Yep, I said it out loud… I like the movie Pretty Woman. It’s okay, I’m in touch with my feminine side:)
No matter how old this movie gets, it’s one that you can watch over and over. It’s definitely on my list of top 10 favorite love story movies. I think the first time I watched this movie was when I was 10 years old with my sisters. They watched this movie every day! No lie.. every single day, for like a few months.
Pretty Woman is probably my favorite Julia Roberts movie, and I’ve seen a LOT of her movies… and I must not be the only one since it’s one of the most successful romantic comedies, with an estimated gross income of $463.4 million.
I think Julia Roberts played her role so well. She truly transformed from a Hollywood prostitute into a sharp professional woman in the end. Richard Gere’s role stood right there next to hers. It was great to see how his mindset shifted, from just a night or weekend of fun to a life of love. I’m a sucker for a good love story!
One of my favorite scenes from the movie was when Edward, played by Richard Gere, leaps from the white limo and then climbs the fire escape up to Julia Roberts. They used a Huntington limo, a white one to be exact. I think every woman dreams of having a night in shining armor, and I think this scene was the perfect metaphor for that.
