Line(s) of the Day #PrettyWoman

Pretty Woman

Vivian: People put you down enough, you start to believe it.
Edward Lewis: I think you are a very bright, very special woman.
Vivian: The bad stuff is easier to believe. You ever notice that?

Julia Roberts and Richard Gere in the modern day fairy tale Pretty Woman (1990). In the very fondly remembered film, a prostitute and a wealthy businessman fall in love despite vast differences in personality, wealth and social standing.

  1. A wonderful line you have picked out Alex. That image just reminded me of how uptight Edward is seen to be at the start. That hot shot lawyer who stays in his suit with utter importance and ignorance to Vivian’s personality which is blended together in such a bemusing but charming manner as the movie progresses, he truly does see alot more past her eccentric demeanour, a woman who has been left hurt and vunerable than she comes across and simply a ‘pretty woman’ who needed much love and an opportunity to show her true worth.

    • It’s a great line and very true. I thought about using the one at the end too, about him rescuing her and then her rescuing him back too. Some of my favourite scenes involve the hotel managers. I love actors who can steal scenes with even a small amount of lines.

      • Agreed. I really admired Barney Thompson thr hotel manager I believe. Edward says to him “I think we both know she’s not my niece” to which a sophisticated, polite Barney responds “ofcourse”. The way he says it seems so charming and makes you smile or smirk rather.

      • I saw an interview wit the director and he quoted how he always tried to use that same actor in all his films. When he calls in a friend to help her find an outfit is lovely. And teaching her to use the cutlery. “It is difficult to let go of something so beautiful.”
