Movie Moment

Vivian: You're late.
Edward Lewis: You're stunning.
Vivian: You're forgiven.

Unless you've been living under a rock since the 90's, you have probably seen Pretty Woman a few times and love it...and whats not to love? Its the classic cinderella story all over again (well, if cinderella had briefly turned to street walking)  - There is a rich man, a gorgeous girl who is down on her luck, they meet, she gets a makeover, they fall madly inlove, and live happily ever after  *le sigh*

I have quite a few favourite scenes in the film, but I always enjoy the scene where Vivian (Julia) goes back to the mean shop assistants and makes them feel stupid for not helping her.

This week Pretty Woman celebrated its 20 year anniversary. It was first released on 23 March, 1990.

What is your favourite scene in this film?

  7. One of my favourite movies of all time...so many good moments, but I do like the polo scene where everyone else is stuck up and formal and Viv does a "Whoop whoop!" arm roll cheer. Also love the dress she's wearing in that scene (brown polka dot)

  9. I really need to watch this again. Nothing like a movie that glamorizes prostitution. I really do love it though.

  13. I enjoyed the movie but I never accepted the 'pretty woman' part. I can't get over that (in my mind) she looks (and laughs) like a horse.

    Sorry! lol!

  15. I love this scene too and I like it when he snaps the box and she gets a frights and laughs. I believe she wasn't really a lady of the night or not for long. I am sticking to my story.

  17. Have you seen Valentine's Day? Right at the end in the credits, Julia Roberts says that line, "Big mistake. Huge."

    I loved that reference.
