Le Anne of Tinsel And Tine97 - The Today Show reunited the cast of one of my all time favorite movies - PRETTY WOMAN to celebrate the movie's 25th Anniversary. This is my go to when I just wanna shut out the world. I'm all in every time, every scene...I call Pretty Woman one of my guilty pleasure addictions, because it's a romantic comedy. However, it's one that hits all the right beats, every scene is tight, the cast is perfect, down to the elevator attendant. Most importantly, it's held up over time, so that's not really the definition of a guilty pleasure flick, it's actually good movie making. How did director Garry Marshall pull off creating such a charming movie featuring a hooker and a corporate raider? Like he said, it came down to chemistry!
