The movie is a fairy tale, more about American consumerism than a reformed prostitute, but it's worth seeing for Julia Roberts charismatic performance.

This is London

It's all fairly unconvincing - but its heart is roughly in the right place.

Takes the Disney princess and puts her in the real world, creating a chick flick with a little bit of edge, a whole lot of heart and and even more chemistry between the film's two leads.

Believing in love is swell and all, but maybe we're better off not buying the brand Pretty Woman is selling. [Blu-ray]

The movie itself, a modern update of the Cinderella story, is as contrived as you get--isn't that not-so-secretly what we want?--but at no point is Roberts' performance

This is old-fashioned, assembly-line moviemaking without the old panache.

Against all odds, the presence of the incomparable Julia Roberts makes this a damn enjoyable career-defining film for Garry Marshall, and a guilty pleasure for movie lovers.

Gere and Roberts do good work, but this feelgood fantasy is laced with some preposterous messages about love, success and money.

Pic's casting is astute, with Gere underplaying like a sturdy ballet star who hoists the ballerina Roberts on his shoulders.

Bound to offend prostitutes and millionaires everywhere, this flick is not the street-smart Pygmalion it desperately wants to be.

Low on real social comment, this modern fable still has more than enough chemistry between its leading pair to rake in the box-office rewards.

It's saying Roberts' character becomes a better person when she lands a rich guy and learns to cry at the opera.

Top Critic IconTop Critic

For a film that attempts to satirise snooty materialism, it focuses too pantingly on the designer labels, and comes down firmly on the side of 'rich is better'.

Combustible Celluloid

Director Garry Marshall somehow lucked into a hit despite his oppressive 125-minute running time and excessive schmaltz.

Plenty sappy and unrealistic but also a funny and dysfunctionally romantic charmer.

An emotionally appealing film that taps into our primal feelings about money, power, pleasure, shame, intimacy, and love as a redemptive power.
