Quotes

[first lines]
Rick: Hold on a second. Hey, there.
Natalie: Hey.
Rick: [Rick starts to talk on the phone while Natalie undresses herself] I feel like you're not hearing me, because if you were, I wouldn't be repeating myself, that's why. No, because I told... look, I told you three times, okay? Look... We'll get going in two. No, the Nagasaki merger has to happen at 15.6. That's black and white. There's no doubt about that, okay?

The more realistic 'Pretty Woman' of the 10's
30 July 2015 | by Thijs79See all my reviews

In the end of my childhood I have seen Pretty Woman a few times. Later in my twenties I have watched the movie again. And then you realize this movie is not so romantic anymore. It's just a lucky (beautiful) prostitute that gets an (attractive) rich guy. That movie is told like a beautiful fairy tale with a happy end.

This movie comes much closer to reality. The main story line of the movie is predictable, but there are enough enjoyable moments to like this movie. Also the chemistry between the main characters makes it fun to watch.

The motivation of the main characters makes the story believable and you can empathize with them; cyberbullying, loneliness, self esteem, money problems, family issues, addictions, rejection and of course the 'is love real' question.

So Yes, it's not a 'Pretty Woman' fairy tale and NO it's also not based on a true story, it's something in between and that makes is worth the effort to watch.
