It’s one of those movies that you have to have seen. Impossible to overlook, impossible to forget, Pretty Woman is a reference. Julia Roberts and Richard Gere made a legend with that romantic movie and I think everyone (and their dog) has seen it at least once.
Roy Orbison’s song, Pretty Woman, is as joyful and easy as the movie. So today I come before you saying “Yes, I liked Pretty Woman!”. I enjoyed that movie and it’s part of a movie shelf some label as superficial and commercial. I label as movie tout court. Because it’s entertainment and it’s supposed to be entertaining. And lovely. And joyful! Ooooohh-oooooooh, pretty woman! (right after the break there’s a clip with Roy Orbison singing Pretty Woman live)
