Theater Thursday

Guess what today is...
This week's featured movie is a true classic. Pretty Woman
Pretty Woman follows the life of Vivian (Julia Roberts), a prostitute and Edward (Richard Gere) a rich and powerful businessman. When Edward comes to Los Angeles on business he finds himself needing a date to take to business functions. Not wanting to deal with emotions or his soon to be ex-girlfriend he stumbles upon Vivian while trying to find his hotel, The Beverly Wilshire. Vivian agrees to show him the way to his hotel for 20 bucks and along the way they strike up a conversation. 
Once they get to the Beverly Wilshire, Edward finds himself not wanting to part ways with her. He's intrigued by her and invites her up for the evening. The next morning he realizes that he would like to hire her to be his escort for the entire week. Vivian is more than happy to oblige. Over the week they begin to grow fond of each other and things become more difficult each of them knowing that they'll eventually part. 
During the course of the week they attend multiple functions and encounter some very funny situations that have now become classic movie scenes. They also have some very touching and cry worthy scenes. If you've never seen Pretty Woman, then you are surely missing out.

One of my favorite movies. One thing I love doing while watching it (and this may sound weird) is looking for all those movie mistakes. Ya know, like her bag's on her left shoulder, and in the next scene it's bammm on her right. Or, the dessert is on the table, next scene it's not, next scene it is, or the glass is suddendly empty or whatever. ;) Love it. It's one of those movies that has the most mistakes. ;) Makes it special and quite fun to watch. AND, I would give anything to wear her brown dress. :) YES.

Have a great day girl.

The movie that made me fall in love with Julia Roberts and the idea of "a fairy tale ending with a jacked up story" I love this movie! I cant believe that there are people out there who havent seen it. Shame
