168. Pretty Woman

When I was a little girl, my mama used to lock me in the attic when I was bad, which was pretty often. And I would- I would pretend I was a princess… trapped in a tower by a wicked queen. And then suddenly this knight… on a white horse with these colors flying would come charging up and draw his sword. And I would wave. And he would climb up the tower and rescue me. But never in all the time… that I had this dream did the knight say to me, “Come on, baby, I’ll put you up in a great condo.” 

For the first hour I just thought about how differently she would’ve been treated if she just changed her clothes. But boy, does Julia Roberts clean up well. 

Their first kiss - floored me, just marvelous; and the subtle “I love you”, ah. 

Also, I’ve never seen Jason Alexander be such a bad guy! That scene (you know what I’m talking about) was an awful sight to watch. I can’t believe he punched her too! Such a wanker.  

And I loved Barney Thompson!

It must be difficult to let go of something so beautiful. 

I died. So many meanings - THE MEANINGS!
Plus, he was so sweet to Vivian. This is the same guy from The Princess Diaries, remember? The driver - Joe! He just happens to be much younger in this movie. This guy is always playing the helpful grandpa figure. He’s actually been in quite a few of Garry Marshall films; there was also the hairstylist, and queen’s assistant from The Princess Diaries in this movie as well. 

And Bridgette was so sweet too. 

Vivian: Bridge? He’s not really my uncle. 
Bridget: They never are dear. 

Then there was the last scene. Richard Gere rolls in on a white stag (limo) in a cliche romantic way. Julia Roberts releases her long locks as Richard climbs up the tower (ladders) to rescue her. 

Edward Lewis: So what happens after he climbs up and rescues her? 
Vivian: She rescues him right back. 

So much cheese. But I love cheese.
