Eevin

Pretty Woman (1990)

Recommended Posts

The film is the highest-grossing romantic comedy of all time adjusted for inflation, at $364m domestic. It was released at the height of Julia Roberts' popularity, making $178.4m domestic off of an $11.3m opening weekend; however, perhaps the most amazing thing about it is its overseas run, in which it obtained $285m and $463.4m worldwide on a $14m budget.

For reference, Home Alone did $191m overseas. Ghost did $288m. Dances with Wolves did $240m. Even Batman and The Last Crusade, released the year before, made $160m and $277m respectively. Pretty astonishing. http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=prettywoman.htm

This movie was her first hit. The height of her popularity was like late 90s, not this

 

Still was impressive

Kind of disappointing that rom-coms aren't made anymore. It was the path for actresses to make the A-list. 

 

Pretty Woman feels very trope-y watching it now since every romcom in the past 25 years has used the plot or at least the tropes of this movie, but it was actually the originator for a lot of them.
