Modern Day Pygmaelion,
This review is from: Pretty Woman [Import] (DVD)
Pretty Woman is a great movie. When Julia Roberts acted in this 1990 classic, she was sexy, vibrant and cute. In her latest movies she seems to have lost her charm, and appears awkward and frumpy.
It is a romantic comedy about a lovable prostitute Vivienne (Julia Roberts) hired by a spoiled, jaded billionaire, Edward (Richard Gere) for a highly unusual assignment.
Needless to say, this encounter irreparably changes both of their lives forever. Thouroughly a story that is funny, touching and engaging,
The change is Vivienne from a streetwalker to a lady mirrors a Pygmalion/My Fair Lady type of theme.
As the voice at the end reminds us, sometimes your dreams come true and sometimes they don't but you are always free to dream!
Some pretty memorable stuff in this movie!
