Pretty Woman (1990)
Traditional fairy tale in a modern world
Pretty Woman is the ultimate fairy story in a modern world. Instead of a prince and princess, we have a self-concerned businessman and a young Hollywood Boulevard hooker. The film would have fared a lot worse had Dennis Hopper been allowed to play the role Richard Gere eventually landed. He and Roberts have this on-screen chemistry that makes the whole film light up. Admittedly, the story isn't all that realistic but it doesn't bother you until after the film has ended. You watch and let it wash all over you. Both characters turn out better people because of their meet-up: Gere realises that there is more to the world than making money and Roberts learns that there is more to sex than just getting high. Watch it and love it. If you don't love Gere and Roberts by the time you get to the piano scene, turn it off, find your soul, and then try again.
The classic Christmas film
Scrooge is one of those films where you can sit down and let it wash all over you. Finney is the perfect Scrooge: despicable, mean, sarcastic and a lot better than others who have portrayed the miserly character. Scrooge's love and loss of Isabelle is touching as is Tiny Tim's song about his dream of Christmas. The depth of feeling, character and love combines into this absolutely wonderful musical which, while showing the horrific differences between the two classes of society, shows how they can be combined with a little Christmas cheer. By the end of the film, you might just find that there is a little more to Christmas than you thought. I dare you to watch it and sing along to all those catchy numbers!
