Pretty Woman (1990) Richard Gere, Julia Roberts, Jason Alexander - Because of his extreme wealth and suave good looks, Edward Lewis could seemingly have any woman he wants, that committed significant other which he needs on his arm at social events to further how he makes his money as a corporate raider. However, he focuses more on his corporate raiding pursuits with his partner in crime, Philip Stuckey, his lawyer of ten years, than those women, with every significant other he's had in his life feeling neglected and eventually leaving him, this fact about which he is just coming to the realization. In Beverly Hills, Edward, in needing that woman on his arms as he and Philip work toward taking over the company owned by the increasingly insolvent James Morse, decides, based on a chance encounter, to hire Hollywood Boulevard hooker Vivian Ward as his escort for the week 24/7. He does so because he wants to have a professional who would be committed to the work, yet not have any commitments to her after the week is over. Beyond their chance encounter.

Pretty Woman Quote: “You and I are such similar creatures Vivian, We both screw people for money” – Edward Lewis


When it comes to 1990’s chick flicks, Julia Roberts is practically the living embodiment of the rom-com genre. From Steel Magnolias and Nottinghill to Runaway Bride, her body of work is almost universally loved by women, and tolerated by the men in their lives. Yet there is one film in the pantheon of Roberts’ repertoire which all men do secretly love: Pretty Woman. So this week we dive into the 4$ bin and pullout the supposedly modern day version of Cinderella.

The story of a woman, Vivian (Julia Roberts) forced into the underground world of prostitution as a way to survive in Los Angeles. She becomes a week long “companion” for an extremely wealthy business man, Edward (Richard Gere). Sadly after spending a week in Beverly Hills luxury and living the life she’d always dreamed of…. she’s forced to return to her sad existence and again sell her body for money. Ok.. that’s not how the movie ends, but we all know it should have.
