Granted, Julia Roberts is fairly charming as the titular character, but otherwise it feels too light for its own good - even when it does edge into sufficiently unsettling territory towards the end, it still feels weirdly inconsequential afterwards due to the treatment of the rest of the film.
So I felt this needed a rewatch because it was on TV and I missed it, so then of course just HAD to watch it on DVD the next day because it's just a given that you MUST watch Pretty Woman any time it comes on TV, even when you own the DVD and can watch it any time you want.
Mention should also be made of a couple of effective supporting performances by Marshall's good-luck charm Hector Elizondo as the manager of the hotel where Edward and Vivian are staying and Jason Alexander as Edward's friend and business partner, who is so jealous of Edward and Vivian's relationship he can't see straight.
