like how love transcends money, it turns out to be a yuppie fantasy that appears far from reality.
