Pretty Woman (1990)
"Who knew it was so much fun to be a hooker? "A man in a legal but hurtful business needs an escort for some social events, and hires a beautiful prostitute he meets... only to fall in love.
Only In Hollywood Movies Do Hookers Look Like This
This was the ultimate example of Hollywood glorifying prostitutes and
showing them to be gorgeous (and basically good-hearted) women. I do
NOT speak from experience but from number of real-life cop-friends I
can tell you this: you average hooker looks the OPPOSITE of Julia
Roberts (or Melanie Griffth or Elizabeth Shue and all the rest of the
hooker-hotties Hollywood throws at us.)
Hokey? Definitely, but it's still a fun movie which has entertained
most people who have watched it the past 15 years. Roberts and Richard
Gere certainly make a handsome couple. Hector Elizondo almost steals
the show with his minor role as "Barney," the hotel manager. He is
definitely the most humorous character in the film.
It's a funny, charming and romantic film that was a big hit. Just don't
believe it when Hollywood continues to glamorize the worst aspects of
society, something it always does.
