    Something special.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    The sweetest and most openhearted love fable since "The Princess Bride."

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Jay Scott

    The intelligence and wit of this glass-slipper heart-of-gold fantasy are shocking.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Joe Berry

    A modern-day treatment of Pygmalion and Cinderella rolled into one, it is graced by first-class performances from two easy-on-the-eye stars and a sharp, funny script.

    Empire Full Review
  • Rita Kempley

    Roberts and Richard Gere costar in this bubbly scamper, which goes to the head like champagne -- the cheap, sweet kind that leaves you with a throbbing head. And yet this monstrously derivative romance is great giddy fun.

    Roberts handles the transition from coarse and gawky to glamorous with aplomb.

  • Desson Thomson

    But it's Roberts's memorably comic performance that is the most distinguishing aspect of the movie. As the gawky professional companion, she's ticklishly appealing.

  • Staff (Non Credited)

    The silly script lurches from one jarring, implausible moment to another, and Marshall directs like he was wearing earplugs and boxing gloves on the set.

    TV Guide Full Review
  • Jonathan Rosenbaum

    Proves that the Disney people can sell just about anything--including a misogynistic celebration of big business and prostitution.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Owen Gleiberman

    Starts out as a neo-Pygmalion comedy, but the film is slow, earnest, and rhythmless.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Stanley Kauffmann

    No one is expected to believe Pretty Woman . We're just supposed to enjoy it... Pretty Woman wants only to engage us for two hours, and it does. [16 Apr 1990, p.26]
