Pretty Woman: A Brand New Post About a Not So Brand New Movie

Updated: Mar 20, 2020

Opening Statement: I hope to enlighten my readers on a short journey into my views! I plan to post every Sunday for the most part, unless I have any spur of the moment ideas or a busy schedule which may restrict me from posting that week. Thank you and enjoy!

So you may be wondering why I have chosen to write about an almost 30 year old movie and what I possibly could say that hasn't already been said in past years. If you could believe it or not, the first time I saw Pretty Woman in its entirety was back in November of 2018. It is actually the film that sparked my idea to create a blog because by the end, I had written down a ton of notes in my phone about the film that I wanted to share. I will share some of them with you today!

The storyline itself is an intriguing concept that is both scandalous and unique for the big screen. This movie brought some pretty private things out into the open, and this is not to say this was the first film to do so, but it definitely is a prominent example. Now there are many conversation points for which I can cover about Pretty Woman, but I am simply going to pinpoint just a few that stood out to me.

Most of my thoughts came into clarity within the last 10 minutes of the film when "Vivian" decides she may want to go back to high school and sort of start over after her romantic and intense journey with "Edward." The two had parted ways for the most part and I was left thinking "how could things turn around in the next 4 minutes before this ends and the next program starts???" Of course, things turned around perfectly within those last 4 minutes, closing this love story on a positive note.

Now I was left to wonder a few things: Does she go back to high school like she said or does she run off with her love, leaving that goal behind? What happens when they get married and their kids ask how they met...that may be a bit awkward!? Also, I feel like I wanted some sort of buffer between their strictly business relationship into their real romantic relationship. I felt like I wanted him to apologize for once paying her for sex. As great as this movie is, I did feel like I needed some transition from how their relationship started, into what it became. Although, I guess in some way, when Vivian says that "she rescues him right back" after Edward had climbed up that treacherous fire escape, some closure is made because it is then in that moment accepted that they both were in different and somewhat darker places before they met each other.

Overall, I found the movie lovely and thrilling and finally understood why I've heard about its greatness since I was young. I also finally understood why I was never allowed to watch it until I was much older! There you have it! Some of my thoughts on Pretty Woman after viewing it for the first time!
