Director: Garry Marshall
Actors: Richard Gere, Julia Roberts and Jason Alexander
Genre: Comedy and Romance
A film that everyone went crazy for at the time. All of the girls went through a craze where they wanted to dress up just like Vivian. This is the film that sent Julia Roberts into stardom overnight. Garry Marshall’s directing is very good. I would love to get the soundtrack to this and think it would be great listening. The script is very well written. Both Richard Gene and Julia Roberts are so appealing. This movie is very sweet and innocent. Pretty Woman was one of the biggest money-spinning blockbusters of the decade. Originally going to be a film called $3,000 and was going to be a serous drama about a man buying a prostitute for the night. Sandra Bullock was offered the part of Vivian but turned it down. There is a scene in this where Richard Gere is playing the piano. This is for real and he actually composed the piece of music that is played. At the Golden Globe Awards in 1991 Julia Roberts won an award for Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture – Comedy or Musical.
