Pretty Woman (1990)

prettywomanBy Scott Goldfine

In a star-making role, Julia Roberts plays a prostitute who’s hired for a week by a corporate raider (Richard Gere) in this romantic comedy. Initially hired as a paid escort, Roberts eventually captures Gere’s heart.

The chemistry generated by the two leads and a number of funny moments keep this predictable recycled romp afloat. The Garry Marshall-directed flick also stars Ralph Bellamy, Jason Alexander and Laura San Giacomo. Rated R.
