Pretty Woman

For the Roy Orbison song sometimes known as "Pretty Woman", see Oh, Pretty Woman.

Pretty Woman is an American romantic comedy motion picture that was one of the top films at the box office in 1990. The winner of the Golden Globe Award and nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actress for her lead performance as Los Angeles streetwalker Viv Ward, actress Julia Roberts achieved megastar status as a result of this film.

In a role modeled in part on real-life business financier Henry Kravis, co-star Richard Gere portrays Edward Lewis, a wealthy and ruthless businessman who makes a living as a corporate takeover specialist.

An oft-told love story about two people from opposite ends of the social spectrum who meet and fall in love, Pretty Woman is the highest-grossing romantic comedy in history.

The film also featured the song "Oh, Pretty Woman" by Roy Orbison, "King Of Wishful Thinking" by Go West, and the first major hit of the Swedish band Roxette, "It Must Have Been Love".

The movie was heavily edited into the final result which most are familiar with. It is often referred to as a story about a "hooker with a heart of gold," inferring that although she has chosen a lifestyle of prostitution, the character of Vivian is actually a good person. The original script painted her as hyper-sexual and a heavy drug user. These aspects were eventually incorperated into the character of Kit. However, scenes were filmed (but cut) that feature into these personality flaws. Notably, a moment occurs when Vivian comments that she would rather give the character of Edward speedy gratification than have to spend the night with him. ("I could just pop 'ya good and be on my way.)" Another filmed scene has her confronted by drug dealers outside of The Blue Banana only to have Edward rescue her. These were included on the 15th anniversary DVD release.

Notoriously, Roberts has commented that the body on the cover is not her own; her head was pasted on a photograph of her body double, who also appeared in the opening sequence of the film.
