A feel good, old-fashioned (except for all the cuss words), liberal message movie for the people ...

January 1, 2000
Not only is every plot development signaled far in advance, but nearly every scene in the film's long second section rings a variation of one of two themes: 1) Julia Roberts tells somebody off, or 2) Julia Roberts feels somebody's pain.

It is not a movie, but a collection of scenes that serve one purpose only: to justify Julia Roberts as a movie star.

January 1, 2000
The film exploits Julia Roberts' role as a 'pretty woman,' whose prettiness is toyed with by the awful --yet eye-catching-- clothes she wears, and which glamorizes the character's less exciting qualities that drive the story.

Ultimately the story seems rather slight.
