Honestly, if you need me to convince you to come see this movie, I'm not sure what to say. Except for maybe... um... IT'S PRETTY WOMAN. COME ON.
It's the film that made me (and the rest of America) fall in love with Julia Roberts! It's the movie that actually makes Richard Gere, not to mention the profession of prostitution, seem really attractive! And, most important of all, it features the best shopping montage EVER, ending with one of my favorite cinematic eff you's of all time ("Big mistake. HUGE").
Is there anything PRETTY WOMAN can't do? It's the movie we turn to when we need a reminder that not all guys are jerkfaces, that even when we're down on our luck, selling ourselves on the streets, there is still hope that one day, we'll get to take a huge bubble bath and then jump on the bed in a hotel penthouse.
In other words, PRETTY WOMAN is therapy, and when you combine it with cocktails and a theater full of people singing along to Prince's "Kiss," it's potentially life-changing. So hopefully I've convinced you to join me for Girlie Night, but if not, here's one more reason: Jason Alexander is in it!
Ha ha, just kidding. The actual reason is IT'S PRETTY WOMAN. (Sarah Pitre)
