Edward is a rich and sophisticated businessman who specializes in corporate raiding - buying up businesses to break them up and sell them off in pieces. Vivian is a Los Angeles prostitute struggling with her lifestyle and a need to pay the rent. On a business trip to Los Angeles, Edward hires Vivian to be his girlfriend for a week while he traverses the local social circles. Love and various social complications invade their tidy arrangement and have the pair wondering if this Cinderella-story could have a happy ending.

Critic Reviews for Pretty Woman

All Critics (66) | Top Critics (15) | Fresh (41) | Rotten (25)

  • But in the end, what's most ridiculous about the film isn't the lack of realism.

    February 5, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Originally meant to be a serious drama (called $3,000) about a man buying a prostitute for the night, this turned into a delightful romantic comedy in the hands of director Garry Marshall and sent the career of star Julia Roberts into the stratosphere.

  • Despite its cornball attributes-maybe because of them-this is a sweetheart of an old-fashioned romantic comedy.

    February 5, 2019 | Full Review…
  • The message is plain: Men, especially rich men, have all the power. So be sure to do what they tell you, and maybe they'll treat you nicely.

    February 5, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Between a woman who sells her body and a man who sells shares there is no difference: There was no greater example of postmodernity than this. [Full Review in Spanish]

    Entertaining, but its not a very memorable movie

  • Nov 07, 2011
    Despite the cliché, Pretty Woman is memorable, compounded by great performances from Richard Gere and Julia Roberts. Formulaic, but beloved, Pretty Woman thrives on a perfect dream, perhaps a wild and modern interpretation of Cinderella.
