Director: Garry Marshall
Summary: A man needs an escort for some social events, and hires a beautiful prostitute he meets… only to fall in love.
Times Watched: 2 or 3
My Experience: This is entertaining I suppose but it all feels kind of awkward from a feminist perspective. It just seems like a man-fantasy, but instead of turning a lesbian straight, it’s turning a prostitute’s life around. And what are the chances he found a street hooker who doesn’t come with any baggage or an angry pimp? I suppose that would be a different movie, though, and this is straight Hollywood. Gere and Roberts do have chemistry.
