“Pretty Woman” is 25 years old, can you believe it?
For a woman, “Pretty Woman” has it all. The handsome and rich male protagonist (and he’s not kinky! Any reference to a certain Mr Grey is not casual), the female protagonist who deserves a better life, beautiful clothes, some touching moments (I always cry when Vivian goes back home with “It Must have Been Love” by Roxette as background music) and a happy ending. At the end of the day, we love fairy tales.And since fairy tales are supposed to teach us something, this is what I learnt from “Pretty Woman”.
Call it destiny, fate, karma or whatever you like, being in the right place at the right time is crucial, and it’s not something that happens only in movies.
Even if I never tried, sometimes I still wonder if strawberries really enhance the flavor of champagne. This is silly, I know, but I’d really like to try.
At the end of the day, we all like to think that it ended like all fairy tales do… They lived happily ever after.
And do you know what? They were not even supposed to! “Pretty Woman” was conceived as a dramatic movie about prostitution and both Vivian and Edward should have been unpleasant people with bad tempers!
I think we’re all thankful about the drastic change of direction!
