[T]here's nothing light about this movie's comic touch. Full Review
Despite its cornball attributes-maybe because of them-this is a sweetheart of an old-fashioned romantic comedy. Full Review
The movie displays an almost preternatural disregard for women's feelings - call it Pygmalion, with a heavy accent on the first syllable - but the comedy is so slickly delivered that audiences may be content with chuckling over its polished surface ... Full Review
This is old-fashioned, assembly-line moviemaking without the old panache. Full Review
Roberts' break-out movie...
The Roberts smile - full-lipped, a mile wide and gleaming - is the closest the movies have yet come to capturing sunshine. Such dazzle should not be taken lightly. Full Review
...Something special....[Roberts] is so enchantingly beautiful, so funny, so natural and such an absolute delight that it is hard to hold anything against the movie...
New York Times
In the Cinderella story that made Julia Roberts a star, a corporate raider hires a hooker to pose as his girlfriend for a week... and falls in love. Meanwhile, she wonders if the straight life - with him - might be a dream come true. Academy Award Nominations: Best Actress--Julia Roberts.
Description by Buena Vista Home Entertainment.:
Pretty Woman: 15th Anniversary Special Edition
This 15th Anniversary celebration of PRETTY WOMAN is even more irresistible than ever with all-new, never-before-seen special features you'll love at first sight. Academy Award(R) Winner Julia Roberts (Best Actress, ERIN BROCKOVICH, 2000) is a spirited, streetwise diamond in the rough when she meets a no-nonsense billionaire played by Golden Globe winner Richard Gere (Best Actor In A Motion Picture -- Musical Or Comedy, CHICAGO, 2002). It's a chance encounter that turns a weeklong business arrangement into a timeless rags-to-riches romance. This Special Edition will seduce you with all the comedy, charm, and passion you remember about this classic -- plus more!
While driving back to his Beverly Hills hotel, millionaire corporate raider Edward Lewis takes a wrong turn and ends up on Hollywood Boulevard, where he meets prostitute Vivian Ward. She steers him back to his hotel, charming him along the way, and he decides to hire her for the rest of the evening. In the morning, Edward realizes that he could use an escort for the week, so he hands Vivian $3000 to stay -- and sends her on a fantasy shopping spree. What begins as a purely business transaction develops into something more, but can a poor prostitute and a rich businessman really live happily ever after'
