Like a pumpkin that transforms into a carriage, some very shrewd casting (and the charisma of Julia Roberts, in particular) morphed this story of a Hollywood whore into a Disneyfied Cinderella story--and a mainstream megahit. This is the movie that made Roberts a star; the charm of her personality helping tremendously to carry viewers over the rough spots in the script (which was originally a cynical tale about prostitution called 3000--after the amount of money Richard Gere's character pays the prostitute to stay with him for the week). Gere is the silver-haired Wall Street knight who sweeps streetwalker Roberts into a fantasy world of room service at the Regent Beverly Wilshire Hotel and fashion boutique shopping on Rodeo Drive. The supporting cast is also appealing, including Laura San Giacomo as Roberts's hooker pal, Hector Elizondo as the hotel manager, Jason Alexander, Ralph Bellamy, and Hank Azaria. Now, is this something you want your sons and daughters to see? That's entirely up to you. --Jim Emerson --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

5.0 out of 5 stars Modern Day Cinderella June 3 2004
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Actors here are Brilliant, my thumbs are way up! I can watch this film over and over again.
If Disney's Cinderella are every girls dream. Pretty Woman maybe every boys dream,Why? Because when Richard Gere discovered that He's working so hard to pin down other competitors in business, at the same time his Attorney (Jason Alexander)benefits from it, Money wise.
Richard decided to follow his heart and continue falling in love with the Pretty Woman. So sad, Julia Roberts is a prostitute here but a good one, she even have several colors and flavors of condoms to choose from,That's safe sex!
This is a great story plot a millionaire meets his match a prostitute with a golden heart.In reality prostitutes deserves a little break. As for the Pretty Woman this is a big break, Kudos!

5.0 out of 5 stars "What's Your Dream" May 6 2004
Format:DVD
Take a classic musical like My Fair Lady, and take out the music. Then take Cinderella and put it into the modern world. Those two combinations make this perfect Gary Marshall film. Julia Roberts and Richard Gere are one of the best onscreen couples in the history of film. The movie really makes you feel for the characters. After the film, it is almost like you know Vivian. Comedy is everywhere as well as romance. All the performances are wonderful and the plot really grabs you. This is a definate film for anyone. See it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty Woman -Majer O' Sickey May 12 2004
Format:DVD
Pretty Woman starring Julia Roberts and Richard Gere is a romantic movie about a young woman, Vivian, who is a hooker for a living and one day stumbles upon Edward, a handsome and successful businessman. He needs to get to a certain destination and she gets him there in his beautiful sports car which he can hardly maneuver himself. Although their romance starts as an accidental meeting, after spending a short time with her he falls for her. He lets her remain in his hotel for a couple of days and attempts to transform her because he sees all the potential she has. Initially he falls for her because of her physical beauty, like most men do. They survey the women in front of them and decide who they will be with. As the days go by he tries to change the way she dresses in order for her to look more ladylike and so that she could fit the role of an ideal woman with not only her physical beauty but her attire as well. He tries to make her look as though she is from the high society by allowing her to shop at Beverly Hills with his credit cards of course. He clearly displays a stereotype of men which is that they feel that they need to take care of their women and keep them looking beautiful as though they were objects because the woman that they are with reflect somewhat how they will be seen by others.
Although Vivian has a job that is not seen as commendable, she is independent. She pays for her rent and supports herself alone. The arrival of Richard in her life changes that. He offers her luxuries she has never seen and she takes them. She transforms herself to fit the image of a woman he would fall in love with, which he does, but not solely because she changed her appearance but because he saw her charm right from the start.

3.0 out of 5 stars "Pretty" Woman May 11 2004
Format:DVD
What is it that has enabled Pretty Woman to be renowned as a modern-day fairy tale? Fairy tales usually provide a substantial moral that leave both children and adults with warm and fuzzy feeling inside. Was the moral of Pretty Woman that all it takes is some expensive clothes to confer respectability? In all fairness, Pretty Woman does play upon the idealistic feelings of its viewers. A "rags to riches" story, Vivian Ward (Julia Roberts) gets to live out the ultimate fantasy in which she is able to change a man into her own "Prince Charming." And of course, Edward Lewis (Richard Gere), playing a cold businessman, obliges her. In an instance, Vivian is transformed into the world's most wholesome prostitute (isn't that a double negative?). Never mind that she outrightly states that she'll screw anyone who'll pay. Vivian is "tall, cute and clean" - completely opposite to the sickly-looking hookers you really see on a neighborhood corner nearest you. The cheerful depiction of prostitution in this film is absolutely disgusting, and oh yeah, nothing short of a fairy tale.

In addition, why is the message "the clothes make the man" continually being sent to viewers? This idea may hold true during a job interview, however, the idea is not only demoralizing, but also wins the prize for being most shallow. In the film Trading Places, Eddie Murphy plays a homeless man who not only gains respect through his suit and tie, but also by exuding an intelligent and charismatic style. This is what enables him to successfully fool others in thinking he is a rich businessman. All Vivian manages to promote with her spiffy clothes is the idea that men will forever and always be surveyors and that she is trapped in a panopticon. What a shame...I'm trapped in a male-dominated society where bums get to be businessmen and prostitutes get to be "pretty women."

3.0 out of 5 stars Pretty Woman? May 11 2004
Format:VHS Tape
'Pretty Woman' is about a prostitute named Vivian, played by Julia Roberts, that finds herself in the employment of a very rich man named Edward, played by Richard Gere, that spends most of his time working.
Vivian does her thing and talks Edward into hiring her for the week for the amount of $3000. In order for her to do her job, she must go shopping for some new clothes. She encounters the first signs of prejudice when the store clerk will not wait on her. On her way back up to the hotel room the hotel manager stops her and to her surprise, he helps her in every way he can.
As the film progresses, Vivian starts to fall in love with Edward. When Edward's lawyer discovers Vivian's true identity, he tries to attack her, but Edward intervenes. Vivian then realizes that she could never belong in Edward's world.
After the week is over, Edward gives Vivian her pay. She goes home and starts to pack. She wants to go back to school and make something of her life, but at the same time she is missing Edward. Just before she is ready to leave, Edward pulls up in a while limo and climbs the fire escape, just like in one of Vivian's dreams.
The film is entertaining and is the ultimate fairy tale come true, but what does this film say to it's young viewer's.
The film implies a that a woman, in order to be 'pretty,' must be thin, young, and provocative. I wander what the ratings of this film would have been if a heavy-set, woman wearing no make up was cast as the leading role. An intriguing look into Hollywood film.
